Jasmine Curtis, Tinawag Na Pwet Si Derrick Monasterio! Bakit kaya?
Kapuso actor Derrick Monasterio has been under controversy lately after he posted on his Instagram story a joke about AIDS. Being a serious illness that is a growing epidemic in the Philippines, a lot of people found his joke to be super insensitive and offensive, particularly to people suffering from AIDS.
“I have a friend who’s miserable because he just found out that he has AIDS. My advice: stay positive!”

Because of what he did, netizens have started bashing Derrick on social media, particularly on Twitter. Derrick has since apologized, but a lot of people feel like his apology lacks sincerity and he is not repentant of what he did.
Shame Derrick Monasterio. How is this a sincere apology? Hampas ko sayo ung “Sorry if” mo. pic.twitter.com/P7gaJsuubq
