Presidential candidate Grace Poe defender her son Brian for posting “expensive” shoes that he bought.
“He saved up for that a long time. Even if assuming I was not agreeable to it, it made him happy. He has a right to it. Why should we stand in the way?” Interaksyon quoted her as saying.
Sen. Poe said that her son should be spared from politicking.
“He is a private citizen who deserves his privacy.” she said
Meanwhile, Brian Poe Llamanzares apologized for the controversy generated by his post in social media, saying that he has no intention to upset anyone.
“I apologize if anyone was offended by my shoes, it was never my intention to upset anyone. I just wanted to buy myself something after saving up for months,” he said.
“I don’t know much about shoes and I’m not exactly a sneaker expert so when I saw these online (at P10,000) and I liked the design, I saved up and bought the shoes,” he added.
