ARWIND Santos has apologized to TNT import Terrence Jones as well as to the basketball community for his monkey gesture during Game Five of the PBA Commissioner's Cup finals.
Santos made the apology in a video posted on his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon.
"I dont mean anything bad for you. I hope you would forgive me. I want to say sorry again," Santos said.
Santos also apologized to the PBA, TNT, San Miguel and their fans as well as the others who were offended by what he did.
"Gusto ko rin humingi ng taos pusong pagpapatawad sa mga fans ng Talk 'N Text, San Miguel, PBA, at sa lahat ng nasaktan. Wala po akong masamang intensyon."
"Inaamin ko po mali po ako. Sorry po. Sana po mapatawad niyo ako. Tao lang pi ako, nagkakamali lang din po ako. 'Yun lang po sana mapatawad niyo ako. Sorry," Santos said.
His apology, however, didn't stop PBA commissioner Willie Marcial from slapping a P200,000 fine and requiring him to undergo 100 hours of community services for his actions.
