Singer Freddie Aguilar has no plans of issuing an apology for his comment that Charice (Pempengco) and Arnel Pineda (Journey band frontman) only proved what foreigners had said about Filipinos, being likened to monkeys because they would only mimic the styles and songs of other international artists.

“Bakit ako mag-a-apologize? I am speaking out the truth so why do I have to apologize? It’s my opinion and I am entitled to one. I am fighting for the truth,” he reportedly said.

“Sa mga nagre-react sa akin ngayon negatively, hindi ko kayo masisisi pero sana ay mamulat na tayo. Manggagaya ang marami sa ating mga Pinoy kaya kailangang magbago na tayo. Mahirap ang buhay pero mas hihirap kung magpapatuloy pa tayo sa panggagaya. Nawawala ang ating national identity kaya paano tayo paniniwalaan sa labas ng bansa? Wala talagang tutulong sa atin.” he added.
