He explained that it was inappropriate to broadcast it since Wowowee was supposed to be a fun and lively show and it would be hard for him to make the public happy when he could see the casket of Mrs. Aquino.

“Sa sitwasyon na ito, kung may nasaktan ako, I’m sorry. Sa pamilya Aquino, alam ng buong pamilya Aquino, wala akong masamang intensyon doon,” Revillame said on Wowowee on Tuesday.
