Davao City Mayor Sebastian 'Baste' Duterte has clarified that he apologized to Senator Imee Marcos out of pity for her following his resignation remarks to her brother, President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr.

"Madame Imee, linawin ko lang kasi ginagamit mo na sa drama mo diyan sa media. Humingi ako ng tawad dahil naawa ako sayo, hindi dahil sa mga sinabi ko tungkol sa kapatid mo na presidente," he said in an official Facebook post on Sunday, February 4.

It can be recalled that Duterte asked the president to resign due to his "laziness" and "lack of compassion" for Filipinos during the prayer rally against Charter change in Davao City last week.

A few days later, the presidential sister told reporters in an interview that the Davao City mayor came to her to apologize.

"Lumapit sa akin si Mayor Baste Duterte, nag-sorry nang nag-sorry. Naiintindihan ko naman. Sympre, sobrang emotional siya kasi isipin mo naman, ikukulong ang tatay mo at ate mo. Talaga naman mag rerebolusyon ang damdamin," Marcos said, referring to former President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Sara Duterte.

The younger Duterte asked the senator to exclude him from her so-called "drama."

"Tigilan mo na 'yang pag-gamit sa akin ng mga pambobola mo. Pinalampas na kita noong una, pero ngayon ang ingay mo pa rin," he ended.

Meanwhile, in a statement posted on her official Facebook page, Marcos said she and the Davao City mayor had already talked to patch up the misunderstanding.

"Nagkausap na kami. Ok[ay] na. Nak[o] hindi na ako basta-basta magkukuwento, at sa kaguluhan ngayon ay napakadaling baliin at bigyan ng maling kahulugan; parang may gustong mag-away kami, buti at nakapag-usap na kami, at hindi ko na ikukuwento," she said.
