TV personalities RR Enriquez and Jeck Maierhofer earned ire from netizens after they made fun of a commuter, who was sleeping inside a UV Express van.

Top Gear Philippines posted on Facebook a video—which they captioned “HOW RUDE”—showing the stars of TV5's "Happy Wife, Happy Life" laughing as RR was honking at the said commuter van.

"Ladies and gentlemen, ang gagawin po namin ay magbubusina po kami para magising si kuya," RR said in the video.

Netizens felt sorry for the passenger and posted negative comments about the celebrities' behavior.

Lapse of judgment

RR, girlfriend of basketball player JJ Helterbrand, took to Instagram to apologize and reflect on her actions. She initially thought that her action was funny, but later on realized that it was "rude" following the comments she received from netizens.

"Yung nag trip kami ni tih @jeckmaierhofer sa passenger na natutulog.. Nag honk kami para magising sya.. At first i thought it was funny. Some people took it seriously, some people think its funny.. Kanya kanyang comment.. But now i can honestly say Yes you are rights its rude (sic)," RR posted.

She added that she usually posts funny videos of herself, but claimed that this is the first time that she involved another person.

"Sometimes we tend to do things dahil akala natin funny.. We do things ng hindi muna tayo nag iisip and i must say im one of them.. I usually post funny video of myself as in balahura talaga.. Because i just want to entertain everyone. And i must say this is the first time na ininvolve ko yung ibang tao," she said.

RR felt bad after realizing that the sleeping guy must be too tired, and yet they disturbed him.

"Nabreak din yung heart ko when i realized na siguradong pagod yung guy na yun kaya sya nakatulog and yet ayun inisteal pa namin yung konting tulog na magagawa nya sana," she said.

Apologizing the Christian way

RR answered her bashers by posting a Bible verse. Saying that she has learned her lesson, RR added that only God can judge her.

"And its a lesson learned for me but hello who are you to judge me? And question my faith as a Christian? Yes i am a Christian but that doesn't mean na im perfect na! That's why i need God in my life kasi nga im not perfect. If perfect na ako wala na magiging mayabang na ako kay God at iisipin ko na ako na si God. I must admit sobrang bully and naughty ko before and im super maldita pa but hello i know i changed a lot. But sometimes may magagawa ka talaga sa life mu na mali kasi nga walang perfect. Ang importante you learn how to humble yourself and admit yung maling ginawa mu. So sa mga taong mapanghusga jan.. Pansinin nyo muna yung sarili nyo kung minsan ba wala kayo nagawang nauthy sa life nyo? Grow up also.. Thank you and let God judge me.. And i guess lesson learned na sa akin ito.. Next time isip isip din dapat ako before i post or do something😪🙈 Again sorry and love love love," RR said.

Jeck, wife of cager Rico Maierhofer, also apologized for her "inappropriate behavior" and to the man they made fun of.

"I sincerely and wholeheartedly apologize for my inappropriate behavior in the video that has offended many. Sana po ay inyong tanggapin ang aking taos-pusong pag hingi ng tawad sa lahat lalo na po sa mama na nasa loob ng van," Jeck said.

The wife of basketball player Rico Maierhofer learned to "be more sensitive towards people's feelings and be more responsible for my actions."

"Tao lang po ako, hindi po ako perpekto, thank you sa lahat ng nagmessage, thank you sa asawa ko na hindi ako jinudge at niyakap ako,yan lang po talaga ang kailangan ko ngayon. Again, sorry po ulit," Jeck said.
