MANILA - Actor Baron Geisler has issued an apology for urinating on fellow actor Ping Medina while filming a scene for their movie "Bugbog" on Sunday.

On Wednesday, Geisler took to Facebook to air his last take on the said controversy.

Aside from Medina, the actor also said sorry to all the people who were hurt by his actions.

"Para po sa mga aking nasaktan, Patawad po.. Para po sa mga nagmamahal sa akin at patuloy na naniniwala, Maraming salamat po," Geisler said.

In a lengthy post, Geisler again expressed his disappointment working with the film's director, Arlyn dela Cruz.

He even posted a screengrab of his exchange of text messages with the director to prove that the director wanted him in the film even if he already changed his mind and begged off from doing it.

Geisler who said that he will "work sober," shared that he went crazy after waiting for long hours on the set.

Suffering from a headache due to lack of sleep, the actor admitted he consumed two cans of beer in their second location.

After shooting a scene, the actor admitted that he drank two more cans of beer.

"Sa isang katulad ko ang 2 cans hindi tatalab sa akin para sabihin nilang "Lasing ako" natapos ko ang first take ko ng maayos sa second loc namin. Nagkatuwaan pa nga kami pagkatapos at nagkatawanan pa kami ni Direk. Nagantay ulit ako ng mga dalawang oras at muli humingi ng 2 cans ng pale pamparelax, alam ko may usapan kami pero di ko pinakita kay Direk ang pag inom. Ulit, ang apat na pale ay hindi tatalab sa isang katulad ko para sabihin "Lasing ako," Geisler wrote.

Geisler said that for the next scene, dela Cruz explained to them the things they are going to do. Feeling unsatisfied with the scene, Geisler told Medina that he will do something off-script.

He also tried to tell dela Cruz about his plan but because she's in a hurry, the filmmaker just told him to do what he is going to do and not to tell her anymore.

"Yung susunod na scene ipinaliwang na samin ni Direk ang mga gagawin, nag rehearse. Nabitin ako sa gagawin, kaya lumapit ako kay Ping upang sabhin na may ggawin ako sakanya at sana wag siya magalit. Ganun din ang ginawa ko kay Direk. Sinabihan ko siya na may gagawin ako ngunit nagmamadali siya para matapos na kami hindi na niya nagawang tanungin kung ano itong gagawin ko at sinabe nalang niya na "Sige gawin mo nalang wag mo na sabihin sakin" bilang isang direktor kailangan alamin mo parin upang maiwasan ang mga ganitong pangyayari," Geisler.

He added: "Kilala ko si Ping Medina isa sa mga pinakamagaling na actor ng mga Independent Films, alam ko na ready siya sa lahat ng mga eksena na mabibigat at kung ano pa man. Kaya hindi sumagi sa isip ko ang magiging reaksyon niya sa nangyari. Pagkatapos ng pangyayaring iyon humingi ako ng tawad, kahit na naghamon siya hindi ako lalaban hindi dahil sa wala akong laban. Sinabe ko pa nga na sige handa akong sapakin niya sa mukha para kahit papaano mabawasan ang galit niya."

In the end, Geisler apologized to Medina for what happened. He is also hoping that his rift with Medina will end in due time.
 
"Ganun pa man, alam ko na meron din akong pagkakamali kaya humihingi ako ng tawad kay Ping. Pare pasensya na. Kung ano man ang mga sinabe mo sa media okay lang, at kung ano pa man ang sasabihin mo okay lang din. Alam ko na maayos din ang lahat, aantayin ko nalang yung araw na magiging maayos din ang lahat sa atin," Geisler wrote.

In a recent interview, Medina expressed disappointment over Geisler, whom he alleged was drunk and under heavy medication as they filmed.

He also vowed to never work with Geisler again.
