MANILA- "This time you crossed the line."
Kris Aquino on Tuesday slammed Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux "Mocha" Uson after the latter involved her late parents in defending President Rodrigo Duterte's "playful" kiss with a Filipina in South Korea.
Uson on Sunday posted a video of the late Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. receiving a kiss from two women on board a plane before he was assassinated in 1983 during the Marcos dictatorship.
The former sexy dancer posted the video in defense of Duterte who got flak for kissing a woman during a meeting with the Filipino community in South Korea.
Kris did not let Uson's post go unnoticed and lashed out at how the latter disrespected her father's memory and the Aquino family.
"Binalahura mo na ang buong pagkatao ng pamilya namin.... Mapapansin mo si Noy hindi parte ng video ko dahil buhay siya. Kaya niyang depensahan ang sarili niya," she said in a post shared both on Instagram and Facebook.
(You have disrespected my whole family. As you can see, I did not include Noy in the video because he is alive and can defend himself.)
She was referring to her brother, former President Benigno Aquino III, who has many times been on the receiving end of Uson's criticism online.
The actress and social media icon added that she cried upon seeing the video of her father as she felt envious of the two women who were able to kiss Ninoy before he was killed August 21, 1983.
"Pero nung napanuod ko 'yung inupload mo para depensahan si Presidente Duterte (na ni minsan hindi ko pinakitaan ng hindi maganda) alam mo ba kung ano ang ginawa mo? Sinariwa mo ang sugat sa puso ng isang batang 12 years old nung pinaslang ng walang kalaban laban ang kanyang ama," she added.
(When I watched your video in defense of President Duterte (who I have never once disrespected) do you know what you did? You revived the wound in the heart of a 12-year-old when her father was killed helplessly.)
Kris also slammed Uson for also disrespecting her mother, the late President Corazon Aquino, who died of cancer in August 2009.
"Umiyak ako ng tuloy tuloy dahil nainggit ako sa 2 babaeng nakahalik sa Dad ko bago sya pinatay. Isang regalong hindi binigay sa nanay ko na walang tigil mo ring binabastos," she said.
"Nangako akong hindi kita papatulan - but this time you crossed the line," she added.
(I couldn't stop crying because I was envious of the two women who were able to kiss my dad before he was killed, a gift that was not given to my mother who you continue to disrespect.)
The youngest daughter of the late Aquino couple, Kris said Uson reminded her of several moments in her life when she was accepted by her mother despite her shortcomings.
She cited as examples going home to the late president with her then one-month-old son Josh, and her admission on national television that she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
"Sa lahat ng naging palpak sa buhay ko - 'yun siguro ang kaibahan namin - wala kaming pinagtakpan. Wala kaming ginamit. Inako ko lahat ng mali ko at dahil nga minahal ako ng nanay ko at gusto kong maging mabuting ina - sinisikap kong ayusin ang buhay ko," she said.
(Of all the mistakes I have committed in my life, I think our difference is that we have not hidden anything. We did not use anyone. I took responsibility for my mistakes and because I was loved by my mother and I also want to be good mother, I am trying to fix my life.)
Kris then warned Uson that she would not back down against the former sexy star, and ended her message with emojis of three yellow hearts and a fist.
"Kaya ngayon hihiramin ko ang salita nya: Tama na. Sobra na... Kung may gusto kang punching bag, please ako na lang. Kasi buhay ako, kaya kitang sagutin. At hindi kita uurungan," she said.
(I am now borrowing her words: Enough is enough. This is too much. If you want a punching bag, use me because I am alive and I can answer you and I won't back down.)
