News: Georgina Wilson Apologizes for Her Tweet about Joseph Estrada

The popular model says that her comment about the former president's voters was made four years ago.

Model Georgina Wilson has finally spoken up after she made headlines for branding the voters of former president and now Manila Mayor-elect Joseph “Erap” Estrada as “f***ing idiots.”

“Ugh i hate politics - but I only have one thing to say: Anyone that votes for Erap is a f***ing idiot," read her tweet, which was earlier thought by netizens to be deleted. reports that Georgina sent an email to the website’s managing editor Karen Pagsolingan on the evening of May 22 saying that her post about the returning politician was an old one that was not concerned with the recently held 2013 elections.

“I would like to clarify the details of a tweet I posted regarding former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada. The tweet was written 4 years ago in 2009 at a time when I was still studying at University in Australia. It is in no way connected to the recently concluded elections. The original post is still in my twitter timeline," she had written.

Despite this, Georgina still apologized to the Estrada family especially since Erap’s children Jake and Jerika Ejercito had reacted negatively to her remark.

"I fully understand the responsibilities that come with being part of this industry. I know my words were insensitive and hurtful but I feel it is not fair that it has been taken out of context," she said.
