“I don’t mean anything bad for you. I hope you forgive me. I wanna say sorry again,” Santos said in the video.

“Gusto ko humingi ng taos-pusog patawad sa mga fans ng Talk n Text, San Miguel, PBA at sa lahat ng mga nasaktan. Wala po akong masamang intensiyon. Inaamin ko po, mali po ako. Sorry po. Sana mapatawad niyo po ako,” he added.

Additionally, the PBA issued a P200,000 fine on Santos for the racist gesture. He will also be required to render 100 hours of community service and undergo seminar and counseling on equality and racial discrimination.
