Huli sa camera! SBMA exec sorry for flashing the finger during UAAP Finals game

Dec 1, 2017 @ 6:01

An executive of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority has apologized for flashing his middle finger during the second finals game between the Ateneo Blue Eagles and De La Salle Green Archers in the UAAP Men’s Basketball tournament.

Sports writer Quinito Henson shared on his Instagram account the apology letter from SBMA deputy administrator Ruel Kabigting.

In the letter, Kabigting admitted he was the man seen in photos flashing the middle finger sign at fans from De La Salle University at one point during the game.

He said he was sorry for his actions and regrets them.

“The intensity of the game got into me. I vehemently reacted when I was being pointed to by some of your coaching staff as the plastic bottle thrower at the end of the game,” Kabigting said.

The SBMA official said he did not throw a water bottle at the court.

“I am not a violent man. Even during the heated years of our rivalry back in the 1970s, I never participated in any of the violence and abhorred it,” he said.

Kabigting apologized again and said he learned his lesson from the incident.

“I therefore commit to conduct myself as a true Christian gentleman at all times,” he said.
