Less than 24 hours after his monkey gesture aimed at Terrence Jones, San Miguel’s Arwind Santos has backtracked.

On Thursday, Santos has issued an apology to TNT’s Terrence Jones.

“I don’t mean anything bad for you I hope you forgive me,” Santos said in a video addressed to Jones.

“I wanna say sorry again,” he added.

Arwind was unapologetic on his gesture right after San Miguel Beer won Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals Wednesday over the KaTropa.

But it seems like Santos has come to his senses now.

“Gusto ko rin humingi ng tawad sa fans ng Talk ‘N Text, San Miguel, at ng PBA,” Arwind said.

“Wala po akong masamang intensiyon. Inaamin ko po mali po ako.Sana mapa-tawad niyo po ako, tao lang po ako nagkakamali din,” he added.
