Angel Locsin has apologized anew for the 67-year-old man who died after collapsing while waiting in line at the community pantry she set up in Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City, further saying that she will help support the family of the deceased.

Taking to Instagram, the actress posted a full-black photo with a lengthy caption about the incident.

Locsin first asked forgiveness from the family of the deceased man, saying she had personally visited him at the hospital and paid her respects.

“Si tatay po ay isang masipag na ama na nagtitinda ng balut. Hindi ko man po siya nakilala pero sa pagkakakilala ko sa mga anak niya ay mabuti po siyang ama at maayos niyang napalaki ang mga anak niya,” she had captioned.

She also promised that she will also support the deceased man's family as long as she can.

“Ang nangyari po ay akin pong pagkakamali. Sana po’y wag madamay ang ibang community pantries na maganda po ang nangyari,” she said.

"Sa ngayon po, I will prioritize helping the family and I will make it my responsibility to help them get through this," Locsin added. "I am very very sorry."

She first posted an apology video earlier today, stating “sa lahat po ng naabala ngayon, pasensya na po. Hindi po ito talaga yung intensyon natin. Kahit anong paghahanda naman po natin para ma-avoid yung mga ganitong gulo, hindi lang po talaga siya ma-control.”

“Gusto ko lang po talagang i-celebrate ang birthday ko sana na makatulong ako sa ibang tao. Hindi ko po intensyon na makagulo,” added Locsin.
