Actress-comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas has apologized to Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, owning up to her mistake in disrespecting the city government’s official seal.

The city council declared delas Alas and film director Darryl Yap persona non grata in June 2022 for posting a video in which the actress portrayed a character named Ligaya Delmonte, a parody of the mayor.

The triangular seal of Quezon City was also featured at the back of Delas Alas but its physical elements were edited and defaced.

In an interview on Fast Talk With Boy Abunda, she said did not mean to offend Belmonte, and that she was only acting out what was told by the director.

“I did that as an artist. They were the ones who did the script, the director and they, I am just an artist,” she said.

“Since she got offended, I am sorry, Mayor for hurting you. I am just an actress,” she said.
