"The MMDA should have told me", "The road should have been blocked"- as I heard him saying on an interview.

He even blamed everyone on why didn't anyone warned him that the road was impassible.

The online stir was not all about Lao's car floating on the flooded part of the street but on his statement on GMA 7 - 24 Oras' reporter Jun Veneracion. He was ended up being criticized by nitizens saying that he is arrogant.

"Lao was arrogant in the video that was broadcasted nationwide. No wonder people had a negative reaction upon seeing the said video clip. This is no excuse though for the type of criticism that he received via the internet. Just a thought. :" - Ana Karina Bartolome commented on a facebook page.

Official Statement from Christopher Lao
4 August 2011

The past few days have been very disheartening for me and my family. As you know I have been a subject of a viral video that showed my helplessness during a trying moment. As it stands right now, I have several hate pages in Facebook and Twitter with hurtful and derogatory messages attacking my person. The reputation that I built the past years has been besmirched. A bad day has now turned into wounded feelings and sleepless nights for me and my family.

I have been silent the past few days as I want this to go away soon but not before saying sorry and thank you to people who matter.

I would like to apologize for my behavior that was seen on nationwide television and now on the internet. It was unfortunate that I was caught on camera immediately after an overwhelmingly stressful mishap.

I would like to again sincerely thank those who braved the flood to help a distraught stranger like me. Their selfless act reminded me of how dependable Filipinos are in times of crisis.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family, friends and all of those who showed empathy, consideration and support throughout these trying times. You have given me strength and courage to rise above and be a better person.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher Lao
