Kris Aquino statement vs. Phillip Salvador a ‘manipulation,’ says Nicko Falcis
Nicko Falcis says Kris Aquino is merely “playing victim” after she defended her son Josh from purportedly being made a joke by his father, Phillip Salvador.
Falcis, Aquino’s former project manager, shared a video clip today, March 2, on Instagram of talk show host Cristy Fermin on her radio show “Cristy Ferminute.”

Do not play the victim to the circumstances you created. Self-pity is the easiest way to create unilateral misery. While kids are innocent, she definitely is not. Thank you to all concerned netizens who keep sending us important information to remain vigilant and steadfast about her vile manipulations. Thank you, Cristy Fermin for the truth. Let’s end the #Krisis
During the episode, she gave her take on Aquino’s reaction to Salvador’s “joke” that came up during a skit in senatorial bet Bong Go’s campaign sortie.
Fermin claimed that it was a “diversionary tactic” by Aquino to distract people from the news that two qualified-theft complaints she had filed against Falcis were junked.
“Pa-victim na naman si Kris Aquino, paawa, nagdadrama (Kris Aquino is playing victim, acting pitiful and being dramatic),” said Fermin, describing Salvador as “collateral damage.”
Falcis thanked Fermin for “the truth.”
“Do not play the victim to the circumstances you created. Self-pity is the easiest way to create unilateral misery. While kids are innocent, she definitely is not,” he wrote in his post.
“Thank you to all concerned netizens who keep sending us important information to remain vigilant and steadfast about her vile manipulations.”
Falcis’ brother lawyer Jesus Falcis took jabs at Aquino on his Instagram Stories yesterday, March 1, stating that “if there’s a person victimizing Josh, it’s not the father.”
“Ang joke lang ni Bong Go at Ipe ay naloko ka ni Ipe (Bong Go and Phillip Salvador’s joke is that you were fooled),” he said.
While Aquino has not reacted directly to the brothers’ comments, she posted on Instagram yesterday the quote “There is dignity in silence.”
“Hindi kami ang nambastos. Hindi ako ang nanggamit. Hindi ako ang naging iresponsableng magulang,” she said.
(We did not disrespect others. I am not using others. I am not the one who was an irresponsible parent.)
She denied too that she has ambitions to run for a political position, which Falcis previously claimed.
“Hangarin ko lang na mabigyan si kuya at si bunso ng mapayapang ngayon at maayos na kinabukasan.”
(My wish is just to give kuya [Josh] and the youngest [Bimby] a peaceful present and a good future.) /ra
