Instead of fighting Agot Isidro with harsh words, the wife of Senator and People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao simply posted the Bible’s New Living Translation of Matthew 7:1-6 (Do Not Judge Others).
Though Jinkee did not mention any name, netizens speculated that the bible verses were for Agot, who earlier criticized the Pacquiao matriarch for being insensitive for posting her luxury bikes.
The highlighted portion, as seen in Jinkee’s Instagram story posted last night read:
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.
3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
6 “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.
However, Arnold L. Vegafria, the business manager of the Pacquiaos, hits back at Agot Isidro, saying the family’s hard-earned money is none of anyone’s business.
This Vegafria’s reply to Agot in full:
“What’s your issue, Agot?
“What Jinkee posts on her Instagram page is not for us to judge.
“What she does with her family’s hard-earned money is none of our business, because such bountiful blessings are just the fruit of her husband’s esteemed legacy as an iconic Filipino boxing legend and businessman, and are not stained in any way by graft or corruption.
“Jinkee has also worked her way up as a smart and prudent businesswoman with several investments under her good name.
“You probably have no idea as to the extent by which the good Senator Manny Pacquiao and his family have done so much to help our countrymen, not just during the past three months during the height of the pandemic, but even way before when he was still working hard to achieve his iconic stature.
“You probably don’t see or hear much about it because they are not the types to brag about their noble and charitable deeds for other people to see. They would rather do their humble acts of generosity away from the eyes of the media or the glare of the spotlight.
“And please be more discerning about your use of the word ‘nouveau.’
“The Pacquiaos have worked hard over the past decades to achieve their current standing in society, and despite their status, they have remained humble, low-key and generous to whoever asks for their help. Their fervent desire to serve their countrymen continues to inspire them to pursue higher education and excel in their public service endeavors.”
