Estrada admitted hitting a man during the parade last Chinese New Year in Binondo, Manila.

In a statement, Estrada explained that it was just an “outburst of anger” when the man leaped and grabbed his hand causing him to almost fall.

The ang pao, according to Estrada, contained P20 and P50 bills.

Isa itong insidente ng silakbo ng dugo dahil sa kagagawaan ng taong walang pakialam sa kaniyang kapwa,” Estrada said.

Meanwhile, Estrada also apologized after a senior citizen reportedly tumbled due to the commotion.

Kung natumba ang matanda dahil sa pasaway na iyon, baka bumaba pa ako ng trak at nabigwasan ko pa siya,” he said.

Gayunman, walang may gusto ng pangyayari at alam kong pagkabigla lang ang insidente kaya ako naman ay humihingi ng paumanhin sa publiko,” he added.
