Robi couldn't hold her frustration and aired his personal sentiments on the issue. Speaking with his PBB co-host Bianca Gonzales, he warned that they forgive but they will never forget.

He said, "Walang kinalaman ang PBB dito, this is just me. Pero gusto kong ibalik sa kanya ang sinambit niya dati, doon sa naging issue niya with Aizyl. We can forgive but we will never forget.

Eto yung tinig ng mga nawalan. Pag labas nilang lahat sa bahay ni Kuya, ipapakita ko sa kanila to (points at ABS-CBN logo). This is not just a symbol, this is our mantra This is our life. Hay."
