The social media poster has apologized for the photo of four naked men in the popular Apao Rolling Hills in Tineg, Abra, yesterday.

Gusto ko lang po sanang ipamahagi ang aking paghingi ng tawad sa municipalidad ng Tineg at kay Mayor Crisologo. Kami ho ay nagkaroon ng maliit na katuwaan lang at hindi po namin ginawa iyon para makasama ng tao at mam’bastos ng isang tourist spot. Kami na po ay puno ng takot at hindi na kami makakain ng maayos dahil sa batikos sa social media, hindi na rin kami makalabas ng bahay dahil hindi namin alam anong nagaantay na puot ang aming sasapitin. sana mapatawad kami ng taong bayan at ng mga tao na nakabasa at nakakita neto sa social media. sana inyong maintindihan na kami ay mga bata lamang at hindi na kami uulit sa aming pagkakamali. Kung ang diyos ay kayang magpatawad ng kasalanan, sana ho mapatawad niyo rin po kami. Maraming salamat at kahit papano may natutunan kaming aral. akin pong uulitin, patawad. - Ley Benabese

Earlier, on the Facebook account of a man named Ley Benabese, the four men could be seen showing their naked backs with the caption "Hello 2020, haha" and immediately went viral.

However, it has been criticized by many netizens and locals as it only degrades the beauty of the area.

After some time, the controversial post was deleted.

Tineg Mayor Corinthia Crisologo has confirmed that they will take appropriate action regarding the post.

Apao Rolling Hills is one of the tourist destinations in Tineg town where the “picturesque panorama” of a grassland can be seen over the hills.

It also offers outdoor activities such as cycling or mountain biking, hiking and climbing.
