I have to accept and assume that we have fallen into excess, I am not going to compromise my colleagues because I am the driver. Personally and corporately, I offer a thousand apologies to all those who felt offended.. If there is something that I have, it is respect for women because I come from one. This was not with a bad intention, it was taken out of context and that's where the problem comes from,” she said.
