MANILA, Philippines - Actress Ara Mina posted a cryptic message believed to be her reply to her sister Cristine Reyes' public apology to her.
In her official Twitter account, Mina posted a quote saying that a "stiff apology" is an insult.

"A stiff apology is a second insult...The injured party does not want to be compensated bec he has been wronged; he wants to be healed bec he has been hurt." -G.K. Chesterton," Mina posted.

Mina also retweeted feedback from Netizens lambasting Reyes's statement.

"RT @DBlueGangsta: @realAraMina your sister should speak from the heart not from the kodigo she's reading."

"RT @lavender_22185: RT @bubblyluchz: I can't feel, sense & see the sincerity of Cristine Reyes while apologizing in #TheBuzz ? However, hope it'll heal your wounds @realAraMina"

Mina slapped Reyes with a libel case for allegedly maligning her and asking her  to turn over an SUV as payment for the remaining P1.8-million balance for a Quezon City townhouse they bought in 2011 for their mother.

Mina earlier demanded that Reyes issue a public apology for her to retract the case.

On Sunday, Reyes publicly apologized to Mina in a live interview on "The Buzz."

“I’m sorry and I would like to apologize if ever I offended you, sumama ang loob mo sa akin. I tried my best na pumunta sa iyo, alam mo iyan ate. Sinabi ko pa iyan sa ‘yo na kung gusto mo luluhod ako sa harapan mo,” she said.

“Sana lumambot na ang puso mo sa akin para maayos na itong gulo, para tahimik na, para sa ikakatahimik ng pamilya natin,” she added.
