Aquino was recently caught in a squabble against Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson over issues that surround the Aquino family.

Stating that it would be her final say in the matter, Aquino took to Instagram to post about her thoughts and feelings towards her being an Aquino.

"Humility is VERY HARD for me... i am loving, generous, and hard working. But in my world to WIN- you need to 100% believe in yourself. Kailangan magtiwala ka ng bongga sa sarili para pagkatiwalaan ka... i went to the Feast of the Sacred Heart Mass Friday night- my mom was a devotee, 1 of her last gifts for me was a Sacred Heart of Jesus. I spent time thinking- ma pa-proud ba ang Mom and Dad na pinagLABAN ko sila? YES they would. But my Mom would’ve scolded me sa pag “clapback” and for using my fluency in written English. My dad would have loved the feistiness BUT mapagsasabihan ako- “yung binansagan ng Mommy mo na female Ninoy hindi si Asec Mocha ang aawayin.” May dugtong yan na “beautiful (that was his pet name for me) yung female version ko HIGANTE ang aawayin, hindi ang sundalo lang nya.” NO- i am not referring to PRRD. #respect❤️ Walang plus points kay Presidente kung sirain nya ang alaala ng mga magulang ko... Sino ba ang pinaka makikinabang kung bastusin ang inambag ni Cory and Ninoy Aquino para sa demokrasya ng 🇵🇭? Siempre yung nagnakaw nun... i’m sorry nagalit ako sa “nagtrabaho lang.” Nakalimutan nung #girlboss na may sariling production company na matagal mag edit, especially when materials you’re working with have to be digitally remastered to become high resolution. From Korea paano ka naman magkaka time na maghalungkat ng footage ng tatay ko- na mismong Aquino library namin sa Tarlac hindi kumpleto ang videos from August 21, 1983? Tama kang wag mag sorry sa kin... Hindi ikaw ang MASTERMIND. Simple TRUTH- we both “endorse” products. Simple logic- aawayin ko ba si tita Susan Roces dahil Ariel ako and Champion sya? And you weren’t deserving of the hatred from my fans and supporters. Yung nagbabayad sa editors and writers mo ang dapat awayin at halukayin ang nakaraan, gawan ng memes at murahin- not you... i live in the territory of politically motivated hate because my last name is AQUINO- it’s part of my DNA and identity. WE ARE PART OF HISTORY. To @mochauson, I UNDERSTAND YOU... if you hit my parents again, i know TRABAHO LANG. P.S. when we lived in Boston, Baskin Robbins JAMOCA was my dad’s favorite ice cream flavor. #lovelovelove #nextchapterplease 💛💛💛👊🏼🎗

In her post, one of her fans asked for Kris’s opinion on the long going issue of Hacienda Luisita.

Hacienda Luisita is owned by Aquino’s family and has been under fire for decades. There have been cases reported that the farmers and workers are not treated justly, some even killed in massacres.

Aquino said in reply that the land was bought by her grandparents but was mismanaged by her mother’s brother. No further details were added by Aquino.

Another netizen told Aquino that she should have revealed this information early on so she would not have been constantly attacked.

Aquino had this to say:

"My favorite aunt was still alive, my auntie Passy…Out of respect for her I shut up. Nasigawan ako nung misis nung uncle na tinutukoy ko dahil [tinatawag] ko na si Noy dahil manunuod kami ng ‘Little Bossings.’ Nandun kami dahil sa auntie Passy kahit kailangan sikmurain yung walang ginawa kundi bastusin kami. Auntie Passy is now in heaven w/ my mom. Kaya pwede na akong magsalita.”

Aquino again did not provide any further information on the matter.

It is known, however that the late president Corazon “Cory” Aquino had two brothers, Pedro Cojuangco who is married to Rosario Cacho, and Jose “Peping Cojuangco who is married to Margarita “Tingting” delos Reyes Cojuangco.
