Former Health Minister Dr. Fuad Khan has apologized to masquerader Candice Santana for his offensive tone and comments.
Santana who played mas this year, shot into the spotlight after she was body-shamed in public and online.
Dr Khan, however, took issue with her weight and fat-shamed her online.
After much backlash and criticism, the former health minister is today saying sorry.
Khan says while he feels very strongly about the issue, it stems from his experience as a doctor.
He said as health minister he started as a programme to deal with non-communicable diseases and it's not being rolled out fast enough.
And that, he says, has made him angry.
Dr Khan is now offering his assistance to miss Santana for health services
