A majority of the shots have just been captioned with a simple "Manila," which fans have been loving. He's been showcasing the realness of the country without any agenda... however, one photo really angered some fans.
The photo showed a young girl in the middle of the street looking directly at the camera. However, his caption read: "Well I'm not your parent, don't gotta follow me around."
Fans were pretty unimpressed, leaving comments like:
Soon after, Cole took to Instagram to apologise.
Taking the photo down, he posted an IG Story writing: "For those of you that took offense to this photo or the caption, I removed it. My apologies, and not my intention. Certainly not seeking to sensationalize poverty nor poke fun, shoulda have thought more about the words used, and the implications of those words I hadn’t even considered.
"I'll continue to post about my travels through Manila, showing all sides of the city as experienced."
