Drew Arellano received heavy criticism on social media because of his Twitter post that many netizens found “very insensitive.”
KAMI learned that the said television host aired a short but ironic statement about the novel coronavirus disease that the Philippines and other countries are experiencing.
He straightforwardly stated through social media that the people are actually the virus and COVID-19 is the cure.
One of the individuals who lambasted Drew was Juan Miguel Severo. He asked the celebrity if he can tell his tweet to the family of those who died because of the disease.
Some netizens also called him “insane” for seemingly disregarding the efforts of medical practitioners who are working overtime to find the real cure for the virus.
“Drew, I know the human race sucks but let’s not paint this virus as a good thing. It’s insensitive to those who’ve lost loved ones,” the spoken word artist quipped.
“You’re the father of very beautiful children. Can you tell that to someone who’s lost his son to COVID-19?” he added.
In response, Drew decided to say sorry to the people who got offended by his recent statement on social media.
He recognized that his tweet was really insensitive and he hopes for all people to be fine amid the global pandemic.
“My apologies for the tweet. It was insensitive,” he wrote.
“Hoping everyone is fine on their end,” he added.
