Ogie advised Jasmine to have some patience in waiting for an answer from delivery riders whom she’s trying to get in touch with as they might be busy navigating streets with their motorcycle.
The talent manager told the actress that delivery riders might figure in an accident if they force themselves to answer customer queries while riding.
“Hindi ba puwedeng nagmomotor ‘yon, Jasmine? Alam mo bang mas madidisgrasya ‘yun habang nagmomotor dahil kailangan kang sagutin?” Ogie said.

He then indicated that Jasmine should try texting or calling while riding a motorbike so she would have an idea how difficult it would be.
“Ikaw kaya mag-motor,” the talent manager suggested.
He then adviced that it would be better for the actress to have some compassion and empathy toward delivery riders whose only goal is to bring the orders of customers to its destination.
Ogie recalled his interview with actor Lester Llansang, who is now working as a delivery rider.
Lester, at the time, asked for understanding from customers as delivery riders often go through various situations.
While the showbiz reporter appreciated the fact that Jasmine first blurred the face of the rider before posting, he said it would be better to have some empathy and compassion next time around.
“Buti naisip mong i-blur ‘yung mukha nung driver. Next time, konting empathy, konting compassion,” Ogie said.
The actress has since then acknowledged her mistake and have also deleted her post.
