- Robin Padilla was bashed on social media for allegedly being disrespectful towards a Korean contestant on PGT
- His ex-girlfriend Vina opened up about the controversy
- According to the singer, the public is wrong to slam Robin and accuse him of being a racist
The latest celebrity who has reacted to Robin Padilla’s allegedly racist behavior towards a Korean contestant on “Pilipinas Got Talent” is Vina Morales, the actor-host’s ex-girlfriend.
KAMI learned from PUSH that the singer has defended her ex-boyfriend from his bashers.
According to Vina, the public just misinterpreted Robin’s intention when he reprimanded the Korean for not knowing how to speak in Tagalog even after being in the country for 10 years already.
“Paano ko ba ma-describe si Robin sa isang word? Kasi napakabuting tao nito eh,” she said.
“Naiintriga nga ngayon eh kaya please tigilan na yan kasi he really has a good heart…
“He has a good heart, good soul; may puso ‘tong taong ‘to I really have a soft spot kay Robin and lahat ng mga nagmamahal sa kanya, naiintindihan ‘yung mga napagdadaanan niya ngayon.
“I’m always supportive to Robin kasi I know how he is eh.
“Very straightforward siya pero hindi mo naman kailangan yung mga nagmamahal sa kanya hindi dapat dinidibdib ‘yon kasi kung may payo lang siyang ganoon, you know let’s take it in a constructive way ‘di ba?
“Para sa akin, dapat i-stop na [‘yung bashing] kasi may good intention naman ‘yon sa kanya bilang parang tatay katulad ng sinabi niya.”
Vina and Robin dated each other in the 90s while working on the movie "Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum."
However, Vina broke up with him due to the disapproval of the people around her, according to ABS-CBN News.
Robin is now married to actress-host Mariel Rodriguez.
