- Ben Tulfo lambasted Regine Velasquez over her statement versus Teddy Locsin
- Because of this, the singer’s husband, Ogie Alcasid, responded to the journalist
- The TV5 anchor then told Ogie to tell his wife to focus on her career
Ben Tulfo immediately responded to the message of Ogie Alcasid after he defended his wife Regine Velasquez over the harsh words that the veteran anchor threw against her.
KAMI learned that the broadcast-journalist maligned the “Asia’s Songbird” for questioning the intelligence of Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teddy Locsin, Jr.
This is due to the said government official’s statement on the issue regarding some Chinese vessels getting endangered giant clams in the Panatag Shoal.
Ben pointed out through Facebook live that Regine should mind her own business because she does not know anything about the matter.
He also stated that the Kapamilya singer just meddled with the issue even if she is not an expert on issues about foreign affairs.
"Ang mensahe ko sa 'yo, Regine Velasquez, next time you open your mouth, think. Make sure alam mo yung isyu and you can talk about it. Hindi mo ito balwarte,” he quipped.
"So, yung statement nitong si Regine Velasquez, for me, is something na nakisawsaw, nakiangkas sa isyu na wala naman talagang alam. Mas maganda siguro pag ang isang indibidwal nagsalita, let it be someone expert in the field,” he added.
Because of this, Ogie responded that the award-winning anchor should focus on him, not on his wife, to be fair.
However, Ben insisted in his reply that Regine should not meddle with the controversy and that she should just be focused on her showbiz career.
After these series of tweets, Ogie ended the conversation by expressing gratitude to the journalist for giving a sincere advice.
He said: "Thank you for your reply and your sincere advice. I respect your view on these matters also. God bless you always.”
