- Ben Tulfo became one of the much-talked-about topics on social media
- This is after he maligned veteran singer Regine Velasquez
- The TV5 anchor received heavy backlash from the supporters of the singer
TV5 anchor Ben Tulfo was criticized heavily on social media due to his strong statements against celebrity couple Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid.
KAMI learned that that the three prominent personalities got involved in a heated exchange of arguments after the “Asia’s Songbird” tweeted against Teddy Locsin, Jr., the secretary of Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
The veteran Kapamilya singer questioned the intelligence of the said government official due to his words about the dispute in Panatag Shoal.
Ben immediately lambasted the “Idol Philippines” judge and he claimed that Regine should shut her mouth up because she does not know anything about the issue.
The broadcast-journalist also expressed that the singer must just focus on her career and that she should think before she talks.
“Next time you open your mouth, think. Make sure na may laman ang utak mo. Make sure alam mo ‘yung isyu and you can talk about it,” he stated.
“Hindi mo ito balwarte. ‘Yung kaalaman mo, itago mo na lang. Gawin mo na lang, una, kung paano ka manumbalik sa publiko na kilala ka pa The Songbird of Asia. Hehehe. Ano ba’ng alam nitong si Regine Velasquez other than kumanta lamang?” he added.
To defend his wife, Ogie responded to the statements of Ben as he stressed that the said journalist just maligned a lady.
However, the TV5 media personality clarified that he did not mean to hurt anybody but he insisted that the OPM Icon should tell his wife to not meddle with the issue.
Here are the comments of netizens:
