Derek Ramsay went viral after a video of him taken at his house was uploaded on Instagram by his wife, Ellen Adarna. The said video shows Derek displaying a Philippine flag on his terrace facing his neighbor’s house, which displays a Chinese greeting to celebrate the New Year.
In the video, Ellen can be heard laughing while Derek was displaying the Philippine flag and she also posted the caption “#proudpinoy Patriotic.”
Although netizens noted that there is nothing wrong with displaying the Philippine flag, some of them wondered whether Derek displayed the flag as a reaction to his neighbor’s Chinese greeting. For this reason, Filipino-Chinese model and host Richard Juan aired his disappointment over the viral video.
Richard believes that Derek’s gesture with the flag is an example of an action that makes Chinoys feel unwelcome in the Philippines. Some people agreed with Richard and questioned Derek’s motive in the video while others said there was nothing wrong with what Derek did and that Chinoys are treated well in the country.

“The sad truth is, despite HUNDREDS OF YEARS of history in the Philippines, it’s the unwelcoming actions like this that makes us Chinoys feel like we STILL don’t belong here.#ProudChinoy,” Richard tweeted.
Derek Ramsay is one of the most sought-after leading men in the Philippines. He starred in many critically-acclaimed films such as "No Other Woman" and "English Only, Please.” Derek’s celebrity ex-girlfriends include Angelica Panganiban, Solenn Heussaff, Cristine Reyes, Joanne Villablanca, and Andrea Torres. He is now married to Ellen Adarna.
Derek’s cheek became slightly swollen after getting hit by Elias Modesto’s karate kick. In a video he uploaded on social media, the actor’s face showed pain as he jokingly kept telling Elias that the boy hurt him. Earlier, Derek was teasing Elias that he’s a monster looking for food and that he smells a little boy underneath the sheets. When the actor yanked the sheets, Elias suddenly let out a playful kick, hitting Derek in his right cheek.
The loving way that Derek treats his stepson Elias has been the subject of praise from both netizens and showbiz personalities. One example is Lolit Solis who penned a commentary on Derek’s close relationship with Elias, the son of his partner Ellen Adarna from her previous relationship. She commended Derek and Ellen for bringing Elias on their trips abroad even if it is not easy to care for a child during vacations. The entertainment columnist also praised Derek for being a great stepfather and for accepting Ellen’s situation. However, Lolit expressed her wish for Derek and Ellen to have their first child together as a couple.
