Singer Regine Velasquez has called out Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. for downplaying China’s extraction of clams in the Scarborough Shoal, which is part of the West Philippine Sea.

Asia’s Songbird expressed dismay at Locsin after he tweeted on April 16 that he would not be a “clam defender.”

I am not going down in history as a clam defender, okay? It’s a complaint; we’re looking into it; but these are just f*cking food,” he said in response to a tweet of the link to website Food Evolution’s article on clam poaching.

“No one goes to war for clams (maybe Oysters of Locquemariaquer) but they just happen to be OUR food,” he added.

In response to Locsin’s tweet, Velasquez said: “Ang akala ko pa naman matalino ka. Ako ay simpling tao lamang na may simpleng pagiisip. These people are invading our territory they are not just taking food sinistral nila ang ating karagatan!!!!”

When Locsin said Scarborough Shoal wasn’t part of the Philippine territory but just its Exclusive Economic Zone, the singer shot back: “TRESPASS, ENCROACH, INFRINGE, INVADE mean to make inroads upon the property, territory, or rights of another. TRESPASS implies an unwarranted or unlawful intrusion. hunters trespassing on farmland ENCROACH suggests gradual or stealthy entrance upon another’s territory.”
