Lalaki sa lalaki! Ogie Alcasid tells Ben Tulfo to face him after insulting Regine Velasquez
Singer and songwriter Ogie Alcasid has offered to be the punching bag of broadcaster Ben Tulfo after he insulted the artist’s wife, Regine Velasquez, for speaking on China’s clam poaching in the West Philippine Sea.
In a tweet posted Wednesday (April 24), Alcasid told Tulfo to focus on him instead of Velasquez.
“Sir @bitagbentulfo . I offer my cheek to you. After you have maligned my wife I ask that you focus on me. She is after all a lady. God bless you sir,” the singer said.
In a Facebook Live video, Tulfo told Velasquez to refrain from commenting on foreign affairs issues because she is not an expert on the subject.
He added that the singer should focus on her career instead of speaking up on issues she might not be well versed on.
Velasquez earlier expressed her dismay at Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. through Twitter for downplaying China’s poaching of clams in the West Philippine Sea.
Sir @bitagbentulfo . I offer my cheek to you. After you have maligned my wife I ask that you focus on me. She is after all a lady. God bless you sir.
