Regine considers quitting Twitter due to bashings of her, Ogie’s daughter
Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez was too disheartened over a basher who attacked husband Ogie Alcasid’s eldest daughter Leila on social media.
Leila Alcasid was victimized by harsh remarks of a netizen who fronted as Velasquez’ fan while referring to the songbird as “gullible” for taking care of her husband’s eldest.
The bashing netizen also shouted out an unsolicited advice to the songbird, asking her to stop being “too kind” as she is being abused by no less than her husband and his daughter.
Ogie’s daughter is presently in the country to study and spend time with her father.
“Leche ka @leilaalcasid. Manang mana ka sa tatay mo. Susko mga pabigat pabibo at mapagsamantala. Konting hiya din pag may time,” said the first tweet of a netizen who uses the handle @spiglao on Twitter.
([Expletive] @leilaalcasid. You’re just like your father. You are all a burden, know-it-all, you take advantage. You should be ashamed.”)
What really infuriated the songbird was yet another comment referring to her acting as a personal assistant to Leila.
“The nerve of Regine para pumayag ng ganyan. Susko tanga tanga sorry sa term pero totoo kasi hahahahahahaha,” said another post.
(“The nerve of Regine to allow this. [Expletive] It’s so stupid, sorry for the term but it’s true [laughter].”)
Velasquez feels too hurt about the comments and immediately said sorry to her stepdaughter.
The songbird however is now entertaining the option of making her social media accounts private, after such social assault.
“Parang ayaw ko na mag-[Twitter]. Sama lang ng loob nakukuha ko rito. But still God bless pa rin sa inyo,” she said.
(“I feel like I don’t want to be in Twitter anymore. All I get from it is resentment. But still, God bless you.”)
Sympathizers and fans of Velasquez, however, were quick to defend the singer against the bashings.
Leila is Ogie Alcasid’s daughter with former wife, Miss Australia Michelle van Eimeren.
