MANILA, Philippines — Host and vlogger Alex Gonzaga aired her side after a netizen alleged that she cut queue at the airport’s immigration.

A netizen reposted on Twitter a screenshot of supposedly a friend’s Facebook status, claiming Gonzaga tried to cut the immigration line.


“Alex Gonzaga just tried to cut me at the immigration queue. What’s with entitled Filipino celebrities lol,” the Facebook status read.

Gonzaga responded Monday and explained a new counter opened up to form a new line for senior citizens like her parents.


“Fyi: nagbukas ng new counter yung immigration, my mom and dad (senior citizens) were invited to form a new line, we thought she was with the elders infront of us coz sila na ang queue. Nagpaalam pa kami pumayag sila. Mommy ko ang nauna bigla nya sinabi sya daw dapat, we let her,” Gonzaga said.

Gonzaga also said they were not in a hurry and pointed out her companions were senior citizens, thumbing down the “entitled” comment of the netizen.

“When we were lining up fyi may new tickets na kami. Delayed pa new flight namin 3PM so why would we be in a hurry? 11am kami dumating. You weren’t there kaya wag ka magsalita as if alam mo. Kasama ko senior citizens, di kami pa-entitled. Nung nagsabi ‘friend’ mo pinauna namin sya,” she said.

Gonzaga said she was saddened that it had to be blown out of proportion, but remained positive despite the issue.

“I wish i could talk to the lady who was infront of us in the immigration. She knew what happened. My mom was very polite and even asked her if she could go through the other counter. When she was about to cross the yellow lane the lady cut my mom and said siya dapat,” she said.

“My mom let her pass. There was no issue. Nakakalungkot kailangan nya palakihin. Anyway, i said my piece. Off to positivity and enjoy my trip,” she added. /muf
