DJ Mo Twister clarified why he called Kaye Abad the “ugly version of Iza Calzado,” saying he and the “Tabing Ilog” actress were just enjoying a light moment together when he made that remark several years ago.

The now-US-based celebrity host felt compelled to speak after Abad’s recent interview with Boy Abunda where she recalled their “ugly-version” conversation sometime in the ’90s, which now became viral.


DJ Mo took to Instagram to share some parts of his new interview with Abad as they talked about the old moment between them that recently resurfaced, clarifying the origin of his “ugly version” remark as he continued to receive hate messages because of it.


“I will only comment on this issue once. I have been receiving hate messages all week long about what I said regarding Kaye Abad, stemming from when I called her ugly. It’s been on the news and in tabloids online, and I just need to fix this. Let’s put this ugliness behind us,” he wrote in his caption.

In the videos that he shared, DJ Mo recalled that they were doing a “game” at the time when the actress asked him whose celebrity was the ugly version of her. 

“What happened was that we were doing the ugly version of which celebrity. Diba binanggit ko, I’m the ugly version of Matt Damon, tapos nagtext ka sakin,” he shared.

“Nagtext ako sayo, sabi ko, ‘Ako Mo, sinong ugly version ako’ It was back in the 1990s, pa ‘to,” continued Abad. 

“Wow. You remembered that. Did I hurt you?” asked DJ Mo.


“No. Not at all. Actually, naflatter pa nga ako. I really find Iza very pretty. So nung sinabi mo ugly version ka ni Iza Calzado. Sabi ko, ‘Oh wow. I’ll accept that,” responded the “Tabing Ilog” actress.

Abad then shared that Iza Calzado reached out to her after her interview made the rounds online. 

“She actually messaged me. She told me that she heard about my Tito Boy Abunda interview and what Mo said. [Sabi niya], ‘First of all, thank you for the kind words, but then ‘wag ko daw tanggapin na sinabi mo na ugly version niya ako.’” shared Abad. 

DJ Mo affirmed that it wasn’t his intention to make Abad feel ugly, and he’s glad that they are friends to this day. 

“I’m glad that you’re on the show so we can clear the air here that we’re not fighting. We’re okay. Everything is fine. I didn’t really mean it when I called you ugly. I should have just said discount. I should have been better,” he said. 

In Abad’s previous interview on “Fast Talk,” Boy Abunda asked her, “If you were to look like someone, who comes to mind first?” to which she replied, “Iza Calzado.”
