Ogie to Ben Tulfo: “I ask that you focus on me”

Ogie Alcasid has stepped in to defend his wife Regine after Ben Tulfo “maligned” her in a Facebook live video.

It all started when Velasquez called out Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. for his statement about the alleged collection of endangered giant clams by Chinese vessels in Scarborough Shoal.

Tulfo gave Velasquez his unsolicited advice that the singer should think before talking.

“Ang mensahe ko sa ‘yo, Regine Velasquez, next time you open your mouth, think. Make sure na may laman ang utak mo.” he said in the Facebook livestream on Sunday.

“Wala naman talagang kaalaman sa pagdating sa sinasabing kanilang mga pananaw pagdating sa foreign affairs… Ano bang alam nitong si Regine Velasquez other than kumanta lamang?” Tulfo added.

Following the video, Alcasid took to Twitter to tell Tulfo to shoot his tirades towards him instead of his wife.

“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,” Alcasid said in a tweet Wednesday.

Tulfo then replied to the tweet saying that he has no intentions to hurt anyone. Instead, he just wanted to tell Velasquez to focus on her career and no longer meddle on foreign relations and other issues.

“I am not here to hurt anyone. I am talking with sincerity and truthfulness. This is a serious issue. Tell your wife to focus on her career. Please, not Foreign relations and issues. I do respect you and your wife,” Tulfo said.

Alcasid then thanked Tulfo for his reply.

“Thank you for your reply and your sincere advice. I respect your view on these matters also. God bless always,” Alcasid said.
