MANILA, Philippines – Lea Salonga took to Twitter on Monday, June 22 to explain a Facebook post which made her trend on social media last week.
In a June 15 Facebook post, the singer wrote: “Dear Pilipinas, p***** ina, ang hirap mong mahalin.” (Dear Philippines, f**k, you’re hard to love.)
Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo said that if there was any resentment against the Philippines, it would not be public because there would be many interpretations here.
It is not a good example that a celebrity is not respecting the country in which it was born and where it grew up.
“Ang advise natin kay Miss Lea, cool ka lang. Kung ano man ang sama ng loob mo, huwag mong isapubliko lalo kung laban sa sarili mong bansa kung saan ka ipinanganak, kung saan ka kumikita, kung saan ka kinikilala, hindi magandang ganyan,”ani Panelo.
“Parang disrespect yun sa bansa mo. Walang specific na kaso,”
