Regine Velasquez Slams Instagram Follower To Defend Husband Ogie AlcasidCelebrities are also human. They could get to a saturation point, wherein they would blow off and retaliate from people who try to hurt them. Such was the case when Regine Velasquez slammed one of her Instagram followers just to defend her husband Ogie Alcasid from the fan’s criticisms.
Velasquez was obviously trying to keep her cool when the follower, a certain @jessiementiola slammed him for allegedly being a career liability to her idol. Alcasid has been drawing some flak from numerous fans who disagree with his recent decision to leave GMA-7 and move to TV5.
That time, there was still no clear indication that Alcasid would finally jump into another fence. But this week, signs have been clearer that he is indeed becoming a Kapatid from being a Kapuso for more than 18 years.
Tried her patience
At first, the irritated fan said she had not approved Alcasid being Velasquez’s husband, to begin with. She alleged that Alcasid has become a liability to his wife’s more successful career. In her last posts, the fan was threatening Velasquez not to follow her husband if she does not want to lose her fans.
Velasquez seemed to have finally reached her toleration limit. She finally responded to the series of criticisms with a single but long Instagram post, directed to @jessiementiola. It was a surprising reply because she sounded annoyed and pissed off.
The gist of her message was that she was asking the fan not to be too harsh to Alcasid. She also reiterated how she was seriously hurt by the strong and painful words that were directed towards him.
On her post that followed, she shared a picture of Alcasid with some people who reside in Lupang Pangako. Velasquez tried to tell that her husband is a loving and compassionate citizen who shares blessings to the less fortunate fellowmen. As her words put it, “How can I not love him?”
After a few hours, Velasquez seemed to have finally realized her blunder. She eventually asked her social media followers for forgiveness for her outpouring of emotions. But she was not yet ready to move on. She further justified her reaction to the harsh words of a follower. She ended the series of posts with a Biblical verse.
Following megastar’s steps
Velasquez was not the only famous celebrity who has poured emotions over social networks. Months ago, Sharon Cuneta made news when she slammed some of her Twitter followers, who insistently criticized and annoyed her for all her career decisions, particularly her transfer from ABS-CBN to TV5.
Many people were surprised at how Cuneta reacted to her Twitter bashers. She was equally harsh and impolite especially when the online bullies tried to make insinuations against her family and children. She drew criticisms from movie experts, who did not like the way she stooped to bashers’ levels. She has decided to go inactive in the social media after that. But she said she would never be sorry for her actions to defend herself and her family.
