ABS-CBN actress Liza Soberano, her fellow Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin and GMA7 TV host Raymond Guttierez were condemned for their offensive behavior as they tweeted some harsh and insulting comments on Manny Pacquiao’s opponent Floyd Mayweather Jr.. These so-called sexist and racist tweets drew anger from many netizens.
Angel Locsin jokingly tweeted that the fight wasn’t fair because we didn’t now whether Mayweather already sustained a black eye. Others believe that the actress was poking fun at the boxer’s skin color which they consider as a mild case of “racism”.
TV host Raymond Guttierez expressed his revulsion towards the fight by tweeting some lines which others think are too obscene.
At the same time, Forevermore actress Liza Soberano vented out her displeasure by tweeting another tactless comments. Annoyed by Mayweather’s hugging-while-fighting tactic, she then ended up mocking the American boxer.
The two showbiz personalities then deleted their tweets a few moments after they learned that it angered a number of netizens. Liza also issued an apology in relation with the said incident.
On the other hand, Angel continued to defend herself by responding to those who consider her “racist”.
