Twitter has become everybody’s online diary where they share each and every activity they have in line throughout the day. It is also where people post their opinions on certain issues concerning different matters.
Yesterday, another celebrity has become controversial on twitter. TV host-actress, Valerie Conception, created a huge noise on the social networking site. It was because of her posts about PNoy partying with PSG.
On her first post, she said: “I’m on my way to Malacañang..ü Will sing 2 songs there.. Tapos didiretso na ako sa World Trade Center after.. See you there! Booth 814″
It was followed by another post: “I’m here na sa Malacañang for the PSG Christmas Party..ü Ms. Jessa Zaragosa is here also.. 3 kanta pala ako dto.. Akala ko 2 lng..”
And with another one: “Done w/ work.. Tnx for having me.. It was nice to see Pres. P-Noy laughing at my jokes & enjoying my performance..ü #Malacañang #PSGNight”
Netizens of PNoy reacted violently on the said post. They were saying that the president is very insensitive to the condition of our fellow citizens in Mindanao who are devastated by Typhoon Sendong. They can’t believe how the president can afford to attend parties while 600 Filipinos died on the said calamity.
When Valerie knew about the buzz her tweets created, he immediately deleted her posts and released a clarification statement on the same twitter account.
“I just want to clarify that I was invited to perform at Malacañang’s Christmas Party for their employees with their husbands/wives and kids. Yes, the President attended the gathering. I do not see anything wrong with that since its his obligation and responsibility being the head of Malacañang to be present and show his support for his hardworking employees and their respective families. But I believe that it doesn’t mean that the president is not thinking of ways to help our kababayan(s) in Mindanao. It doesn’t mean that the president is disregarding the plight of our fellow Filipinos. Let’s not be too quick to judge. But if I, in any way, offended you guys and sounded insensitive, I am very sorry. It wasn’t my intention to do either. I can’t imagine how difficult life is for the people affected in Mindanao and how difficult it is to be the president of the Philippines at this moment. Once again, I am very sorry for all those people I have offended. May God bless us all.”
