Actress-television host Mariel Rodriguez has defended her husband action star Robin Padilla who scolded a foreigner for not speaking in Pilipino when he auditioned on the reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent” on ABS CBN recently.
Mariel also slammed netizens who dragged her daughter Isabelle into the controversy. Her full post on Instagram read:
“Our cable was down over the weekend and I have been so busy taking care of my baby that I only had the chance to watch the clip of PGT today. In my opinion Robin was being true to himself;
“Si Robin magpapakamatay yan para sa Pilipinas… si Robin ibibigay niya buhay niya para sa mga katutubo, sa mga kapatid… sa mga Pilipino. Ganun si Robin;
“It is very hard to understand his passion when it comes to his love for the country… pero pagkatapos ng pagibig niya sa Allah, susunod ang pag-ibig parasa bayan, more than family more than self more than anything (except God) pinakamahal ni Robin ang Pilipinas;
“If you watch the whole clip he was being a very fair judge when it came to the talent of the korean contestant. He humbled himself and said “pasensya ka na” even added “isipin mo na lang na tataymo ako sa Pilipinas at napagsabihan ka ng tatay mo” so ano ba ang ikinakagalit niyong lahat?;
“Dinamay niyo pa yung anakkong inosente! Okay lang na mag labas kayo ng mga opinion niyo no problem kasi opinion niyo yan. Pero para idamay ang anak ko na walang kasalanan sa mundongito!;
“Below the belt. no mother should ever receive ill wishes for her child no matter what the circumstances are. I learned that in Islam it is all about your INTENTIONS… and Robin did not have any intention to cause anyone pain but you guys sending hate our way even including my child is purely intentional so goodlucksa inyo in your afterlife;
“While you guys are bashing away Robin is busy rebuilding Marawi. People with REAL PROBLEMS! And no your bad comments are not welcome on my page. To my husband… we stand by you 100%” said Mariel on Instagram.
