Angelica Panganiban posts a controversial Twitter comment on Phil Younghusband


030311-angelica_main.jpgAngelica Panganiban got herself into a word war against a loyal fan of the Philippine Azkals. Upon hearing the news that Azkals football player Phil Younghusband is now doing an independent movie, On her Twitter account, Angelica posted on her Twitter account, “Si Phil may indie film. Akala ko ba football player sya? :( Lahat na lang artista na :( sad.”

After popularizing football to the masses here in the country, players of the Philippine Azkals instantly became hot commodities in local showbiz.

In her following tweets Angelica explained why she thinks it’s counterproductive for Phil and the rest of the Azkals to do showbiz and sports at the same time. “Sana lang mag focus muna silang lahat sa football. Para sa Pinas kasi yun. After na lang ng (tournament) mag artista. Sila Rooney ba gumagawa ng movie? I dont think so :) mukhang busy lang sila kaka practice para laging manalo :).”

One fan of the Azkals was disgusted over Angelica’s opinion and answered back, saying that the actress has no right to question whatever the Azkals choose to do regarding their career. The defensive fan even went on to say that Angelica and her boyfriend Derek Ramsay have not yet done anything to make the country proud, unlike the Azkals who are slowly bringing glory to the Philippines in football competition across the globe.

Angelica defended her stand by saying, “Ang kitid ng utak ng iba. ‘Di ko sinasabing ang gusto ko e ako lang ang artista. Kung gusto pala n’ya mag artista, sana di na sya nag football. Sana sa PBB (Pinoy Big Brother ) sya sumali :) di sa azkals. Baka mapuyat sya sa shooting di sya makalaro ng maayos. Gets nyo ba ko? O buong araw natin to issue?”

Ok na ha? Concerned citizen lang po ako. There’s no need to promote football, every night na sila nasa news. Magandang promotion na yun. Magaling mag football si Phil. Stick to that muna :) kakasimula pa lang natin sa football. Baka mas mag enjoy sya sa acting. Sayang.

Angelica is an active user of the social networking site Twitter, and most often her posts had become controversial. Last year she reacted on Gretchen Barretto’s flirty action toward Derek, but later on the issue was ironed out. Angelica also lashed out at those who gave nasty comments regarding her expensive earrings, which was a gift from Derek.
