Robi Domingo read the tweets and direct messages about him, even the controversial ones, in his latest vlog on his YouTube channel.
"Sometimes in life, you make mistakes. And it's okay. What is important is for you to learn from those moments as you get back up in order for you to become a better individual. Let me share with you some of the learnings I've had in this vlog when I had some major issues before as I read some tweets and DMs," his vlog description reads.
Among the many messages he read was a comment criticizing his hosting when he met SB19 for the first time on iWant ASAP.
The message from the netizen said, "I watched the interview of SB19 on ASAP and the hosts were very unprofessional, especially Robi Domingo. Making unnecessary jokes that aren't really funny. He kept on interrupting and laughing at the boys while they were talking. Disrespectful much? Mga 'di marunong mag-host."
To address the issue, Robi clarified that he never intended to offend the group and that he just wanted to make them feel at home during that time.
“When SB19 went to iWant ASAP for the first time, honestly hindi ako dapat magho-host non. Pumunta lang ako sa stage because I've been hearing lots of things about them kasi nga iba ‘yung galaw nila eh. So when I've got on stage, kulitan lang, because I want them to feel at home and honestly to the people inside the studio they were fine. The SB19 fans, na ngayon ay tawag na ay A’TIN, we're happy with the result of the program. The boys were okay naman. I asked them, ‘Are you guys fine?’ [They said] ‘Oo kuya Robi.’ Tawa sila nang tawa,” Robi remarked.
The Kapamilya host further explained, “In all honesty I did not mean to offend the boys. After that meet up we saw each other again for a certain pictorial for a show. Backstage I went to them, I apologized [and said], ‘Just in case I've hurt your feelings patawarin niyo ako that's not my intention.’ [They said], ‘Ano ka ba kuya Robi we get it, we get it. Hindi naman kami na-offend.’ I think na klaro na lahat ng issues diyan and para mas maklaro pa I think I’m a member of SB19 now. I am their Bei-Bi. We're friends now.”
