Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro “Teddy Boy” Locsin Jr. took to social media to defend Angel Locsin. 

This comes after the Kapamilya star was criticized over the death of a 67-year-old man named Rolando Dela Cruz at a community pantry she organized.

On Twitter, Teddy Locsin said there is no need for Angel to ask for forgiveness as it wasn’t her fault that she couldn’t feed them on time. 

“No forgiveness needed; at least she tried to feed them; one was so starved and weak she couldn’t feed him in time,” he said in a tweet.

Teddy went on to say that Angel should not be blamed for what happened to Dela Cruz as she was just feeding the hungry. 

“Blame those who don’t do what she and others like her — like my friends from the very start of the pandemic — are trying to do: feed the hungry and not their egos,” he added. 

In a separate tweet, the former TV anchor and commentator lauded Angel for her intentions but told her to keep away from political advisers. 

“You meant well. Road to hell is not paved w/ good intentions; that’s the excuse of animals whose intentions are always bad but know the road to hell well because they came from there. But keep away from Filipino political advisers; they are born stupid. Same advice for my side,” he stated. 

Angel Locsin has since apologized for the death of Rolando Dela Cruz, saying she will apologize for the incident for the rest of her life. Dela Cruz said was rushed to the hospital but was later declared dead on arrival.
