Here's the series of Twitter posts from the Kapamilya star and her replies to critics:
Lugi naman kasi tayo eh.. hindi natin makita kung may black eye na si mayweather.. #MannyvsMayweather— Angel Locsin (@143redangel) May 3, 2015
@143redangel You're either ignorant of the oppression the black community has faced through history or just lack empathy.— Lars (@TheTrilipush) May 3, 2015
@143redangel and you obviously referenced Mayweather's skin color in ridicule. It's all about context. Huwag mo kaming gawing tanga.— Lars (@TheTrilipush) May 3, 2015
All respect for Angel Locsin the actress. But Angel Locsin the person, hmmm not anymore. pic.twitter.com/aQR4OjFQIQ— Ina Francis (@Balooogggssssss) May 3, 2015
Despite the backlash, Angel Locsin remained defiant insisting that there was nothing wrong with her tweet, which was tagged as racist.
Kung fair ang skin at sinabihan ko ng "lugi tayo at hindi makita ang an-an nya sa sobrang puti", racist comment rin? Baka kayo ang may issue— Angel Locsin (@143redangel) May 3, 2015
Sorry sa harsh tweets✌️mahirap, pero I'll try to move on na!😂 proud of you Manny! Congratulations to Mayweather! He's a good strategist👍— Angel Locsin (@143redangel) May 3, 2015
