Robin Padilla drew flak after the intense confrontation between him and the Korean PGT contestant

Last Saturday, netizens quickly reacted to the intense confrontation of Robin Padilla and Kim Jiwan, a 20-year old Korean contestant of Pilipinas Got Talent. They slammed the veteran actor for forcing the Korean contestant to speak Filipino during the audition. The incident happened when the contestant asked Padilla if he could participate in his magic tricks as part of the talent that he will be showcasing in the said contest. But the actor declined, saying the Korean should speak the local language first.

“Iho, Pilipinas Got Talent. Magtagalog ka kasi magmumukha kaming katawa-tawa kung mag e-English kami dito para sa’yo. Pilipinas Got Talent. Magtagalog ka, iho,” Robin Padilla said.
Luckily, one of the judges, actress Angel Locsin, came to rescue the Korean contestant. With her help, the Korean was able to speak a bit of the local language. Netizens quickly showed their disappointments online on Robin Padilla’s treatment toward the Korean contestant, calling him “rude”, “racist”, etc. The actor defended himself against the criticisms, clarifying that he was only giving a fatherly advice to the contestant which he also explained when he made amends with the contestant and eventually gave him a hug.
“Pasensya ka na anak ha, anak na rin kita. Nadisiplina ka lang ng tatay mo. ‘Yun na lang ang isipin mo. Nadisiplina ka ng tatay mong Pilipino,” Padilla said.
The PGT judge also posted on his Instagram account the same day, giving words of encouragement about loving our own country.
