MANILA, Philippines -- Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez defended her son against cyber bullies.

On Wednesday, Velasquez lashed out against some netizens who have launched tirades against her infant son Nathaniel.

The singer's anger stemmed from a negative comment she read after she posted a picture of her son.

"Ok lang sa ken laitin nyo ko sabihin nyo pangit, mataba, baboy, baka at kung ano ano pa. Okay lang 'yan sa kin pero wag naman si Nate........Kung pangit ang paningin nyo sa kanya, okay lang din 'yun pero sana wag nyo na ilathala pa.......Alam nyo marami nanaman ang namimintas sa kin. Hindi ako pumapatol. Kaya lang nong si Nate na, parang ang hirap naman palampasin.......Bilang nanay syempre proud ako picture-picturan 'yung anak ko. Feeling ko ang gwapo syempre anak ko eh......Pasensya na kayo naglabas lang ng sama ng loob gayun paman God Bless pa ren sayo sana maging masaya ka sa buhay mo. Yun lang;-)," Velasquez tweeted.

Velasquez who's usually not sensitive to criticisms, said it's really different when her child is the one being ridiculed.

"Thank you guys okay na ko nahimasmasan na ko. Hindi naman talaga ako pumapatol eh. Hindi ren kasi ako marunong pumatol...... Kaya lang si Nate kasi. I guess kasalanan ko ren nilabas ko 'yung pictures nya. Hay! Gaya nga ng sinabi ko God Bless at sana masaya sya:-)."

Nate, or Nathaniel James, is Velasquez's baby with husband Ogie Alcasid.

The baby was born on November 8 last year.
