MANILA -- Comedienne Ai Ai delas defended veteran actress Vilma Santos, who has been criticized on social media for her spelling mistakes.
Netizens basked Santos after host-actress Kris Aquino posted a photo of a gift and accompanying dedication card she received from the Batangas governor.
Delas Alas, a self-confessed Vilmanian, said that it would have been better if the note wasn't posted online.
"Minsan nagkakamali tayo or hindi naman kailangang gawing i-bash siya ng dahil lang doon. Unang-una, what for? Hindi naman sila ang sinulatan. Pangalawa, parang di naman makakaunlad sa bansa natin yung pagsusulat niya," the comedienne said.
"Sana next time, hindi na lang (i-post). Minsan kapag idol mo ang tao ay proteksyonan mo na lang," delas Alas added.
