Regine Velasquez may be the “Queen” of song but she is no queen when it comes to “thought leadership”

Regine Velasquez’s fans need not feel offended since it is not her singing abilities that is being questioned. They should stick to the issues and use facts in their arguments instead of mentioning her celebrity status. I mean why do they keep mentioning she is “the queen” of singing?

What does being a good singer have to do with one’s commentary on politics, for that matter? The fact is, Regine made several false claims in her now-famous tweet

1) Implying Locsin is not very smart. (Guess again.)

2) Claiming that Scarborough shoal is part of Philippine territory. (It isn’t. Ownership is still being disputed. China doesn’t own it either.)

3) Insisting that she is a “simple” person. (She isnt. She is a celebrity.)

Both Regine’s fans and the Yellow community who now rally around her tweet should stick to the facts of the matter.
