  • Shantal Quizon deactivated her Twitter account
  • She earned immense criticism online after making her controversial posts
  • Some celebrities voiced out their reaction about the controversy

Aspiring singer Shantal Cuizon has deactivated her Twitter account after making a public apology on It’s Showtime last August 31, Saturday.

She was heavily criticized on the internet after she wrote the tweet “composer ka lang” aimed at songwriter Louie Ocampo, the head judge at the time, who almost had her eliminated from the Tawag ng Tanghalan contest following her performance on August 30, Friday.

She also exclaimed the word “hustisya” in her now deleted tweet claiming that she was judged unfairly.

Upon airing her controversial tweets, many netizens criticized and lectured Shantal on Twitter.

Celebrities like Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Dulce, and Vice Ganda also aired their reaction to the controversial tweets which went viral on the internet.

While being interviewed by It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda, Shantal apologized on air and admitted that she made a mistake. She also thanked the composer though he was not part of the panel the day of her last performance.

“Gusto ko pong mag-public apology kay sir Louie Ocampo. Thank you po kasi kahit ano po iyong nararamdaman ninyo ay hindi niyo pa rin ako gi-nong.

“Nagsama-sama lang po yung pagod, puyat, stress and pressure sa iba’t ibang tao. Alam ko pong mali yung nagawa ko. Kaya po nagso-sorry ako kay Sir Louie,” Shantal said.

She was also schooled by Vice Ganda who disagreed with her post implying that the semifinals of the contest were rigged from the start.

Vice Ganda told her: “Huwag ninyo sanang maramdaman na dinadaya kayo ng show na ito at may isang hurado na mandadaya sa inyo at magbibigay ng injustice.”

“Kung wala ang mga composer, wala kayong aawitin,” Vice said.

Shantal then added: “Lahat po ng pagkakamali, aminin mo lang, kasi wala namang pagkakamali na naitatago, lahat kailangan aminin at may dapat matutunan.”

“At may mga pagkakamaling hindi nakaka-proud,” Vice replied.

Shantal failed to make it to the grand finals while Violeta Bayawa and Julius Cawaling won their spots as grand finalists.

The Tawag ng Tanghalan grand finals is scheduled for this September.
