  • Jobert Sucaldito got flak on social media for his comments on Nadine Lustre.

Talent manager and radio host Jobert Sucaldito has finally apologized to Nadine Lustre after his insensitive comments.

In a statement, Wednesday, January 9, 2020, Sucaldito apologized to Lustre as well as others who were bothered by his remarks. He also apologized to his radio network DZMM for putting them in a bad light.

“I would like to apologize to Ms. Nadine Lustre and to those who got bothered by that sa aspetong ito. I am also apologizing to my radio network DZMM for putting them in discomfort because of this.”

Jobert’s apology came after the backlash he got on social media.

On Monday, January 6, in his radio show on DZMM titled Showbuzz, Jobert castigated Nadine over her IG story slamming Ricky Lo.

That particular IG story was Jobert and co-host Ahwel Paz’s topic on the show that day. During the discussion, Jobert made an insensitive comment pertaining to Nadine’s mental health.

“You are wrong here. Unang-una, gusto namin ipaalala sa inyo lahat na mga fans ng JaDine, hindi kami ang may pakulo ng lahat ng ito. Wala kaming alam sa mga buhay ng mga idol ‘nyo. Sila ang gawa-gawa ng kuwento na ang mali namin pinatulan namin kaya medyo lumaki at pinag-uusapan,” he said.

“‘Di ba ‘yun naman ang gusto nila? Kuno kuno may mga labas ang pwet, naka t-back pa doon sa building tapos may nakalagay na mga caption na parang gustong tumalon. Sana tumalon na lang, kung ganun lang din naman pala,” he added.

Netizens didn’t let that comment pass as they slammed the radio host, making it one of the trending topics on Twitter Philippines.

Prior to Jobert’s apology, ABS-CBN News through its head Ging Reyes issued a statement regarding Sucaldito’s remarks.

In the statement, Reyes said they are investigating the matter and will make sure their broadcasters are accountable for their actions and words on-air.

“We in ABS-CBN News take the issue of mental health very seriously. This was even the subject of a recent documentary that was produced. We are investigating reports that DZMM host Jobert Sucaldito uttered inappropriate and insensitive comments regarding actress Nadine Lustre’s state of mental health. Our journalists and other members of our team are accountable for their on-air statements.”
