AlDub fans hit Lea Salonga over 'kababawan' tweet

MANILA, Philippines - It was a case of digital misunderstanding and unfortunate coincidence.

Lea Salonga was slammed by fans of Alden Richards and Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza after she posted a tweet that some thought was a criticism against the popular "Eat Bulaga" love team. In a tweet on Saturday, the singer and Broadway star said:

The tweet attracted the attention of netizens, believing her opinion was about Aldub. Lea's tweet was posted a few hours after "Eat Bulaga's" Kalyeserye segment, which featured the second date of Alden and Yaya Dub.

A number of celebrities even took to social media to express their opinion about Lea's post, including TV director Rico Gutierrez and Joey Reyes.

Even "Eat Bulaga" co-host Joey de Loen posted a tweet that referenced "kababawan," although he didn't specify if his post was a reaction to Lea's.

But in succeeding posts, Lea explained the tweet was not about AlDub. In replies to her followers, the singer-actress even said she's not yet "latched on to" the new TV love team.
