Ben Tulfo lashes at demands of DSWD’s Bautista: ‘Daig mo pa si Padre Damaso’
MANILA, Philippines — Radio broadcaster Ben Tulfo slammed Department of Social Welfare and Development (DWSD) Secretary Rolando Bautista for telling his brother Erwin to apologize on various media platforms as a way to prove his “sincerity.”
“Putres na “brotherhood”! ang KAKAPAL!” Ben said in a tweet on Saturday.
“Ayon sa kumag na OIC, mag-sorry daw sa lahat ng media outlet,” Ben added. “‘BUTAW’ na P300k kinakailangan para mahugasan ang kasalanan.”
Ben then told Bautista: “Tsong, daig mo pa si Padre Damaso at mga kolokoy na kauri mo! Nagpapatawa ka ba? #unfiltered”

Bautista ended his silence on Friday after Erwin publicly berated the DSWD secretary on his radio program for refusing to grant his request for an interview.
The DWSD secretary said that to prove Erwin’s “sincerity,” he has to post his apology on various newspapers, radio stations, as well as his social media platforms.
Bautista added that Erwin also has to donate P300,000 to select institutions.
Meanwhile, Erwin’s outburst has led him to lose police escorts assigned to him and his brothers. The Philippine National Police has also ordered Erwin to surrender his firearms, saying that his license to own and possess firearms already expired in May. (Editor: Jonathan P. Vicente)
