Host Tim Yap has been gaining hateful comments from fans of the Korean group “Momoland” after he was dubbed as “disrespectful” as he hosted the group’s fan meeting event in Manila.
On his Twitter account, Tim released a statement, apologizing to “Momoland” fans who might have misconstrued his comments during the event as he was heard making a “sira ulo” and “naaaning-aning” remarks to two of the group’s members.

He wrote: “I apologize for how my comments might have affected Momoland fans. In the venue, you could feel how much fun we were all having, including the members of the group. Everything that we said in English and Filipino was immediately translated to Korean.
I understand that my comment could have been misconstrued when played on a short clip from all that had happened in the show, but I must let you know that there was no malice or any negative intention from my part.”
