Ryan Bang took to Twitter on Sunday, March 29, to make an apology on his now-deleted tweet about South Korean singer-rapper Irene, a member of the Korean pop girl group Red Velvet.

It could be recalled that on Instagram, the Korean comedian and host was seen posting comments on the Red Velvet member’s live stream in Tagalog, with the group’s Filipino fans noticing and posting screenshots on Twitter.

Ryan retweeted one of the tweets featuring the screenshots of the live stream wherein he commented the name of the cake bar brand he is currently endorsing.
 
“Hahahahahahaha Masarap talaga,” he replied to the tweet, which caused an outcry of tweets among Red Velvet fans, saying his tweet about the Korean singer had a sexual meaning behind it.

On the other hand, some netizens defended Ryan for his actions, saying he was referring to his cake brand when he posted his now-deleted tweet, and not to Irene.

After facing backlash online, the It’s Showtime regular posted a set of tweets, firstly clarifying that he had no other meaning in his deleted tweet.

“At nagcomment po ako sa live kanina kasi sobra ko siyang idol kasi [lalo] na sa personal sobrang bait po siya! Kaya please wag niyo po bigiyan ng iba pang meaning! Salamat po!” Ryan added.

In another tweet, he expressed his sadness over the people who gave another meaning towards his tweet.

“Sobra pong bait niya sa akin at noong nagkausap ko siya naramdaman ko mahal niya ang Philippines kaya po ako naging isang fan niya! Kaya sana wag niyo po isipin ibang meaning kasi wala po talaga!” he tweeted.

By Monday, March 30, Ryan tweeted out an apology to people who took offense over what he said.

“I just want to say that there was no intent on my part to offend anyone, but if i did, i am truly very sorry. Humihingi po ako ng pasensya sa lahat. Maraming salamat po! Please keep safe and healthy everyone!” he said.

Apart from It’s Showtime, Ryan is also a regular cast member in the gag show Banana Sundae. He rose to fame when he placed first runner-up in the reality show Pinoy Big Brother in its Teen Clash 2010 edition.
