Actress-host-singer Alex Gonzaga has defended herself from accusation that she and her parents had cut in line at airport immigration.
On Twitter, the 31-year-old social media influencer reposted a tweet that claimed she (Alex) tried to cut in line.
“Alex Gonzaga just tried to cut me at the immigration queue. What’s with entitled Filipino celebrities lol, ” the tweet read.
Alex gave her side of the story.
“Fyi: nagbukas ng new counter yung immigration, my mom and dad (senior citizens) were invited to form a new line, we thought she was with the elders in front of us coz sila na ang queue. Nagpaalam pa kami pumayag sila. Mommy ko ang nauna bigla nya sinabi sya daw dapat, we let her,” she wrote.
Alex told her accuser “you weren’t there.”
“Kasama ko senior citizens, di kami pa-entitled. Nung nagsabi ‘friend’ mo pinauna namin sya,” she pointed out.
“I wish I could talk to the lady who was in front of us in the immigration. She knew what happened. My mom was very polite and even asked her if she could go through the other counter. When she was about to cross the yellow lane the lady cut my mom and said siya dapat,” she shared. “My mom let her pass. There was no issue. Nakakalungkot kailangan nya palakihin. Anyway, I said my piece. Off to positivity and enjoy my trip.”
Alex was en route to Tokyo to attend the Youtube Creator Summit 2019.
