Manila, Philippines - With the recent outcry in the social media for Broadcaster Erwin Tulfo’s attack on DSWD Secretary Rolando Joselito Bautista for rejecting to grant him an interview in his Radio Program “Tutok Tulfo” on Radyo Pilipinas.

Broadcaster Erwin Tulfo admitted that he was being excessive for lambasting the DSWD Secretary Rolando, but still not apologizing for his actions.

In an interview with CNN Philippines Friday (May 31), Tulfo acknowledged that his rant against the former general went too far.
“I ask for an apology sa excessive ranting, ‘yung sobrang pagmumura at galit ay medyo nasobrahan nga. five minutes of ranting, I think that was too much… Pero ‘yung pagpupuna sa kanya na wala siyang ginagawa, na kailangan magtrabaho siya, it will stay. Hindi ko babawiin iyun, because wala sa lahi namin na binabawi ng commentaries namin about trabaho mo,” Erwin said.
Tulfo became furious when Bautista refused to answer his phone for an interview during Tulfo’s radio show last Thursday (May 30).
The broadcaster cursed and insulted Bautista and threatened to slap and dunk his head into a toilet bowl when they meet.
Tulfo maintained that his criticism of Bautista had basis. He believes that as a government official you owe an explanation to the public.
“Yung ‘Wala kang silbi,’ that I will not take back because ayaw niyang sumagot. Mga tao nag-aantay. Eversince maupo si Secretary Bautista sa DWSD, ni nungka hindi malaman ng mga tao ang plataporma niya o ano ang plano niya sa ahensya,” he said.

Bautista was the first commander of Presidential Security Group under Duterte and retired as Army chief in October and was a seasoned military commander fighting terrorist groups. He was appointed as Secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development by President Duterte after his retirement from the military service.
