Twitter is abuzz as has-been Filipino actor and rapper(?) Carlos Agassi released a controversial song and music video called ‘Milk Tea’ and trans activist Mela Habijan has a few words to say about that.
Habijan on July 18, Tuesday, released a statement on Twitter slamming the actor for his transphobic lyrics, specifically pointing out the line “gay with a venti milk tea” which was a play on a transwoman who has not undergone a gender reassignment surgery.
The trans activist lambasted the actor for “trying to revive his career” and suggested that he does it right with the proper ingredients which she said are “real talent, hard work, charisma, and treating people right.”
Dear @amiragassi ,
I understand that you may be trying to revive your showbiz career or at the least, be relevant, but I suggest, do it right!
The ingredients to how people bounce back in life: real talent, hard work, charisma, and treating people right. Work on these!
