Broadcaster Ben Tulfo on Saturday expressed anger at Social Welfare and Development chief Rolando Bautista for setting conditions before accepting his brother Erwin Tulfo's apology.
"Putres na 'brotherhood'! ang KAKAPAL! Ayon sa kumag na OIC, mag-sorry daw sa lahat ng media outlet. 'BUTAW' na P300k kinakailangan para mahugasan ang kasalanan. Tsong, daig mo pa si Padre Damaso at mga kolokoy na kauri mo! Nagpapatawa ka ba?! #unfiltered," Ben wrote on Twitter.
He said Erwin must have his public apology published as a half-page ad or bigger on major newspapers, the cost of which will come from the broadcast personality's own pocket.
The rift started after Erwin ranted on air against Bautista after he was told by the latter's office to request an interview before he could interview the secretary on his radio show.
"Eh kung ako nahihirapan ako magkaroon ng access sayo, eh pano pa ang mahihirap? Sige nga, saguitn mo, punyeta ka. Putragis ka isa ka pang heneral ka na walang kwenta. Ewan ko ba kung bakit nalagay ka ng Pangulo dyan, buang ka," Tulfo said in his program over state-run Radyo Pilipinas early this week.
The Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. was considering to file cases against Erwin after he issued "degrading remarks" against Bautista.
The Association of General and Flag Officers also slammed Erwin for "abuse of freedom" for berating and publicly humiliating Bautista.
Mon Tulfo, the eldest of the brothers, said his brother Erwin's rant against Bautista was wrong.
The Tulfo brothers' security escorts were ordered pulled out by Interior Secretary Eduardo Año
