It all started when Tutti commented on a thread in the Facebook group "Best of the Best Manila." The group was asked by one of its members about the "best humane way to stop stray cats from hanging/living in your garden and lanai." Tutti then joined the conversation by commenting: "Bought an airgun just for that," which infuriated animal rights advocates. Shortly after, Tutti's comment made the rounds on social media.

Now, the Cabuyao, Laguna Councilor is finally breaking his silence regarding the animal cruelty issue. Taking to Instagram, the "No Rewind No Play" singer explained his side and claimed his comment got blown out of proportion. Tutti wrote: "So may nag post "What is the best humane way to get rid of stray cats living in your backyard?" Mga pusang gala kumbaga. Nagcomment ako. Sabi ko “I BOUGHT AN AIRGUN JUST FOR THAT”. Wala akong binanggit na namamaril ako ng pusa mismo. In fact, I even explained na lupa binabaril ko or yung basurahan para magulat yung cat. That’s basically it. Diko na pinahaba, i deleted the post nalang."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hi guys. Looks like the cat issue is getting out of hand and I'm sure all of you would like to hear my side. I will give you 2 explanations. A long detailed one and a short and simple one. Here’s the long one: May isang facebook group ang pangalan Best of the Best. Ang posts dun ay "Where is the best place to eat steak? What is the best way to fix my car?" etc. So may nag post "What is the best humane way to get rid of stray cats living in your backyard?" Mga pusang gala kumbaga. Nagcomment ako. Sabi ko “I BOUGHT AN AIRGUN JUST FOR THAT”. Wala akong binanggit na namamaril ako ng pusa mismo. In fact, I even explained na lupa binabaril ko or yung basurahan para magulat yung cat. That’s basically it. Diko na pinahaba, i deleted the post nalang. Here’s the short and direct to the point explanation: I DID NOT NOR HAVE I EVER NOR DO I INTEND TO SHOOT OR HURT ANY CAT OR ANIMAL. Though crass and distasteful, they were meant to be JOKES. Those who know me would know and understand my humor. That being said, I apologize for being offensive, especially to our four-legged friends. 😽😽😽 Thank you and Happy New Year to all. Rakenrol 🤘

Tutti later apologized for his controversial comment which, according to him, was originally intended to be a joke: "I DID NOT NOR HAVE I EVER NOR DO I INTEND TO SHOOT OR HURT ANY CAT OR ANIMAL. Though crass and distasteful, they were meant to be JOKES. Those who know me would know and understand my humor. That being said, I apologize for being offensive, especially to our four-legged friends."
