Korina Sanchez gets booed at Tears for Fears concert for flashing Laban sign

While English duo Tears for Fears rocked their May 2 Concert at the Araneta Coliseum, TV personality Korina Sanchez, who attended the concert, got booed by the audience, reports MB.com.ph.

Though Sanchez, wife of vice presidential candidate Mar Roxas, didn't exactly disrupt Tears for Fears' performance, the crowd got agitated when she was shown flashing the Laban sign of her husband's political party on the giant LCD screen at the concert venue.

Other celebrity concert-goers were quick to share details about the incident online.   On Twitter, newscaster TJ Manotoc revealed: "For those asking, korina was shown when TFF was off d stage. So dey showed people in d crowd going nuts screaming. She also did d Laban sign."   According to the MB.com.ph story, Manotoc also disclosed that Sanchez was, in fact, booed twice.

Controversial disc jockey and TV host Mo Twister blogged about the incident. In a post entitled "Was It Right to Boo Korina Sanchez at the Tears for Fears Concert?," he wrote, "Yes she is thrilled about her husband's likely win in the VP race, and of course, the Noynoy Aquino campaign. But sweet Jesus lady, it's a concert meant to entertain the thousands of Filipinos watching."

Netizens agreed that Korina's campaign antics were done in the wrong place at the wrong time. MB.com.ph even quoted an unnamed Twitter user who said, "Nice to see that Korina was booed in 'her' own coliseum. Hehehe."

Meanwhile, in the same post, Mo Twister likewise revealed, "In related news, Manny Villar was seen flaunting the "V" check when shown on the big screen at the Kelly Clarkson concert on Saturday night."
