Another friend of Ogie, who works in the Kapamilya network also agreed and shared that he saw Xander Ford yelling arrogantly at the guard of ABS-CBN. Several others couldn’t help but respond.

Xander defended himself on the issue by asking for the public’s understanding before judging him. Ogie, again, responded by clarifying that he is not judging him but only giving advice to stop his rude behavior before it’s too late.

Ogie shared on Facebook that they were on the way to a taping of their show, Home Sweetie Home where Xander Ford is their guest celebrity. On the hallway, there were so many people asking for Xander’s photos but Ogie’s singer friend nudged him to avoid Xander. She said, “Kuya Ogie, halika na. Ayoko yan. Hindi ko gusto yan. Mayabang yan." When Ogie asked why, the singer added, “Nakasabay ko yan nung isang araw sa lobby ng ABS-CBN. Lumapit siya sa guwardya, sabi niya, 'Guard, guard! Papasukin mo 'ko. Ako si Xander Ford'"

Another friend of Ogie, Allan Nazareno, who works for ABS-CBN chimed in and confirmed the seemingly bad attitude of Xander Ford. He commented, “Tapos nung pa-enter Sa Hallway ng Main Bldng Papuntang dressing room siyempre madadaanan niya yung studio 4 kung saan kami nagtaping rin. Noong makita niyang maraming tao yung hooded niyang jacket sinaklob ng buo sa mukha at lakad bigstar...hahahaahaha”

He even added, “Korek mamshie Ogie Diaz nung Wednesday taping of ggv (Gandang Gabi Vice) naganap yung sinigawan niya yung marshall. ‘Di daw sya papasok ‘pag di pinapasok yung manager niya. Nanakot na ‘di aatend ng taping. Kaloka..hahahaha nabago ng experiment ang ugali. Hahaha”

Even actor Jeff Tam who worked with then, Marlou Arizala shared, “Ogie Diaz kaya nawala sa dolce amore ‘yan noon eh attitude problem din.”

Even actress Aiko Melendez couldn’t help but comment, “Eh ‘di wow.”

Another netizen shared his insights on the issue, “Daming posts regarding sa pagiging mayabang niya simula nung nagpa-retoke siya. Tsk tsk very bad... Ultimo dati nung wala pang retoke sa kaniya madami din po issues na lumalabas.”

Ogie also posted his surprise on Facebook when he saw Xander Ford grabbing everyone’s attention with his 5 companions and a neon green neck pillow while inside ABS-CBN.

Ogie made light of the issue by ending the post with, “Ohhh, di ba? Ang syoray ng Lolo Xander n'yo. Hahaha!”

Several others also commented that maybe Xander just needed a little reminding about humility.

The issue had reached Xander Ford and he took to Facebook his sentiments. In a long message, he asks that the public should not judge him so quickly. He denied all the rumored incidents that lead people to call him arrogant.

“Paano niyo po nalaman, buong buhay ko puro panglalait ang nakukuha ko sa mga tao. Inilalabas nyo po na hindi daw ako marunong makisama. Una po sa lahat nag papakahirap ako para ipakita na ginawa ko ang procedure na ito kahit ayaw ko, para mabago ang tingin nyo. Opo, umiiyak ako kasi hindi nyo po kasi Inaalam kung ano ginagawa ko, Xander said.

Xander even said that he is willing to beg for forgiveness to Ogie but also asks that he should have confronted him first before spreading the issue. Xander adds that, “Nag mamakaawa ako sana Tito [Ogie] Diaz. Kausapin nyo muna ako bago mo po ako husgahan kasi po narinig nyo lang naman po. ano papot kayo ang hinahangan ko mula pag kabata ko tapos po ganyan po. sinisiraan mo po ako tito The Ogie Diaz wala po akong tinatapakan na tulad nyo nag show po ako na minsan hindi ako nag pabayad. Kasi gusto ko makapag pasaya ng tao at hindi manakit tulad po ng ginawa nyo sa akin ngayon."

Ogie had also replied to Xander’s message to him. He clarified that he did not judge him but only advising him. On his Facebook page, he said, “Di ko alam kung saan mo napulot yung hinuhusgahan kita. Hindi kita hinuhusgahan. Pinapayuhan kita.”

Ogie added that while Marlou should stop playing victim because all of people are witness to his seemingly rude attitude. He said, “Pero, Marlou, andami namang nagpapatotoo ng asta mo kung nababasa mo ang mga comments sa posts ko, di ba? Ano yon? Nag-imbento lang sila? Wag kang mag-play api-apihan, anak. Walang umaapi sa yo. Wag kang umastang kawawa, kasi hindi ka kinakawawa.”

"Nangyayari lang ang panlalait sa yo ng ibang tao kasi ikaw ang gumagawa ng dahilan para laitin ka nila. Gusto mo ba, i-screen grab ko ang mga nagpi-pm sa akin na nagpapatotoo na mas yumabang ka mula nang maging Xander ka? Hindi mo magugustuhan, anak, kaya pinili kong wag na lang ilabas," Ogie laments.

Marlou Arizala’s transformation to Xander Ford drew several reactions across the internet. It even sparked debates on what’s more important, good looks or good attitude.
