Regine Velasquez has appealed for kindness when correcting someone’s mistake.

She then received bashing from the netizens since the comment featured is now activated in Instagram flat form.
On her Twitter post, Regine fires back against her bashers explaining that she unintentionally misspells the name of Kobe Bryant. She also explained that she has dyslexia which is a syndrome of a person hard to spell the words.
Here’s her statement following the bashing that she received:
“I always make a mistake with spelling someone name you can correct me without embarrassing me and it’s ok. I have dyslexia I have a hard time with spelling. Please be kind again you can correct me without making me feel bad,” she quoted.
“Life is so short so use your voices to inspire people and be kind to one another,” she added.
Regine received a comment from her husband Ogie Alcasid. “I love you my honey (three heart emojis),” Ogie wrote.
