8 of Mo Twister’s
Most Infamous Feuds
By Kel Fabie
You can love him, you can hate him, but Mo Twister will always do what he does best: shooting from the hip, consequences be damned. It’s that kind of devil-may-care attitude that has gotten him far in Philippine radio, much to the delight of his fans, and the chagrin of his detractors.
After #DelamarOnGoodTimes and now his latest dust-up with none other than a certain Attorney who admires Adolf Hitler unironically, we would like to take a retrospective on the many different people Mo Twister has feuded with. It’s a pretty lengthy list, so we have to pick the 8 most popcorn-worthy of the lot.
Who: A sportscaster
The Beef: Probably one of the least egregious of feuds here, but Mo Twister didn’t really take too kindly to Mr. Roxas wearing a Supreme armband while playing basketball. Nor on Hoodie Anton.
The Resolution: Anton Roxas completely no-sold the “feud,” and let his cousin do the talking for him instead.
The Winner: Either you call it a win for Mo by default, or a win for Anton by not playing at all.
Who: Radio personality, RX 93.1.
The Beef: Mo has been picking on Rico’s co-hosts for years, namely Karen Bordador and Jinri Park. While neither of them ever retaliated, Rico Robles fired back when Mo Twister started talking about Fran, one of the veteran jocks from RX who was unceremoniously released by the company. There are speculations about the reasons behind it, but Mr. Robles had enough, and the ensuing Twitter fight was a spectacle to behold.
The Resolution: What resolution? These two are still going at it as recently as a week or two ago. It’s highly unlikely they’d ever get along.
The Winner: We all lose here, guys.
Who: Former actress and commercial model.
The Beef: Posting a photo of Karel and her friends, Mo asked if the girls even had any idea what team former Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo was playing for, then mentioned a flash of underwear on the part of Karel. Karel responded scathingly, pointing out that no, they’re not just a bunch of groupies, and she wished he took this to her face instead of on social media. Mo responded by saying he didn’t know it was her, and walking back some of his comments.
The Resolution: None. The feud just disappeared as quickly as it began.
The Winner: Sorry, Mo. Seems like Karel got you there.
Who: A showbiz reporter.
The Beef: In 2007, Mo Twister took umbrage to Ogie Diaz comparing him to comedian Jograd Dela Torre, and retaliated by calling Ogie “the ugliest showbiz writer” he has ever seen, among other choice words. They supposedly made up a year later, but in 2011, things escalated after Ogie’s blind item about a segment host losing his segment due to being “difficult” to work with caught Mo’s eye. After offering his own scathing blind item, he promptly referred to Ogie as “a cancer” to the industry.
The Resolution: It seems like this thing just petered out, but no, it’s safe to say Ogie Diaz and Mo aren’t done with each other, if given the chance.
The Winner: People who enjoy blind items.
