Latest Twitter uproar about Charice really reveals the true or lack of heart of many Filipinos. Really shameful for the world to see.
"Chasters," or long-time fans of the young singer, meanwhile, were left asking: "Where in the world is our idol?"
Charice's last project on television was the Philippine edition of the reality singing contest "The X Factor," which aired on ABS-CBN from June to October 2012.
Since then, however, the David Foster protégé has largely disappeared from local showbiz, with only a number of viral photos of her latest look serving as traces as to Charice's whereabouts.
