MANILA, Philippines – Veteran broadcaster Korina Sanchez, wife of Liberal Party’s vice presidential bet Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, was booed during Sunday’s sold-out concert of ‘80s English pop rock duo “Tears for Fears” at the Araneta Coliseum, online reports said.

The crowd, according to reports, booed when Sanchez flashed the “Laban” sign when she was shown on 2 giant screens. Sanchez was watching the concert with Mar.

The gesture reportedly caught the ire of the tens of thousands of people who trooped to the Big Dome to watch Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith perform their greatest hits.

In his blog (http://www.motwister.com/blog/2010/5/3/was-it-right-to-boo-korina-sanche...), controversial television host and DJ Mo Twister lambasted the broadcaster.

“Yes, she is thrilled about her husband's likely win in the VP race, and of course, the Noynoy Aquino campaign. But sweet Jezus lady, it's a concert meant to entertain the thousands of Filipinos watching. Maybe it's even an escape from all the political talk engrossing our country at the present time,” he wrote, adding:

“Do you think it was right to boo her? Ask me and I say, absolutely.” (ABS-CBN)
