Another fan shared another clip of Bretman reacting while he watches “Trese” in Filipino.
“Do you hear that? That’s Tagalog on my motherf**king TV, b*tch, on my Netflix!” he exclaimed on the video.
In another clip, Bretman said he can understand Filipino.
“Kung nagsasalita ako ng Tagalog, kailangan ko mag-isip muna… nakakaintindi ako fluently,” he explained.

Despite this, Bretman invited his followers to stream “Trese” while speaking in Filipino.
“I-stream niyo po ang Trese… I-stream niyo po si Trese… b*tch, stream Trese!” he exclaimed.
