Based on the article in Inquirer, this recent claim of Robin came after he defended Senator Bong Go for saying that Lapu-Lapu was Tausug. A netizen slammed the actor and the latter questioned the educational background of the former.

“You got to be kidding. Are you from Ateneo? De La Salle? UST? All Spanish established schools for insulares, peninsulares and mestizos. You don’t need to be a doctor of anything to accept reality,” Robin Padilla said.
