The actress expressed the difficulty experienced in securing masks, highlighting that these are usually taken by big companies or politicians.
In a Tweet, Angel slammed sellers who were overpricing masks that are meant to be given to frontliners.
She revealed that she received an offer for a mask priced at a whopping P1,500.

Many of the actress' followers expressed their anger over the unscrupulous sellers. Others tried to provide information as to where they could source masks as well as alcohol.
