- Angel Locsin defended herself after Senator “Tito” Sotto liked a tweet saying she’s a supporter of the New People’s Army
- Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III is a principal author the new anti-terror bill at the Senate
- Angel clarified that she will never support terrorists, nor any kind of violence
- The actress has been vocal about her disapproval of the new anti-terror bill
Angel Locsin reacted to a tweet saying she’s a pro-NPA which was liked by Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.
The Kapamilya actress tagged Sotto's Twitter account saying, "Hi Sen @sotto_tito, saw that you liked this tweet."
Angel said that she will never support terrorists nor any kind of violence.
"You have the right to like any tweet. And we have the right to voice out our opinions. I hope we don’t get tagged as a terrorist for doing so. Thank you," she added.
The actress is among the celebrities who have been vocal about their disapproval of the new anti-terror bill which was authored by Senator Sotto.
Celebrities including Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray also support the call to “junk” the bill.
The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 proposes sweeping powers, such as warrantless arrests and wiretapping of suspected terrorists, which have alarmed rights groups.
Meanwhile, here are some of the netizens' reactions regarding Angel's statement:
Nakalimot ka Angel. Kung sino ang tumulong sa pagpapagamot sa likod mo. Sana dedma mo na lang ghourl!
So tatahimik na lang sya kahit kung anu-anong mali ang ikinakalat tungkol sa kanya? Polite naman yung pag-address nya kay Tito Sotto, there's nothing wrong with defending yourself.
Again, another reason to junk terror bill. Ano proof ni Sotto? Basta sinabi niya, ganern? So she supports the causes of activists for ayuda, mass testing, etc. Terrorist na ba yun na kalevel ng abu sayaff ar isis? So basta lang kasi supporter ng aktibista, terrorist na? Diba bomb joke nga lang, huli ka na?? Eh pano pa yung aktibista? The law is vague! It has many loopholes! Lumalabas talaga na it's not anti terrorism, it's anti activism. May mga existing laws na tayo for terrorism.
