Jimmy Bondoc shared his thoughts online about Angel Locsin, who has been posting regularly on social media about current issues like the ABS-CBN shutdown.
KAMI learned that Jimmy praised Angel for being informed, incisive, updated, intelligent, courageous, and upfront.
The singer said that even though Angel has criticized him before, he appreciates that she only made comments about his arguments and did not resort to ad hominem attacks.
However, he believes that Angel should engage in a live appearance to talk about the issues she has posted about to raise awareness on her advocacies and to dispel the accusation that she is not really the one posting online about the issues but a hired social media team.
“Kahit inaway ako dati ni Mam Angel Locsin sa mga tweet niya, at kinuyug ng trolls nila,
“I have to be fair now, and acknowledge that her posts and responses these days are very informed and incisive. Very admirable.
“Her replies are even more informed than posts of some lawyers or law students, and her awareness of house bills is very updated. It is almost unbelievable how she managed to do this.
“I am glad to see an Angel Locsin represent the showbiz sector in a better light. I hope she does an actual debate or open interview soon so that she can inspire her fans and other artists to become smarter, more articulate, and more legally informed.
“The interview or debate should be fair. It should cover only the topics that she has posted or tweeted about, such as the labor code, or the ARISE bill, the CURES bill, and the franchise issue. However, she should also be free to expand the coverage to other issues she is an advocate of. That would be very inspiring for her fans and the general public.
“I do not mind getting bashed by the likes of Mam Angel. At least, when she bashed me, she focused on labor issues and the loss of employment in her particular network, very worthy causes. Unlike others who simply attacked me ad hominem and sent threatening and humiliating messages to me and my family, or circulated false versions of my posts via their secret viber groups and chats, Mam Angel directly challenged my opinion on the franchise issue. She is not only intelligent, but courageous and upfront.
“A public and live appearance by her would be very inspiring, and let us hope she decides to take her advocacies to that level. It would also put to rest the rumors that her socmed accounts are merely managed by a team for her. I do not believe that. I think she is really very smart, maybe even smarter than her posts would imply.
“Kudos to Mam Angel Locsin for using her status judiciously and conscientiously. There should be more like her. Let us all support and promote a smarter Philippines,” Jimmy posted on Facebook.
The ABS-CBN shutdown has caused a huge controversy in the country, with many people saying that what is happening is political oppression, while others argue that the network deserves to be closed for its alleged injustices.
There are some well-known personalities who have slammed the ABS-CBN network, including Jay Sonza – who criticized the airing of Kapamilya shows on TV Plus – and Vivian Velez – who has praised the closure of the network.
However, most showbiz personalities have expressed their support for ABS-CBN. Superstar actress Angel Locsin earned the sympathy of netizens while emotionally talking about the Kapamilya network crisis.
