- The lead vocalist of the band Rocksteddy and It's Showtime host, Teddy Corpuz, went all out in lambasting the "highlights" made by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during his SONA
- He fired back at the propositions made by PRRD such as the reimposition of death penalty
- Teddy said that there is a pandemic that the country is facing and yet, his primary agenda was the reimposition of the death penalty
- Addressing the President, the singer and host said that saving lives must be the priority before reimposing the death penalty
Showtime host and singer Teddy Corpus was no longer able to contain his strong sentiments against the President after the latter's SONA.
The President was talking primarily about death penalty, ABS-CBN, the Anti-Terrorism Law and the issue on the West Philippine Sea.
When it rained while the SONA was ongoing, Teddy made a very strong statement.
"Luh lakas nang kulog at ayan nagsisimula nang umulan. Pati kalangitan hindi naniniwala sa mga pinag sasasabi sa #SONA2020."
The singer also lamented how the President, instead of focusing on the pandemic, chose to push for the reimposition of the death penalty.
"Death penalty for drug related crimes. Eh pano kung Hulihin ka because of anti-terror bill tapos taniman ka nang droga sa bulsa or bahay mo? Edi deads ka na. Jusko alam na namin saan to pupunta susme!"
“Death penalty ang sinusulong. May pandemic oh ser! MAY PANDEMIC! Sagip buhay muna para sa pandemya atupagin bago yan. SAGIP BUHAY muna daming apektado puro pag patay lang nasa isip. Nung klase yan!”
The President himself openly stated his disdain towards the Lopezes by saying that he was the casualty of the Lopezes during the 2016 elections.
"Ayun deny pa nang deny mga spokes personnel mo and your camp na ‘neutral’ ka sa isyu nang ABSCBN yun pala manggagaling din sa bibig mo. Your SONA just confirmed your true dark intentions. Thanks TheTurtle."
Politicians who also expressed their thoughts include Sen. Kiko Pangilinan and Risa Hontiveros. Recently, an incident in Quiapo Church caught the attention of social media users. Two police officers took away the protest materials while the mass was ongoing.
Sen. Risa Hontiveros thereafter talked with the MPDD Roland Miranda about the incident, saying that they were not even staging a rally.
The recently held rally at the University of the Philippines campus was attended by groups from different sectors.
