- Many netizens reacted to her tweet, and some of them are happy that she does not support the president anymore
Angelica Panganiban reacted to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s statement that women are not fit for the highest position in the government.
The sexist issue started when the president announced that his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, will not be running for the presidency in 2022. He said that he discouraged her from doing so because of the tough experiences he has been going through as the country's leader. For Pres. Duterte, the presidential position is not suitable for women due to their emotional setup.
Many celebrities reacted to this remark, and one of these is Angelica. The Kapamilya actress posted a short tweet saying she prefers a woman president who acts.
“Dun ako sa acting president na BABAE.”
Many netizens commented on Angelica’s tweet. Some reminded her that she was once a Duterte supporter.
“Di naman bawal magpalit ng choice, 2021 na” said Twitter user @monday_demos.
“’Walang krimen, walang magnanakaw, walang kababuyan, kung ang namumuno ng bansa natin ay hindi natatakot ayusin at linisin ang Pilipinas. Babae ako at ang Pangulo ko ay si Duterte.’ – Angelica Panganiban 2016. Congrats nagising na rin ang nabudol budol. (emojis)” @ZaynMiley posted.
“Tama, naniwala rin me dati sakanya at produ30 me nung first month nya kaso hehe unti unti talaga tayong nagigising at naeeducate at walang mali ron. Yung mali eh alam mo ng ginagago na lang tayo eh tuwang tuwa ka pa.” replied @Catastrophe8800.
