Angel Locsin recently took to social media to praise Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong after the latter drew flak for attending Tim Yap’s birthday party.
Yap’s party became controversial for allegedly violating some health protocols. Magalong, who also sits as the government’s contact tracing czar, then admitted that there were lapses in the observance of protocols in the said party, which he attended with his wife.
Following the controversy, Magalong has resigned as contact tracing czar, but it was rejected by the National Task Force.
To this Locsin praised the politician’s leadership and accountability.
“had a productive meeting with mayor Magalong and Sir Roland last week for covid vaccines and ibayan when we were in Baguio. I know he’s all over the news lately, so, I just want to share our experience with him. He reminded us to wear our masks and face shields and to respect the locals by following safety protocols. He also wore his mask the whole time. Just putting this here not to justify pero para may ibang side naman :) ang refreshing makita sa balita na may accountability at sense of honor ang isang opisyal para aminin ang pagkakamali. Kelangan natin ng mga ganito. Also, magaling siya.”
Angel Locsin, known in real life as Angelica Locsin Colmenares, is a Filipina actress and endorser. She is currently in a relationship with Neil Arce. Angel has also produced films and is a fashion designer.
The actress once again received a special award for her philanthropy efforts. She was given the ‘Spirit of Philanthropy Award’ by the Philippine Red Cross.
She recently defended Vice Ganda, particularly against those calling the comedian a mere "komedyante". Vice has been the subject of controversy after he compared the right to choose vaccines with choosing laundry soaps, which thereafter Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that experts must be trusted and not a "komedyante".
