Enchong Dee and Agot Isidro went viral last week for criticizing President Rodrigo Duterte’s comments regarding ABS-CBN.
They slammed the President for saying that ABS-CBN will not be allowed to operate even if it is granted a new franchise by Congress due to its alleged unpaid taxes.
“Si Duterte. Hindi ang Kongreso, hindi ang NTC. Utos niya, simula’t sapul,” Agot tweeted last week.
“Andyan ka pa rin?? Hoy Gising! Ang daming Pilipino naghihirap ngayon, yun muna unahin natin kahit wala kaming franchise nakakapagbigay serbisyo kami,” Enchong posted.
During his “Counterpoint” program on February 12, Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo called out the two actors for voicing out their sentiments against Duterte.
He advised them to research the facts first before commenting on these political issues. Panelo also asked the two stars if they are planning to enter politics.
“Kayong dalawa Agot Isidro at saka itong batang-batang na kababayan natin na si Enchong Dee na nagbigay na naman ng kanilang mga pahayag, dismayado daw sila. Bakit naman daw itong si Presidente sasabihin na hindi niya papayagan na mag-operate kahit may prangkisa.
“Mahilig din itong dalawang ito pumasok ‘no. Ano ba kayo? Tatakbo ba kayo congressman? Tatakbo ba kayong konsehal o barangay kapitan?
“Eh hindi pa nga ninyo alam kung ano puno’t dulo basta na lang kayo pumapasok. Papakinggan ninyo muna. Know your facts. Research bago kayo magsalita,” Panelo said.
Enchong Dee is a Kapamilya actor who has appeared in projects such as Katorse, Maria de la Barrio, and Muling Buksan ang Puso.
He also used to be an athlete, taking part in the Philippine national swimming team that competed in the SEA Games and 2006 Asian Games.
The actor earned a lot of praises online when he shared the positive result of his fundraiser with actress Ria Atayde. The two stars were able to purchase protective equipment and food because of their fundraiser. The actor then personally delivered the PPEs and food to the office of Vice President Leni Robredo.
He also made news when he expressed his outrage over the alleged list of asymptomatic politicians and individuals who supposedly took COVID-19 tests. Enchong Dee called the people in the alleged list inconsiderate, greedy, and disgraceful.
