- Enchong Dee took to Twitter to slam the government on what he claims is an attempt by the government to engage in propaganda making the administration look good
- The actor said that whatever propaganda the government is harping on, it still cannot dispute data on its actual economic performance
- He included a screenshot of the economic performance of several countries in Asia
- The data shows the Philippines at the bottom of the list with a negative ratio
Enchong Dee recently posted on Twitter and slammed the government for allegedly harping on what he claims as propaganda.
The actor also included a screenshot of data on economic performance of countries in South, East, and Southeast Asia.
In his tweet, he said: “No amount of propaganda can dispute data on ph government's economic performance.”
Enchong, like several other artists like Agot Isidro, Angel Locsin, Alessandra de Rossi, Ethel Booba, Gretchen Ho, and Janine Gutierrez, are known to criticize the current administration.
Recently, Angel Locsin also took to social media to slam what she claims is an attempt by President Rodrigo Duterte to belittle the current health crisis.
Several government officials have also crossed swords with the said artists, though in some instances, their statements were allegedly already considered veiled threats.
It is not clear if the data Enchong posted along with his tweet is recent. It appears to be a screenshot from the IBON Foundation and contains a compilation of the economic performance summary of countries in South, East, and Southeast Asia.
The IBON Foundation data also mentioned it sourced its data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), though the screengrab shows the Philippines’ economic performance at -9.5%, the current IMF data shows the country at -8.5%.

Ernest Lorenzo Velasquez Dee or Enchong Dee, is a Filipino actor, model, and swimmer. He was born on November 5, 1988. He came to prominence after starring in his first major TV drama Katorse.
About a month ago, the actor also reacted to the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte about the ABS-CBN franchise. In a tweet, the actor said that the government should prioritize the poverty problem of Filipinos. Enchong posted the tweet after President Duterte, in a speech, said he will not allow the network to operate until it pays its tax deficiencies. The giant network previously stated, which was also concurred by the Bureau of Internal Revenue, that they do not have any tax deficiencies.
Shortly after making that statement, Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo called out the actor, as well as Agot Isidro, for expressing their sentiments against the statement of President Duterte. Panelo advised Agot and Enchong to research the facts first before commenting on these political issues. Furthermore, he also asked the two actors if they are planning to enter politics.
