Pokwang came to the defense of Anne Curtis after the actress experienced some bashing from someone with the Facebook handle Mark Lopez.
The incident happened after Anne posted on Twitter, asking the government as to what are its plans amid the rising cases of COVID-19.
The basher copied and reposted Anne’s tweet, adding his own reactions to the actress’ statements.
“No wonder Covid-19 cases are up and surging. If an influencer like Anne Curtis is not aware of the measures and protocols that were put in place by the government, then the virus transmission will surely go on,” the basher began.
“Seriously Anne, you don't know the plan? Or is this another agitprop that you are allowing yourself to be used?” he continued.
“What's the plan daw amp*ta! T*ngina, matagal na na announce ang plan! At ang hinihingi sa inyo ay kooperasyon at sumunod kayo sa mga patakaran! Bwis*t!” the basher said in his own post.
Pokwang, upon coming across the post, immediately called out the basher for his foul language.
“Sir nagtanong lang po anong plan di po kailangan ang salitang T*NGINA! Happy easter po... pagka buhay ni Hesus para tubusin tayo sa pagkakasala. Amen,” Pokwang posted in reply to the basher.
She ended her post with a prayer for Anne and her family. “God bless you @annecurtissmith and your Family! #GodblessPhilippines,” Pokwang wrote.

Marietta Subong, more popularly known as Pokwang, is a Filipino comedian, actress, television host and singer. She was born on August 27, 1970 and started her showbiz career through a reality show on ABS-CBN. Pokwang subsequently appeared in dramas and sitcoms of the network. She also received the Best Comedy Actress award from the Philippine Movie Press Club for her portrayal in the sitcom Aalog-Alog and the Best Female Comedian award from People's Choice Awards.
Pokwang has always been supportive of government efforts until last year when she gradually made an about-face. Recently, the comedienne hit the remark of barangay officials that lugaw is not essential. The incident involved a male Grab rider being apprehended for delivering the said food. He can be heard discussing with a woman who insisted that lugaw is a non-essential good.
In another instance, the comedienne also used social media to express her shock and dismay over the arrest of a young man who only went out of their gate to get the food he ordered from a delivery guy. In a Twitter post, the actress cannot help but take a swipe at the barangay tanods who arrested the man. She called on the chairman of the barangay where the tanod belongs to give proper briefing to their personnel.
