Arnell Ignacio has expressed his dismay and frustration over Angel Locsin's community pantry in a viral video circulating online.
It can be recalled that Angel's community pantry in Quezon City made headlines when people flocked to get supplies resulting in the death of a senior citizen.
In his video, KAMI learned that Arnell began by asking local government units (LGU) to give the people who want to help, choices to choose from.
"Maglagay na tayo ng choices o pagpipilian, alternatives, options, kung paano sila tutulong. Para ito naka-set up na, mamimili na lang sila. Ang problema kasi, free for all," he said.
According to Arnell, "Kasi kaya tayo laging magulo, kasi hinahayaan lang natin yung mga citizens mag-isip kung ano gagawin niya."
The actor said that the IATF or LGU should provide the people with options about how they can help during the pandemic.
"So ako, ang sinusuggest ko rito, IATF o kung sino man, LGU, maglagay na kayo ng options. Paano ba ang pwedeng gawin ng mga gustong tumulong? O ito, gusto niyo mag-fumigate.
"Gusto niyo ba pagkain? O ito ang mangyayari kapag yan ang gusto ninyo. Mamili na lang kayo diyan. Pero yung siya ang mag-iisip ng operations nito, ng logistics nito, magulo yan."
According to Arnell, the tragic incident that happened at the pantry is not surprising as Angel is a public figure.
"Nako, eh yang may namatay. Hindi naman nakakagulat yan eh. Aba syempre, magdadagsaan yan. Mainit. Wala namang nangyari diyan na nakakagulat.
"'Nako di ko ine-expect na dadagsa tao no, ang bullsh*t naman niyan. Susmaryosep naman, tumayo ka nga lang, artista patayuin mo lang diyan magkakagulo diyan eh."
Arnell even mentioned that distributing food in such a manner should be discouraged and that a systematic way of helping people should be placed instead.
"Actually, you should discourage people giving away food sa ganyang paraan. Kailangan may sistema in place na ito na ang susundin niyo, hindi pwedeng kayo ang magiisip kung paano. Hindi talaga pwedeng free for all, meron tayong krisis ngayon."
At the end of his video, the actor clearly expressed his frustration over the matter and admitted that he is mad about it.
"Ngayon dapat meron ka na, 'Okay matulungin po kayo, maraming salamat, ito po ang mga pamamaraan, ito po ang kailangan ng ating lungsod. Ito po kulang na kulang tayo sa fumigation, gusto niyo po ba ito? Ito option #1, ito rin po kulang ang pagkain dito sa lugar na ito.'
"Ituturo mo yan. Hindi yung parang mananawagan ka sa buong bansa na mamimigay ka tas 300 lang pala ang kaya mo. O ano pa ba, 'Ito po, ang ospital po, ito po ang kakulangan. Gusto niyo po sagutin niyo na? Gusto niyo po bang tumulong?
"May pasyente po rito di nakakabayad, kulang na kulang po ang pera.' Yun ang tulong! Eh p*tang*na, ikaw iikot ka diyan, mamimigay ka, ano ka?
"Alam na alam natin magkakagulo yan, wag na tayong mag-eklatan dito, mag-tarantaduhan. P*tang*na naman eh, jusko naman, nakakapanggigil yun ganun eh."
Furthermore, Arnell added, "Ang hindi nagisip, yun namamahala dun."
