- G Toengi posted on Instagram rebuking President Duterte’s trash talking
- Defenders of the President quickly came to the rescue and lashed out at G
- G found supporters in the the persons of Jim Paredes and Diego Castro
While President Rodrigo Duterte has his own throng of avid Philippine celebrity supporters, he also has his critics, and one of them is G Toengi.
In an Instagram post of G last October 5, the actress gave a profound and really negative comment against President Duterte. This was right after the loud-mouthed President told US President Barack Obama, “go to hell.”
G’s strongly worded post was:
She reiterated in her post that she herself is a Filipino and that Duterte is also her President, thereby giving her the right to criticize him as well.
“I am still a Filipino through & through! But for God's sake, enough of the trash talking!” exclaimed the 38-year-old actress.
G said that Duterte’s manner is “unpresidential” and “unbecoming.” Well, Duterte actually once admitted during a speech that his character was only for a “mayoralty” as he is not ready for the big league.
Aside from hitting at the foul language that the President commonly uses during speeches and almost all his public appearances, G also lashed out at the number of dead people that have turned up in less than 100 days in office. Include the daily rants and the actress was able to encapsulate the growing sentiments against Duterte.
G only has one major question, how will Filipinos tolerate his character for 6 years?
G also expected “nonsensical bashing” because of her post.
Well, true enough, her Instagram feed was flooded with Duterte trolls. But not all of them were trolls because some sided with her.
Jim Paredes and Diego Castro came to G's defense.
One user also noted that those who bashed her mostly had Private accounts and were branded by the netizen as cowards.
One OFW shared the same sentiment with G considering that they try their best to lift up the identity of Filipinos in the US only for the Philippine President to let a barrage of offensive statements every now and then.
Oh well, G should just shrug off the bashers who don’t see the bigger picture the way she does along with the many others who opt to remain silent. However, the feisty actress couldn't help but hit back at bashers.
