- Gretchen’s fans are divided on the actress choice to support the Marcoses
Actress G Tongi raised an eyebrow over Gretchen Barretto’s support on Marcos burial.
Gretchen Barretto posted a photo of the controversial Marcos burial last Saturday, a day after of the actual confidential burial at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani. The caption reads, “Finally AFTER 27 years PRESIDENT FERDINAND MARCOS at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. MARCOS PA RIN”
G Tongi, on the other hand, commented on the post, “Seriously!?!? #wtf #marcosisNohero”. The actress has been outspoken on her political views and expressed opposition on Duterte administration.

Netizens’ reactions are divided on Greta’s support to the Marcoses. Marcos’ loyalists and apologists are applauding Gretchen’s post. People commended her and urged everyone to move on from the past and to rule forgiveness.
However, anti-Marcos protesters criticized the actress’ choice. Some people called her ignorant of Marcos’ crimes.
This is not the first time that Gretchen supported the Marcoses. At the recent elections, the model-actress endorsed Bongbong Marcos when he was vying for the vice presidency.
Meanwhile, Gretchen also joined President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s business delegation in Japan last October. Gretchen is the wife of businessman Tonyboy Cojuangco who is known as one of Marcos’ cronies. However, the Cojuangcos are the immediate family of Corazon Aquino, the wife of former Senator Benigno Aquino – the political nemesis of late President Ferdinand Marcos.
