According to columnist Jobert Sucaldito, Senator Manny Pacquiao has forbidden stand-up comedians from impersonating his mother, Mommy Dionisia.
KAMI learned about Jobert’s comments about the issue from his article on Bandera.
Jobert said that Manny should have kept his mother out of the public eye if he did not want her to be impersonated.
“We would like to understand where Manny is coming from dahil ina niya iyon pero sa ganang amin naman, if he doesn’t want his mom to be impersona-ted dahil sobra nga ang pagka-character nito, pagsabihan niya ang nanay niya to behave accordingly. Or if not, alisin niya ito sa public eye.”
He also explained that there is nothing wrong with impersonation as long as it is not below the belt.
“Kasi, kahit saan man sa mundo, ang impersonation is the highest form of flattery. Ang dapat sanang i-pinakiusap niya ay huwag gamitin ang character ng nanay niya in a bad manner, yung below the belt na. Baka doon ay magkakasundo pa kami.”
“Tama lang na dapat ay huwag below the belt dahil ibang usapan na iyon. Kahit sinong anak ay magagalit pag binaboy na ang pagkatao ng mahal niya sa buhay. Pero yung acting echos ni Mommy D ay hindi naman alarming, di ba? It’s just so much fun dahil ganoon naman talaga ang nanay niya eh. Kaya huwag sanang manipis si Manny.”
Jobert also had this to say about Manny’s life as a politician.
“Eh siya nga eh, parang comedy ang naging takbo ng ibang parte ng buhay niya. Yung pagiging senador niya from nowhere ay parang comedy lang ang dating, di ba? Ha! Ha! Ha! Iyon na lang dapat ang ipagpasalamat niya. Lalo siyang sumikat dala ng pag-impersonate ng ilang artists sa kanya.”
KAMI is hoping that Jobert and Senator Pacquiao would be able to talk to each other about this issue.
