- Vice Ganda went viral after his photos with Imee Marcos surfaced online
- His friend Kris Aquino shared on social media her thoughts on the controversy
- The comedian also denied the accusation that he is endorsing Imee for the Senate
Photos of Vice Ganda and Imee Marcos at an airport in Ozamiz City have gone viral, with some netizens accusing the comedian of endorsing the Senate candidate.
KAMI learned that Vice’s friend, Kris Aquino, whose family has a longstanding political rivalry with the Marcos clan, took to social media to share her thoughts about the viral photos.
According to Kris, she respects other people’s choice to support whoever politician they want to support because she wants to uphold democracy, although she stated that she does not think that Vice is actually endorsing Imee.
The Queen of All Media added that she loves the people who her sons love – and Bimby very much loves Vice.
“Almost home. i was told i was tagged many times today... on purpose, i’ve stayed away from political discourse because if i cannot help bring a better understanding of a given situation, and if i’ll only add noise, BEST FOR ME TO STAY QUIET.
“i’m respectful of a person’s right to choose who they’ll stand with because i was brought up to uphold democracy...i saw the pics & personally didn’t feel it was early campaigning. di nya kailangan magsalita ako kasi millions ang followers & defenders nya, di ko lang trip na intrigahin pa kami; life’s too short para ma stress.
“BIMB wholeheartedly loves his tito vice @praybeytbenjamin... kuya josh is a tito Willie (Revillame) loyalist- i’m being #real, we have FREEDOM of choice in our home. Pag minahal ng mga anak ko, mahal ko rin. Good night,” Kris wrote.
Vice has also broken his silence on the issue, denying that he endorses Imee as a senator.
“May mga taong ginagalit ang mga sarili nila dahil sa kasinungalingang pinaniniwalaan nila na sila lang din naman ang may likha!”
“Ok para sa mga fans ko na nagtatanong. Wala akong pakelam kung anung iteniraryo ni Imee Marcos sa Ozamis nung nakasabay ko sya sa eroplano. Nagpunta ko dun para mang aliw ng mga taga Ozamis City. Di para magendorso ng kahit sinong pulitiko. Di ako endorser ng mga Marcos!”
“So dahil sa picture na to supporter na agad ako ni Imee ?! Di pa pwedeng supporter ako nung mamang naka puti dun sa likod?! Lol,” Vice tweeted.
In an earlier report by KAMI, Kris stated on social media that she has already moved on from desiring to go back to the Kapamilya network.
The actress-host has also addressed her health condition, which got worse as a trusted friend allegedly stole her savings worth millions.
The rumor is that it was Nicko Falcis, her business manager, who betrayed Kris and took away the millions she saved for her children – Josh and Bimby.
