A netizen’s selfie post with senatorial candidate Bong Revilla Jr. went viral.
KAMI learned that the photo shows the netizen holding his wallet tightly while posing with Revilla. The viral post also has this caption:
“Wag po kayong mag-alala. Wala naman pong nawala. Mahigpit po pagkakahawak ko sa wallet ko,” he wrote.
The caption was meant to be a joke about Revilla being accused of graft and corruption when he was still a senator.
In a report by Interaksyon (authored by Catalina Ricci S. Madarang), the netizen apologized to the supporters of Revilla after he received threats and hate messages from some of the latter’s supporters.
“I am not sorry because this is what I believe. I am not sorry because I actually hate this person. I am not sorry because I don’t want him to win.
“Nevertheless, I am sorry because I stepped down on someone’s feelings and right. I always tell myself that everyone deserves a second chance. I always believe that we have no right to do bad things to the people who have done it or is doing it. And that belief didn’t pop-out of my mind when I was creating this post. And I have to made peace with that,” he posted.
Bong Revilla was detained for four years at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame due to plunder charges. He was later declared not guilty of the charges. His wife, Lani Mercado, is the Mayor of Bacoor, Cavite.
