Otso Diretso candidate and human rights lawyer Chel Diokno expressed his gratitude to the celebrities who support his Senatorial bid. KAMI learned that Diokno called his celebrity supporters as “CHELebrities.”
“Malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa lahat ng mga celebrity, ang tawag ko sa kanila ay mga CHELebrity, na nag-endorse sakin either directly or indirectly,” Diokno said in a statement, as reported by the ABS-CBN News (author Katrina Domingo).
“Palagay ko makakatulong 'yan sa awareness dahil marami rin silang following, at maaaring pag malaman din ng mga fans nila ay maging fan ko din sila,” he added.
Through Twitter, Diokno thanked his celebrity supporters like actors Dingdong Dantes, Enchong Dee, Pepe Herrera, Jaime Fabregas, and Bianca Gonzalez.
Diokno also mentioned musicians Ebe Dancel, Noel Cabangon, Bullet Dumas, and Johnoy Danao.
In a previous report by KAMI, Diokno responded to President Rodrigo Duterte’s comparison between him and OPM folk singer Freddie Aguilar. The Otso Diretso bet said that Aguilar is a great singer, but the Senate is not a “karaoke bar.”
Born on February 23, 1961, Jose Manuel “Chel” Diokno is a human rights lawyer and the founding dean of the De La Salle University College of Law. He is the son of the late Senator Jose W. Diokno who was detained during the martial law.
