Action star Robin Padilla dared Otso Diretso candidate and Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano to visit the disputed Spratlys Islands.
KAMI learned that Padilla shared his thoughts on Instagram about the conflict between the Philippines and China.
“Sarilinin natin itong lakad. Lumusob tayo sa Spratlys. Lumusob tayo gayahin natin ang mga Tausug,” he wrote.
The action star also said that he is ready to fight and die for the Philippines and that he has already asked the permission of his wife and children.
“Walang pinakamatamis kundi ang mamatay para sa Inangbayan,” Padilla stated.
However, the actor said that the poor Filipinos should not be involved in the conflict when China fights against the Philippines.
“Pero hindi dapat nating idamay ang buong Pilipinas sa isyu na ito dahil kawawa ang taong bayan lalonang mga mahihirap kapag pinatulan tayo ng ninunong China dito sa mainland Philippines,” he said.
In a previous report by KAMI, Padilla mocked the candidates of Otso Diretso when they planned to visit the disputed Scarborough Shoal. He said that he and former SAP Bong Go are practicing their jetski skills in case their trip pushes through.
KAMI also reported earlier that Otso Diretso candidates Samira Gutoc, Florin Hilbay, Gary Alejano, and Chel Diokno had prepared a jetski in Zambales to urge President Rodrigo Duterte to fulfil his 2016 campaign promise that he would defend the Philippines from China.
