- Ogie Diaz spoke up about the reactions of some netizens to the results of the polls
- Some people called the other voters “bobo” for electing “corrupt” officials
- The actor then expressed that everyone must accept the results
Ogie Diaz took a swipe at some netizens who are bashing the voters of winning Senatorial candidates and even calling them “fools.”
KAMI learned that a lot of angry comments flooded social media, especially since the candidates who have “issues” are poising to take Senate seats.
Because of this, Ogie posted a long message on Facebook, questioning why some people accused other voters of being “bobo.”
The celebrity pointed out that everyone was given a chance to vote and he also emphasized that the preferences of people vary.
“Porke sila ang nanalo, bobo at tanga na ang mga botante? Di ka naman inalisan ng karapatang bumoto. Nagkataon lang na sa suma total, yung mga hindi nyo ibinoto ang mas maraming nakuhang boto,” he quipped.
“Paulit-ulit nyo mang sabihang bobo at tanga ang mga sinasabi nyong bumoto sa ‘trapo,’ ‘magnanakaw’ at ‘artista lang,’ masakit man pakinggan, ang buwelta pa din naman nila ay, ‘ayan, diretso nga sa inidoro,’ he added.
Ogie suggested that instead of bashing the voters, the Filipino citizens must have to watch how the winning Senatoriables will do their duties and responsibilities.
He stressed that the public has already decided and everyone must just wish that the newly-elected leaders will be honest throughout their term.
“Subaybayan mo na lang ang journey nila bilang Senador. Kung nagpakitang-gilas, purihin din ninyo. Kung hindi, sitahin ninyo. Let’s all wish them to be the best, the brightest and the most honest senators,” he wrote.
“For now, kalma ka na, wala nang magagawa, andyan na yan. Let’s all move on. Kung ayaw mo na sa Pilipinas, google mo yung ‘migrate to...’ at mamili ka kung saan mo gustong tumira na,” he concluded.
