“Maawa ka Panginoon. Ang kapal ng pera. Ano’ng gagawin diyan?” the actress said in the beginning of her tweet.
She then said that the money voters might receive in exchange for their votes might not even be enough for six years.
“Yang perang matatanggap mo, aabot kaya yan ng six years? Hindi siguro,” Kim further wrote in her tweet.
The actress then wondered on why such things are happening, adding that while life is hard, people should still choose the right candidate.
“Bakit nagkakaganito? Mahirap nga ang buhay pero dapat doon tayo sa tama. Wag tayo sa marumi. At saka ang perang matatanggap ninyo ay madali lang maubos yan,” Kim said in her tweet.
Kim is a vocal supporter of VP Leni Robredo and has been actively helping in her campaign.

She is known as "Chinita Princess" in the entertainment industry. She was dubbed the "Princess of Philippine Movies and Television". She is in a relationship with actor Xian Lim.
Recently, she took to Instagram and shared a video of her campaign experience, particularly during the miting de avance. In the video, one could see how she encountered a bus full of BBM supporters, wearing the candidate's campaign color. The actress was flashing the L or Leni sign, while those on the bus could be seen flashing the peace or the BBM sign. Kim could be seen smiling as she engages with BBM supporters.
Last week, Kim was once again subjected to bashing after she posted a question through a tweet. Her question was in relation to the answer of the camp of former Senator Bongbong Marcos as regards the challenge of VP Leni Robredo for a debate. In her question, Kim asked why it's always the spokesperson of BBM who answers questions and faces the media.
