ABS-CBN publicist Eric John Salut is one of the Filipinos who is not happy with the victory of Senator Manny Pacquiao yesterday against Lucas Matthysse.
After Pacquiao defeated Matthysse via TKO during the 7th round, Eric John Salut couldn’t stop himself from bashing the Senator and his supporters on Twitter.
Eric Salut is a known critic of the Duterte administration, a hint why the publicist was so disappointed after he saw Pacquiao’s victory who’s a close friend of the President.
“Kung ipinatanggol nya ang Panginoon sa pambabalahura ni Duterte, magiging proud pa ako sa kanya! Ano’ng ginagawa nya? Wag ako!” Salut said in his post.
He even warned the supporters of Senator Pacquiao, not to dictate him on what he wants to say.
Salut even labeled Filipino boxing champ “pinaka-b*b*ng senador,” which triggered many solid fans of Pacquiao.
He also pointed out the silence of Pacquiao who’s a Christian Pastor during the criticisms of his political ally, President Rodrigo Duterte against the Bible.
Salut also criticized Pacquiao on Facebook, calling him the laziest senator.
These series of social media post from Salut sparked outrage among Filipino boxing fans.
“Hey @ABSCBN next time wag nyo nang i broadcast yung laban ni Pacquiao kasi ayaw ni Salut” @julia_santos112 said.

A netizen even urged Salut to just be thankful for what Pacquiao has done to the country.
“Anyways you’re not on his position to judge him as a senator and as a Christian especially as an athlete. Instead on focusing on things he have missed why don’t you just thank him enough for the Glory he has brought to the Philippines and also to God!” Netizen @clyde_virtucio said.
Salut’s anger to the Duterte administration should not be the reason to criticize Pacquiao, according to @trinakinss
“WOW. Manny as a public servant is a whole notha story! BUT You can’t change the fact that he brings honor to Philippines! he loves his countrymen, he helps the poor, he loves his family& most esp he honors GOD. kung bitter ka sa buhay mo at galit ka kay Du30 don’t take it out on PACMAN!” @trinakinss told Salut.
Pacquiao is not yet releasing a statement on the criticisms of Salut against him.
