While most of the Filipinos cheered Senator Manny Pacquiao before his boxing match against Adrien Broner, one prominent writer seems not happy to see the Pinoy champ still prioritizing his sport.
Palanca award-winning writer and Humanitarian activist Ogie Rosa tweeted a message to Senator Manny Pacquiao, saying that he doesn’t like the latter’s ‘fight’ for the Filipino people.
According to him, instead of prioritizing boxing, he should help to address the main issues in his country as a Senator of the Philippines like EJK, corruption, inflation, and poverty.
He even alluded to a certain ‘incompetent’ senator.
“PACQUIAO: Para sa inyo ang laban kong ito! Para sa amin?!? Ang gusto naming laban ay laban sa korupsyon, laban sa EJK, laban sa mataas na presyo ng bilihin, laban sa kahirapan. At higit sa lahat, laban sa absenteeism and incompentence sa senado!” Rosa tweeted.

Pacquiao has been questioned even before by his critics about his ability to become a senator; some also called him incompetent.
The tweet of Rosa received 3.5k reactions from his followers and even shared by OPM artist Jim Paredes.
Paredes received criticisms before after he allegedly celebrated the defeat of Senator Pacquiao against the Australian Boxer Jeff Horn in 2017.
“What a great day!!” Paredes wrote.
Both Rosa and Paredes are both staunch critic of the Duterte administration and using social media to criticize the government and its allies like Senator Pacquiao.
Despite being in old age, Pacquiao was not affected by criticisms threw against him and still willing to continue his career as a boxer despite being elected as a Senator.
Meanwhile, his friends and fans are preparing for a hero’s welcome for the Filipino champ.
