Actress Angelica Panganiban apologized to one of his follower for voting for President Rodrigo Duterte in 2016.

On April 1, Panganiban joined other celebrities from criticizing Duterte and the government for the subpoena sent by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

The actress questioned why the government was trying to target working public officials like Sotto. At the same time, politicians like Senator Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel III, who became infamous for visiting Makati Medical Center on March 24, despite waiting for his COVID-19 results, remain free.

“Wala silang mapag initan. Si mayor vico talaga? Kung sino pa may natutulong at maayos na sistema, siya pa kakasuhan? HANEP! Eh nasan na yung nagkalat ng virus sa makati med? So far kasi yun palang nagagawa niya. Ikalat ang virus. Mapapamura ka na lang pala talaga,” Panganiban said.

A follower then asked Panganiban if she already woke up from being ‘hypnotize’ by the Duterte magic in 2016.

The actress then made a surprising reply, confirming that she’s not a DDS anymore and apologized to the fan who asked her the question.

“Yes. Nakakalungkot. Pero oo. Patawarin niyo ko,” she said.

Duterte already denied that he’s involved on the NBI’s probe against Sotto.

“Yung kay Mayor Vico, isang beses lang ako nagsalita, yung nagproclaim ako ng [state of] emergency. Sabi ko, ‘wag ito, wag yan,'” he said.

“Pagkatapos nito, wala na, nandito lang ako. Wala akong pakialam sa operation ng NBI, kung anong gusto nila. Karamihan diyan mga abogado yan,” he added.

Panganiban is one of the celebrities who actively campaigned for Duterte in the 2016 presidential election.

“Walang krimen, walang magnanakaw, walang kababuyan kung ang mamumuno ng bansa natin ay hindi natatakot ayusin at linisin ang Pilipinas. babae ako ang ang pangulo ko ay si Duterte. (Thank you Byaheng DU30 for yesterday. Mabuhay kayo.” Panganiban said.

She even joined ‘Byaheng DU30’ event that led by Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio.

“Bought the slurpee cup for 25pesos. Kahit ubos na ang slurpee ng 7/11. Makakuha lang ako ng #Duterte souvenir, nawala ko siya bago umalis ng Bacolod. Pero sa di inaasahang pagkakataon, nakita ko sila @indaysaraduterte kilig na kilig ako. Nilapitan ako ng ibang staff na mag pa picture daw sila Mayor Sara tumayo ako sa upuan ko at excited na makita sila masayang masaya lang yung energy ng lahat. Inaya pa nila ko kumain kasama sila. Nahiya na lang ako. Kahit na gusto ko sila makausap at ipagmalaki na gustong gusto ko si Duterte,” Panganiban said in her past Instagram post.

“Sa sandaling yun, lalo akong humanga sa kanya. To think na lahat ng kasama niya ay volunteers lang. Walang bayad. At kinataba ng puso ko ang sincere na pagkamay sakin ni @indaysaraduterte at pinasalamatan ako sa pag suporta sa kanila,” she added.
