Actor Baron Geisler criticized businessman and philanthropist Francis Leo Marcos, calling him ‘delusional’ for claiming that he’s part of one of the most powerful clans in Northern Luzon.
Geisler, in a vlog called the “Mayaman Challenge” launched by Marcos as “not funny”.
“Francis Leo Marcos, na hindi ka tunay (na Marcos)… nakakahiya kang tao, you are delusional, siguro humingi ka ng dispensa eventually, makukulong at makukulong ka eventually, ang kagandahan lang nito, oo nakakatulong ka pero pwede namang gawing tahimik at hindi puro yabang, kasi marami tayo diyan hindi lang ikaw ang tumutulong, may mga tahimik na taong tumutulong,” Geisler said.
The actor then said that Francis Leo was seeking for attention, especially to the members of the Marcos clan who already disowned him.
He suggested that Francis Leo should help the people silently instead of boasting it on social media because what he’s doing is not funny anymore.
“Nakakadiri ka, sa mga taong katulad namin na lahat pantay pantay pero pinapakita mo na magbibigay kami ng bigas, magbibigay kami ng ganito… mahiya ka sa kaluluwa mo, hindi lang naman ikaw ang gumagawa niyan dahil marami, at yung mayaman challenge is a delusional attempt to make you popular,” he said.
“It’s disgusting as a human being to watch you, do that to people who are having a hard time right now so you’re just using their weaknesses now so you can be popular, you are a disgusting, disgrace to the Marcoses and to the Filipinos,” he added.
Geisler also criticized his friend Barangay 413, Sampaloc Manila Chairman Andrew “Kanto Boy” Lopez for being part of Francis Leo’s Mayaman Challenge.
“Pare wala akong respeto ‘sayo kahit kumpare kita, nakakahiya ka bilang chairman o ano man, nakakahiya ka, for being part of that,” he said.
“Ayusin niyo yung character niyo, pakainin niyo yung mga tao ng walang halong yabang,” he added.
According to the actor, it’s already obvious that people involved in the ‘Mayaman Challenge’ are just trying to become famous for their future political plans.
As of writing, Francis Leo Marcos is not yet releasing a response to the criticisms of Geisler.
Francis has been accused of pretending to be a part of the Marcos family and as a nephew of former President Ferdinand Marcos; however, several members of the influential clan already disowned the businessman.
There are also rumors that the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) was already investigating the people involved in the Mayaman Challenge.
“Ang daming malilikot ang utak ngayon, kasi ngayon yung mga scams, ‘yung mga phishing dumadami… may mga nagpo-project pa nga dito na kunwari ay namimigay sila ng mga bigas tapos ay icha-challenge nila yung isang class ng society para mag donate din, ‘yun pala ang end goal is to ask for donations na itatago niya rin pala at hindi ipamimigay,” Victor Lorenzo, head of NBI cybercrime division said.
