Comedian Michael V slammed the people who used the quote he made for President Rodrigo Duterte to campaign the latter’s daughter Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte in the 2022 Presidential elections.
In an Instagram post, Michael V who’s also known as “Bitoy” called out a Facebook page who supported Mayor Duterte for using his quotes as “campaign material”.
Bitoy was referring to the caption of the painting he made for President Duterte in 2016.
“Mabuhay ang pangulo! Walang iba… s’ya na nga! Wala ka nang magagawa, bayan na ang nagsalita. Sa bawat bagong araw, mayro’ng bagong simula. ‘DAPAT TAMA’ isa-puso sa isip at sa salita.” said Bitoy.
“Kahit sino mang pangulo ang iluluklok ng bayan ‘Di kakayanin ang bigat kundi natin tutulungan. Ang mabuting pagbabago na kanyang sisimulan Tayo ang magpapatuloy hanggang sa katapusan. Awatin na ang dilang masakit magsalita. Pakawalan ang pusong makatao ang gawa,” he added.
The comedian clarified that he’s only encouraging the people to respect the election results during that time and his statement that been circulated on social media was not recent.
“Madalas kong nakikita sa circulation ‘tong quote ko na ‘to which I posted more than 4 YEARS AGO nu’ng nanalo si Digong as President, to encourage people to accept and respect the election results, consistent with the “Dapat Tama” campaign na ginawa ko with GMA Network. To set the records straight, it’s NOT A RECENT POST,” he said.
Bitoy said that he had no problem with people reposting it, however, he discouraged everyone to use his quotes to campaign anyone.
“Please pay attention to the LAST LINE NA ALL CAPS. I have no problem with people using it for the right reason pero HUWAG PO NATING GAMITING CAMPAIGN MATERIAL,” he stated.
Inday Sara Duterte is one of the possible candidates in the 2022 presidential election.
