A netizen lectured Kapamilya actress and Pinoy Big Brother: All In second placer Maris Racal after she complained about why the government prioritized the revival of capital punishment in the country.
In a tweet, Racal questioned why the government called for the revival of capital punishment in the middle of the crisis happening in the country.
Netizen Tio Moreno who saw Racal’s tweet couldn’t stop himself from lecturing the actress on how the Philippine government function.
He explained that the government of the Philippines has three branches, the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judiciary.
Moreno also pointed out that the government could multitask and handle the pandemic and revival of the capital punishment at the same time.
“The Executive is composed of the President & Vice President. The Constitution grants the President authority to appoint his Cabinet,”
“The Legislative branch is divided into the Senate and the House of Representatives. They are authorized to make laws, alter, and repeal them.”
“The Judiciary is made up of the Supreme Court and the lower courts. This branch will tell you about the controversies involving rights and this identifies whether or not there has been a grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction on the gov’t.”
“That being uttered, we can say that the government can MULTITASK.”
The netizen said that despite the pandemic happening in the country, the government should not stop functioning normally.
“Just because there is c0rona virus doesn’t mean they need to stop with their functions. If we will follow your idea, then you are saying that we should not jail violators, we should not sanction terr0rists, we shouldn’t allow lawbreakers to be held accountable on their mishaps because we need to focus on C0VID19,”
“If you don’t know what the government has done to combat C0VID19, please review this link from Day 1 and thank me later: http://www.covid19.gov.ph/covid-19-timeline/ A graduate from PBB house can’t do this and I am pretty much sure you’re not aware of that,”
According to Moreno, he wished that he was a classmate of Racal so he could teach her about the government.
“Maris, I was in the 4th grade when I learned how the government works. How I wish we were classmates back then so I can give you free tutorials. Mag aral ka please, dami mo ng pera kaso lang bobita ka,”
Moreno’s post gained 100,000 shares as of writing.
This is not the first that Racal criticized the government and received a backlash.
Last April, the family of Maris said that they’re going to file charges against the critics of the actress.
“Feel free to take screenshots and send it to me. I might not reply because I’m flooded with messages but thank you. We’re taking legal actions on this. Apparently, spreading rumors can really put you in trouble. Good luck guys!” the sister of Maris said.
