TV host and showbiz columnist Lolit Solis gave her comment on the issue between Jennylyn Mercado and former Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Deputy Administrator Arnell Ignacio.

A few days ago, Ignacio who’s a known supporter of President Duterte gave advice to Mercado who became vocal on giving comments about politics.

“Payo lang, wag niyo na pasukin ang hindi ninyo linya. You have very successful careers dahil mahusay kayo sa linyang pag aartista,” said Ignacio.

“Do not ever think the power of popularity will instantly translate into mastery of the political jungle.
Wawasakin ninyo mga careers ninyo,” he added.

Solis in an Instagram post said that she’s not siding with anyone, however, she gave an advice to the Kapuso actress that she must be careful about giving comments about issues.

“Wala ako gusto kampihan, siguro iyon lang dapat sa mga artista natin lalo pa nga at bawat sabihin nila madali pick up at isulat, medyo dahan dahan sa issues. Tama, dapat vigilant, dapat may boses, pero pag sa lahat sinalihan mo wala ng premium iyon boses mo, ordinary na lang,” Solis said.

“Kung ako si Vinia dapat iyon ituro niya kay Jennylyn , choose your battle, hindi iyon sali ng sali. Dapat pagsali mo, wow, matutuwa ako dahil ang taas ng premium mo, at iyon pagsali mo sa issue ko nakatulong. Pero iyon basta banat ng banat lang, iyon na nga, tama si Arnel magiging para kang aktibista na salita ng salita dahil lang anti ka kaya hindi mo nakikita iyon kabilang side. Sino ba gusto gayahin ni Jennylyn Mercado, si Angel Locsin?” she added, referring to columnist and publicist Vinia Vivar who defended Mercado in her column.

According to her, if Mercado wanted to be like Locsin, the actress should also start to help other people.

“Ilan na ba nabigay ni Jennylyn Mercado na PPE, face mask o face shields? Nagpakain na ba siya ng mga Frontliners tulad ni Marian Rivera ? Pinuntahan na ba niya mga drivers na nagugutom? Unahin niya iyon, huwag iyon puro twitter o facebook ang ginagawa niya, at pagtatanong, ayaw ni Arnel Ignacio,” she said.

Mercado defended her decision to be vocal on some issues about politics, saying that she’s also a taxpayer and it’s her right to air her opinions freely.

“May qualification ba dapat bago ka magkaro’n ng karapatan na magkomento sa mga isyung panlipunan? Hindi ba sapat na mamayan ka ng Pilipinas at nagbabayad ka ng buwis? Bakit kung kailan pandemya na lahat tayo ay apektado saka ang iba ay pilit na pinatatahimik?” she wrote.
