Motivational speaker Rendon Labador directly addressed actor and director Coco Martin to leave Quiapo immediately after some vendors complained about the decreasing sales of their business because of the show.
It can be remembered that several vendors claimed that they were affected by the taping of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo because the production team allegedly closed some parts of the said place to ensure the security of the casts.
“Dear FPJ, Batang Quiapo! kung mag shooting kayo wag naman araw araw bumababa sales namin pag nanjan kayo eh haystttt coco hanggang kelan nanaman kaya tong palabas mo,” one of the vendor said.
Rendon then told Coco not to be a thick face and leave Quiapo immediately so the vendors could do their business normally again.
“Hindi pa ba tumitigil? Tigas ng muka mo COCO MARTIN, kailangan pa bang sabihan kita ng dalawang beses?” Labador said.
“Nakaka abala ka na sa mga NEGOSYANTENG VENDORS natin diyan sa Quiapo. Kung hindi mo babayaran lahat ng damages at losses sa pag gamit mo ng lugar, umalis alis ka na diyan. Para sa PUBLIKO at MAMAYANG PILIPINO YAN!!! Ginawa mong pansarili mo lang? Hindi ka batang Quiapo, isa kang “anak ng tokwa”.
As of writing, Coco and his production time have yet to respond to the complaint of the vendors.
Meanwhile, some netizens defended the actor from Rendon, saying that the latter was only jealous because he was not invited to join the show, unlike other influencers who were already cast to be part of Batang Quiapo.
