Mocha Uson slams Toni Gonzaga on BBM remark

 

CEBU – Singer turned political blogger Mocha Uson criticized actress Toni Gonzaga on Wednesday (April 20) following the latter’s statement during a political rally for Bongbong “BBM” Marcos Jr. in Cebu City.

Uson joined netizens in criticizing Gonzaga for promoting a political dynasty and dictatorship, and suggesting that Malacañang—the office of the president—belongs to the Marcos family.

“Hindi maganda yang sinasabi ninyo. Napaghalataan na wala po kayong alam sa public service (What you said is not good. It shows you don’t know anything about public service),” Uson said in a video.

Uson was referring to Gonzaga’s viral statement at the rally on Monday: “Konting-konting panahon na lang, babalik na si BBM sa kanyang tahanan: Ang Malacañang. Kasama niya ang sambayanang Pilipino na naniniwala sa kaniya (Shortly, BBM will be back in his home: Malacañang. He will be joined by Filipinos who believe him)”.

Gonzaga drew netizens’ ire after her comment comment during the political rally in Cebu City on Monday for Marcos and his running mate, Sara Duterte.

Uson, who is a nominee of the Mothers for Change partylist, called out Gonzaga for her comment. “It’s like you are saying that the Marcos are dictators because they made Malacañang their home, and they are now returning to claim it,” Uson said in Filipino.

“Si Pangulong Duterte nga po, ay sinasabi niya na ang Malakanyang ay kanya lamang opisina at hindi po niya ito tahanan. Ito ay pag-aari ng taumbayan (Even President [Rodrigo] Duterte said Malacañang is just his office, not his home. It is owned by the Filipino people),” Uson said in a video.

Uson urged Gonzaga to learn from Philippine President Duterte. Uson is a staunch Duterte supporter. In a previous interview with Expatmedia.net, Uson said she admires Duterte for his “tapang (bravery), malasakit (empathy) and integrity”. FAY/Expat Media
