Celebrities voice out dismay over Duterte’s ‘Shoot them dead’ statement, call out NBI’s summoning of Vico Sotto

“Patayan agad agad ang pinagusapan? Ano ba yan. Di ba pwedeng… pan de sal, pansit, bitamina nalang?”


MANILA – Showbiz personalities joined other netizens in expressing concern over the ongoing crisis brought about by the COVID-19 lockdown.

In a tweet, actress Agot Isidro said, “People are hungry. People are sick. People are dying. And you talk about shooting them dead??? It’s a fracking HEALTH CRISIS!”

Isidro reacted to President’s Duterte’s public address Wednesday evening, calling on state security forces to shoot dead anyone “who creates trouble” during the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

Duterte’s statement came hours after 21 urban poor residents of sitio San Roque, barangay Bagong Pag-Asa were arrested for demanding food-aid from government.

TV personalities also expressed dismay over the National Bureau of Investigation’s summoning of Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto for allegedly violating quarantine protocols.
