Agot Isidro’s statement has got a lot of netizens and other people thinking. Some, however, have taken it to another level to show their “concern” for the actress.
A netizen, who admitted that she is concerned for Agot, started a campaign on Facebook. Her campaign seeks to gather donations from other netizens so they could provide Agot with food and save her from hunger.
This came after the actress criticized President Rodrigo Duterte and labelled him as a “psychopath” who needs to seek help from a psychiatrist.
The parody post says: “We are now accepting donations for the Kanin Para Kay Agot Program. Tulungan po natin si Madam na huwag magutom. Because we care. Because we can. Do the right thing and DONATE NOW.”
There were netizens who laughed about the post while there were those who took it seriously and commented that it shouldn’t be a laughing matter.
One of the netizens who commented said that we should not ignore the fact that there are many people who were offended by the actress’ statement.
“Are we gonna ignore the fact that while many of you were offended by her, calling the President a ‘psychopath’, lots of the supporters of Presidents are actually doing worst. I don’t know where on earth did they find the courage to ignorantly use her private issues, just to prove that she’s wrong for messing with the President. I’m actually more scared to see people, blinded by their belief that the President can change our way of living. I’m actually hoping that he can, but I can not just passively agree with everything he say or do. That’s ignorance! People are slowly losing their compassion, and it’s sad to witness Filipino people fighting against each other because of their beliefs, when we’re living in the same country, under the same sky.”
On the other hand, many celebrities and officials have also defended the actress.
For instance, Senator Panfilo Lacson agreed with Agot’s statement that if the President wants to go hungry, he can go on that journey alone.
