Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo called out Agot Isidro and Enchong Dee over their remarks regarding the ABS-CBN issue.
In a recent episode of his “Counterpoint” program, Panelo couldn’t help but express his disappointment over the two celebrities after they tweeted their reaction to President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement on ABS-CBN’s franchise. Panelo said he is wondering if Isidro and Dee have any plans to secure a political seat.
He said, “Kayong dalawa Agot Isidro at saka itong batang-bata na kababayan natin na si Enchong Dee na nagbigay na naman ng kanilang mga pahayag, dismayado daw sila. Bakit naman daw itong si Presidente sasabihin na hindi niya papayagan na mag-operate kahit may prangkisa.”
“Mahilig din itong dalawang ito pumasok ‘no. Ano ba kayo? Tatakbo ba kayo congressman? Tatakbo ba kayong konsehal o barangay kapitan?” he added.
Panelo told Isidro and Dee to refrain from meddling in issues without knowing the facts.
He lamented, “Eh hindi pa nga ninyo alam kung ano puno’t dulo basta na lang kayo pumapasok. Papakinggan ninyo muna. Know your facts. Research bago kayo magsalita.”
On Twitter, Isidro reacted to Duterte’s recent statement that he will not allow ABS-CBN to operate even if Congress grants it a franchise. She tweeted, “Siya talaga ang nagpasara sa ABSCBN. Hindi ang kongreso, hindi ang NTC. Si Duterte. Utos niya, simula’t sapul.”
Dee was also frustrated and tweeted, “Andyan ka pa rin?? Hoy Gising! Ang daming Pilipino naghihirap ngayon, yun muna unahin natin. Kahit wala kaming franchise nakakapagbigay serbisyo kami.”
