ANGEL Locsin has no current or upcoming showbiz project but she’s always very much in the news because of her philanthropic activities helping out those affected by the corona lockdown. But it’s quite apparent that you can not please everyone even if you do positive things. Now, Angel is in the news again as someone threatened to kill her and blow up ABS-CBN, offering a reward of P200 million to whoever would succeed in doing it.
We all know this should not be taken seriously since no one would pay such a ridiculous amount for killing a celebrity. It is obviously just a prank. But since there isn’t much worthy news stories these days, even such pranks hit the headlines and given importance by news outlets.
Someone from Davao came up to say that his cellphone was used in making the threat, but he adds that he doesn’t own the Twitter account on which the threat was posted. This is the full statement on Twitter which is apparently just a silly figment of the sender’s imagination:
“Isa ka ba sa mga supporter ni Pangulong Duterte at GMA? Pwes, I will give P200-million sa sinumang mga Duterte at GMA supporters ang makapatay kina Kim Chiu, Coco Martin at Angel Locsin. Makakasama nyo ang NPA para pasabugin ang ABS-CBN Compound.”
The NBI sided with Angel and she wrote about it: “Thank you NBI for reaching out. For now, ipag-pray ko muna tong mga taong to. Ayoko silang pahirapan pa, sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, sa kung anong pwede kong ikaso sa kanila. Pag umulit, hindi ko na sila aatrasan.”
But Angel has other detractors because of her proposal for mass testing. On Twitter, someone lambasted her saying: “Common sense research din paminsan-minsan, wag magmarunong!” While another basher wrote: “Ipagpalagay nating ikaw ang pangulo, Ms. Angel Locsin, tapos meron kang 110 million na tao sa bansa mo at lahat sila nagdedemand ng mass testing. Pero alam mo sa sarili mo na hindi kakayanin ng health care system na meron ka na gawin yun dahil limitado lang ang kaya nyong mai-test. Ano ang gagawin mo? San ka kukuha ng 100 million na test kits? We salute you for always helping those people in need in time of disaster. Pero sana kapag nagbibigay kayong mga artista ng sentiments nyo, ginagamitan nyo rin ng UTAK.”
Angel answered back: “Ang lakas ng loob mong magsabi ng common sense eh hindi mo nga alam ang meaning ng “mass” hay. Kung may mass burial ba na gagawin, kasama ka ba sa ililibing bilang buong 110M ng population ang inilalaban mo? Hindi naman, di ba? So anong kinagagalit mo? Kumalma ka.”
The basher was obviously shamed and quickly deleted his statement.
