A few days ago, the Teen King of Philippine show business, Daniel Padilla, became an internet meme releasing a derogatory statement against those cannot vote today’s election. He said, “Kon hindi naman kayo botante, wag na mamarunong. Shut up ka na lang”. (If you are not a registered voter, you act like you know everything. Just shut up!).
The phrase has been picked up by the Filipino youth and backfired to him saying “You are not even real singer. Why are you singing? SHUT UP KA NA LANG!”. Since then, the love team has been kept a close eye by concerned citizens.
Just recently, KathNeil, who are also first time voters, posted a photo with the official ballots. This became a subject of ire by many people online.
The election rules clearly states that taken photos of the official ballots is not allowed. If that is taken into account, these celebrities violated the law.
Aside from the said infraction, Kathryn Bernado violate another rule by wearing a Daan Matuwid baller which is not allowed. Any campaign material — posters, T-Shirts, and accessories related to any candidate should not be seen in the voting precinct.
The twitter link posted by ABS-CBN seems already deleted since the post is already viral.
The photo posted by a Facebooker, Mike Lopez, already gathered 26 thousands mixed reactions and 17 thousand shares. The figures are still rising as of this writing.
One of the most controversial questions today’s election is Kathryn’s dilemma for endorsing Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo. Her religious affiliation, Iglesia ni Cristo endorses Rodrigo Duterte and Bongbong Marcos.
As the love team has said, for those who are not concerned with the development of the country, “JUST SHUT UP!”
