He made a mistake, he meant Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III, the chairman of ABS-CBN Corporation.
President Rodrigo Duterte last Tuesday once again targeted TV network ABS-CBN for allegedly not airing his campaign ads during the presidential elections.
The President howver corrected himself the third time he reffered to Lopez.
Makinig ka, Gabby Lopez — nag-place ako ng advertisement. Tinanggap ninyo ‘yung pera kong two million para kasi wala akong advertisement, the President said.
“Tanggap nang tanggap kasi kayo ng pera in the name of greed. Tanggap ng pera tapos kung makasalita kayo pati ‘yung Inquirer, kaming mga––kung babuyin ninyo kaming mga taga-gobyerno, you picture us to be the corrupt o ano. Excuse me. Unfortunately, hindi ako ganoon. I would not have survived,” he also added.
How did the star feel? And how did netizens react?
Atty. Gaby Concepcion of Unang Hirit’s Kapuso sa Batas also said her piece on the whole mistaken identity issue by posting on Instagram using a photo with the actor.
