Former senator Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr. has recently been riled by the netizens, after seeing him dancing in a campaign ad, as others keep on bashing him.
Despite being criticized, Bong Revilla still feels the love and support of his supporters, based on the surveys.
Recently, the netizens have been riling up one commercial where he was dancing to a “budots song” playing in the background, which garnered different reactions that had been spread on social media.
Others were also throwing other issues at him.
Bong Revilla's political ad, to me, looks like he's not campaigning for votes at all; but rather mocking his critics that despite hundreds of millions he had stolen, he's out of jail, very much alive and kicking, ready to steal again and again and again and again, ad infinitum. https://t.co/EocFgfTTBc

Listen. If you will vote for Bong Revilla, you hate the Philippines and you are the enemy of this country. You can't change my mind.

Bong Revilla's stupid Budots Campaign ad PLAYED 2X during the commercial break.
Imagine how a 15-second commercial slot costs? It's more than Php 500,000; but it played for 30 secs+on a primetime slot so roughly above Php 1M.
How can you not question where he gets his money….

Open letter to Bong Revilla:
Everyone who filed taxes last April

We live in a world where a Gretchen Ho is a destabilizer and a Mocha Uson is a model citizen, where Chel Diokno is struggling to even compete while Bong Revilla is a sure win. God save the Philippines.

But the former senator said that he cannot easily be crashed. Instead, he even gets more handsome because of issues thrown at him.
“Si Bong Revilla, mandirigma, habang nasasaktan, lalong tumatapang, habang sinisiraan, lalo ako po(mo)pogi,” he said in an interview by Abante.
An arrest warrant was issued for Bong Revilla in 2014 due to his involvement in Napoles’ pork barrel scam. But now, he was acquitted of plunder charges and was released in 2018.
Though there were a lot of netizens still accusing him, he stands that he did not steal money from the people.
And he also defends himself that he doesn’t need the money because he has his own earning as an actor. And now, he just wants to give service to the people.
