Celebrities, personalities react as Pres. Rodrigo Duterte said that he can die happy as he ‘dismantled’ oligarchy without declaring Martial Law

“Ganun nila nilaro ang bayan ko. Kaya ako mamatay, mahulog ang eroplano, I am very happy. Alam mo bakit, without declaring martial law I dismantled the oligarchy that controlled the economy and the Filipino people,”

During his speech in Jolo, Sulu, President Rodrigo Duterte said that he can already die happy knowing that he has ‘dismantled’ oligarchy in the country which supposedly controlled the country’s economy and the people.

“Ganun nila nilaro ang bayan ko. Kaya ako mamatay, mahulog ang eroplano, I am very happy. Alam mo bakit, without declaring martial law I dismantled the oligarchy that controlled the economy and the Filipino people,” Duterte said.

[That’s how they played my country. That’s why if I’ll die, if the plane crashes, I am very happy. You know why, without declaring martial law I dismantled the oligarchy that controlled the economy and the Filipino people]

Duterte made the statement after the Congress denied ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal. Thus, people assumed that Duterte is referring to ABS-CBN in the speech.

In line with this, celebrities and other personalities expressed their reactions on social media.

However, after getting flak, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that Duterte’s tirades are not for the Lopezes, but for Lucio Tan, Manny Pangilinan, and the Ayala clans instead.


For the record, Duterte had already forgiven Lucio Tan, Manny Pangilinan, and the Ayalas. He also apologized to these businessmen and allowed them to continue their business.
