Netizens praised actress Rita Avila after refusing to cut in line at the airport despite being offered the opportunity.
According to her Facebook post on March 6, Avila said airport staff offered to let her cut in line, but she refused.
Her reason was that she absorbed that behavior from former Vice President Leni Robredo.
“Nagmagandang loob yung taga-airport. Pinapaalis kami sa pila para mauna na kami. Hindi kami pumayag. Mana kami kay Atty. @lenirobredo eh, pila kung pila,” she wrote.
Avila added, “Ganyan dapat ang mga Pilipino, may DISIPLINA at nasa TAMA. Hindi yung pasaway, singitan, unahan. Nakakahiya.”
Netizens praised Rita and commented, “The design is very Atty. Leni Robredo.”
Avila supported Robredo’s presidential run last election, and she received backlash for doing so.
In a message posted on her Facebook page, the actress addressed those angry with her for openly supporting VP Leni against her detractors.
She said that it was better to uplift goodness than to propagate evil.

The veteran actress wrote, “Kung nagpopost ako ng katotohanan para sa mga walang alam at mali ang alam. D ako tulad ng iba na hahayaang mamayagpag ang mali at kasinungalingan…Kahit ganyan kayo, tinatrato ko pa din kayo bilang tao. Madalas ay mahinahon akong sumagot sa ilan sa inyo pero minsan kelangan din kayong tapatan dahil sobra kayong masama…D man tayo lahat perpekto ay mas magandang nakaaangat ang kabutihan kesa sa kasamaan. — Rita.”
Avila stars in GMA’s figure skating series ‘Hearts On Ice‘.
