Anne Curtis, Dingdong Dantes, other celebrities react to the bill lowering criminal liability to 9 years old

  • Celebrities expressed their disapproval of bill that lowers criminal liability to nine years old.
  • This includes reactions from Bianca Gonzales, Anne Curtis, Dingdong Dantes, Jim Paredes, and Bullet Dumas.

The House of Panel has approved the bill that lowers the minimum age of criminal liability from 15 years old to 9 years old. This has sparked outrage not just from netizens, but also from known showbiz personalities.

Celebrities have expressed their opinions on the move by the government which has drawn dismay and disapproval by many.

Television host Bianca Gonzales may not have tweeted anything regarding the topic, but she has retweeted a message by Carlo Pamintuan stating that jailing 9-year-olds “will not do anything” because the children are just forced to commit the crime due to poverty.

It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis has directly expressed her opposition towards the bill saying that the news saddens her as the kids still have a chance to change their ways.


Another host from It’s Showtime and musician Teddy Corpuz shared a two-part video of kids who experienced law under the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act in 2006.

Actor Dingdong Dantes has agreed to the statement of Atty. Chel Diokno. He added that the children are at the age wherein they are strongly influenced by the adults around them.

He also suggested that the government should focus on creating an environment that will make the youth productive members of the society.

Jim Paredes has described the news as “disgusting”.

He has also questioned the statement of Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo who said that the criminals nowadays are the minors that were used by former delinquents because they grew up that way.

OPM arist Bullet Dumas shared a photo by Plcpd Foundation, Inc. stating that “children are not little adults”.

Justice panel chairperson Salvador Leachon justified the bill, clarifying that it is only to protect the children from being used by syndicates.

“It’s Showtime” comes Home to its Old Studio

“It’s Showtime” comes Home to its Old Studio

  • It’s Showtime hosts returned to their morning studio on Wednesday after the airing of their US tour shows.
  • They explained that they will be temporarily using the old studio as their current setup is being upgraded

It’s pretty undeniable that ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime is one of the this generation’s most watched variety shows in the Philippines. But does anyone remember that it actually premiered as a morning talent program and was aired before the network’s former noontime show, Pilipinas, Game Ka Na Ba?

Along with the change of its time slot in 2012, they have also changed their studio.

On Wednesday, after airing the live telecast of their shows in the United States, the hosts reminisced memories as they surprised viewers by going to a “new” studio. They later revealed that it is actually not something new as it was where they originally taped the morning show.

The original mainstays, namely Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, Kim Atienza, Teddy Corpus, and Jugs Jugueta, expressed how much they actually missed the old setup.

Curtis said that she felt goosebumps when she entered the studio, since it was almost eight years ago when they started there, “Parang nakakakilabot na pumasok dito, kasi para sa mga hindi po nakakaalam, almost eight years ago tayo nag-umpisa dito,”

“Parang bumalik lahat ng alaala, na parang ‘yung first show natin, kinakabahan tayo, kung magugustuhan ba kami ng madlang people. And we’re still here, going strong!”

Karylle went on and explained the real reason why they went back and said that it will only be temporary since their current studio is being renovated.

“Dito muna tayo habang inaayos at lalong pinapaganda ang dati nating tahanan. Talaga naman pinapa-bongga ang studio natin,”

The show will be celebrating its 9th anniversary on October 24.

He expressed his disappointments on class suspensions’ limitations or exclusivity. Most of the time, classes are suspended and applicable only for pre-school and grade school students.

In his tweet, he stated that suspending classes at selected levels is like a confusing joke.

Ayaw nyo yun masaya lahat pag walang pasok ang all levels.
1. Masaya ang mga parents Di sila maghahatid sundo, walang baon.
2. Masaya mga kids kasi they get to chill and have a break from their stressful sked at school.
3. Wala masyado traffic

His tweets drew mixed reactions from Netizens. A Twitter user stated that it’s unfair because while others are safe in their own homes, some needed to travel long distances despite the weather, just to reach school.

Hindi po pwede yun. Kase hindi naman po ganun ka matured mag isip ang mga pre school at elementary students kumpara sa mga highschool at college students. Nakaka gawa kaagad ng paraan ung mga nasa nakaka tanda kumpara sa mas mga bata.

Another netizen thought about the situation of PUJ drivers wherein if there are no classes, their income for the day might be reduced.

Hindi rin. Malungkot ang mga drivers dahil di masyadong bebenta sila dahil students ang main pasahero nila pag school days. Kawawa naman sila. May pamilya silang binubuhay.
