MANILA, Philippines — Celebrities had mixed reactions after President Rodrigo Duterte signed Proclamation 572, revoking the amnesty given to Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on his participation at the Manila Pen Siege and Oakwood Mutiny eight years ago. 

A known Duterte supporter, Kapamilya actor Robin Padilla hosted a live broadcast on his Facebook account on Tuesday, challenging Trillanes to get out of the Senate and face the case. 

“Lumabas ka! Wag kang magtago sa saya ng Senado!” Robin said. 

“Dito po sa loob ay nagtatago ang isang senador na mismong hindi ho sumusunod sa batas. Kami mga ordinaryong tao, kapag may kaso, wala kaming magawa. Kapag sinabi ng pulis na kailangan namin sumama sa kanila, sumasama kami,” Robin added. 

Robin further said that Trillanes should submit himself and wait for the court’s decision.

“Hayaan mong korte ang magdesisyon. ‘Wag mong gawing malaking isyu to. Lahat ng tao dito sa Pilipinas ‘pag may reklamo hinaharap nila. Mahiya naman kayo. Kayo senador, special ba kayo?”

At the end of the broadcast, Robin said Trillanes should go back to prison. While laugh, Robin said he will even send the senator a private massage.

“Ang dami nating problema. Mr. Trillanes, napakarami po nating problema. Simple lang naman ‘to. Kayang-kaya mo to i-solve. Pumunta ka lang sa dati mong kampo at sigurado akong marami ka pang kakilala doon. Kung natatakot ka, sama mo ko pare. I-request mo ko, ‘dun ako sa tabi mo, mamasahihin kita,”

Duterte gave Robin an absolute pardon in connection with his illegal possession of firearms case in 1994. 

Talent manager and Kapamilya actor Ogie Diaz also shared his reaction on the issue, saying: “Ganun talaga, Sen. Trillanes. Di mo napaghandaan ang ‘ganti,’ eh. Na-checkmate ka ni Pangulong Duterte.”

“Ipaglaban mo na lang kung ano ang nararapat at kung paano mo ito malulusutan. Lagi mo na lang isipin na kanya-kanyang panahon lang yan. Umiikot lang naman ang mundo,” he added.

The comedian hopes that the prices of commodities will now become lower and some issues surrounding the administration of Duterte will be solved, now that Trillanes’ amnesty has been revoked.

“Sana lang, ngayong binawi ang iyong amnesty eh sana, kasabay na rin yan ng pagkawala ng mga bukbok sa bigas, bumaba na ang presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin, mabawasan na ang mga adik, pusher, druglords para di na tumaas ang bilang ng mga ‘nanlaban,’ mabawasan na ang utang ng Pinas, bumaba na ang inflation rate at totoong gumanda na ang ekonomiya ng bansa.”

Meanwhile, singer-actress Agot Isidro posted her sympathy for the senator. She also commended his courage to face the issue.

“Walang neck brace, walang wheel chair, walang coma, walang fentanyl, walang absent, walang mumbling, walang mura. Humaharap na may tapang,” she said of Trillanes on Twitter.
