Stars react to Mocha Uson’s resignation

MANILA, Philippines — Celebrities have mixed feelings on the recent resignation of controversial blogger and sexy star Mocha Uson from her post as Assistant Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).

Mocha said her resignation is a sacrifice because she claimed that some lawmakers are delaying the deliberation of the PCOO budget because of her. 

Nonetheless, Mocha vowed that her resignation was not the end and even hinted that she will run in the senate or congress.

“Dadalhin ko ang laban sa Senado at Kongreso. Hindi ito katapusan ng laban. Umpisa pa lamang po ito,” she said.

Actress Aiko Melendez, through her Facebook account, said that Mocha would have gained her respect if she resigned for the right reasons. 

“But running for a public post and seeking revenge by being elected is a stupid statement. You run because You want to help the less fortunate ones. You run because you want to be a servant to the public! And you don’t run for revenge. Don’t use the people for any of your agenda. Again I don’t hate Mocha i just don’t like what she is doing,” the actress said.

“One class act would be is to resign, be humble and admit all the humiliation You caused our Government. Apologize to the PWD for mocking them. Then if that happens maybe i can reconsider and have you in my list for senator,” she added.

In another post, Aiko said having millions of followers on Facebook does not give someone a license for public office.

“Having 5m followers in Facebook doesn’t give you a license to run for public office. Otherwise ang dami na naten sa FB ang elected officials now. Di naman bumoboto ang lahat sa Facebook. So don’t make that as a basis to run for any position. #Resign #Respect,” she said.





Meanwhile, actress Agot Isidro shared a news report from The Philippine Star that said: "Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson:  I will make the sacrifice. I've made the decision to resign"

“Dearie, we made the ultimate sacrifice while you were in office. Anoba,” Agot wrote.

Comedienne Ethel Booba said Mocha resigned because the filing of candidacy is near.

“Malapit na ang filing of candidacy kasi. Charot!”

“Pag magreresign kayo antayin nyo muna makuha ang 13th month pay. 3 to 6 months pa naman ang back pay. Charot!” she wrote in another post.

Actress-host Bianca Gonzalez couldn’t agree more on Ethel’s statement as she shared the comedienne’s post with her own comment: “Ethel serving real talk!” 

Spoken word artist and actor Juan Miguel Severo shared a news report saying that Mocha has resigned. He captioned the post: "OH MY GOD YES."

In another post, he said: “Masyado talaga tayong maagang magbunyi minsan e. Kakainternet ko lang, pasensya na. 'Wag na lang natin siyang iboto pls.”

Indie actress Chai Fonacier also shared a report of Mocha’s resignation saying: “Somebody throw her in outer space.”

“Chos. Tapos di naman makapasok sa Twitter. Mag aral ka muna para talagang ‘patas.’ Simulan mo sa kinder, ayusin mo GMRC mo,” she wrote in another post. 

In a question and answer portion on his Facebook account, Ogie Diaz answered a question if he will vote for Mocha once she decided to run.

“Oy, baka fake news yan, ha? Pero honestly? Hindi po. Ang iboboto ko po ay yung hindi ginagawang katatawanan ang mga may kapansanan, yung pinagkakaisa at hindi pinag-aaway-away ang mga Pilipino,” he said.

Meanwhile, singer Jim Paredes posted a photo on how to vote Mocha in the upcoming elections by shading her name, and not put a circle, beside it.
