Duterte has earned a few haters since he ran for the presidency and won by a landslide including members of the movie industry . One of them is movie director Erik Matti.
Following Duterte’s declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao, Matti was one of the critics from the movie industry who went ballistic on social media.
Perhaps, lacking the audacity to speak against the President directly, Matti elected to curse the 16 million voters who voted for Duterte in the May 2016 presidential election instead on Twitter and read:
In case you haven’t read my tweets before, I’ll say it again: “Sa lahat ng bumuto, ‘put@ng ina nyo’! Isa pa: ‘Put@ng Ina nyo'”

The supporters of President Duterte who are active on Twitter, did not let Erik Matti’s cursing slide and went on an offensive.
Netizen Alex Comla told Erik Matti to bid his film making days goodbye.

Meanwhile on Facebook, Duterte supporters have decided to take the retaliation against Director Erik Matti to a higher level after cursing the 16 million people who voted for Duterte by calling for a boycott of Erik Matti’s next project with young actress Liza Soberano, the movie “Darna”.
The move to boycott Erik Matti’s movie with Liza Soberano has been posted on the Facebook page “DuterteSerye” and wrote a caption which you can read below.
“Sorry Liza Soberano. This has nothing to do with you. BUT because of your arrogant Darna director, Filipinos who are supportive of the president might as well NOT WATCH your movie. MINURA NA KAMING LAHAT, TATANGKILIKIN PA RIN NAMIN? ‘WAG NA UY! Kindly tag your family and friends who voted for Digong na minura ng direktor na ito.”
The call for boycott has generated enough traction that it gathered 8,327 shares, 5,540 reactions, 1,400 comments on Facebook.
Eddie Matubaran felt sorry for Liza but he is answering the call for a boycott of Erik Matti’s movie. Naku naging collateral damage c Liza Soberano sa war na ginawa ng director ng movie niya. Patay ngaun ang pelikula mo. Murahin ba naman niya lahat ng mga taga barangay DDS madedemanda talaga xa at ang hatol boycott lahat ng movies at incoming movie pa ng erik na yan.
Jun Diwa remarked: “Ikaw na rin ang nagbaon sa career mo, putanginamong director ka! Kung murahin mo kami parang ikaw ang nagpapalamon sa amin ha? Tignan natin kung may manood pa ng mga movie na gawa mo!”
Yc Ollidrap Hcodrum gave his nod to the boycott call. “Tama!!! At Ng Ma tauhan ang hambog na Erik na Yan!!!
