A certain netizen named Loy Abuhan has taken to social media to tell actor Dingdong Dantes to take off his Navy uniform because he just lose his right to wear it.
Abuhan was reacting to the actor who was quoted that the anti-terrorism bill is also causing fear from abuse of power because of uncertainties and lack of dialogue.

Moving forward, Abuhan opened the FB post by sharing the exact words the actor uttered when he was sworn in as a Navy Reservist.
IN THE NAVY
“I, José Sixto Raphael González Dantes III, do solemnly swear that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Republic of the Philippines, that I will serve it honestly and faithfully against all its enemies whomsoever; that I will support and defend the Constitution of the Philippines; that I will obey the orders of the President of the Philippines and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the rules and articles of war; and that I impose this obligation upon myself voluntarily, without mental reservation or purpose of evasion. So help me God.” 🤚
Abuhan said he wants to remind the actor the oath of allegiance every soldier must take upon enlistment, the same oath he took just recently when he was promoted to the rank of Lt. Commander in the Philippine Navy.
‘Let me remind you Dingdong, that is the oath of allegiance that every soldier MUST take upon enlistment in the Armed Forces of the Philippines and it was the very same oath you took last January 2020 when you were promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander in the Philippine Navy.’
Abuhan called it unfortunate that Dantes’ recent stand on the anti-terror law poses a grave danger and risk to the lives of his countrymen in case of a terrorist attack. He went on to explain why Dantes’ anti anti-terror bill statement endangers fellow Filipinos.
‘It is very unfortunate, however, that your recent stand on the Anti-Terror Law poses a grave danger and risk to the lives of your countrymen in case of a terrorist attack. Why? It questions your loyalty to the President who is the Commander in Chief and it undermines your obedience to the chain of command. Your stand compromises your ability to fight and kill the enemy both foreign and domestic.’
Abuhan remarked that it may be okay for Dantes to say such statements in his TV roles as an actor but it is a whole different thing as a Navy reservist.
‘You might have uttered these words as an actor in the movie industry, but remember, you are now a ‘Seabee’. In the Navy, you are trained to keep silent and “obey first before you complain.” ⚓️’
Abuhan punctuated the FB post by telling actor Dingdong Dantes to take off his Navy uniform because he just lose his right to wear it. He said Dantes has betrayed the country.
‘Hubarin muna yang uniporme ng NAVY wala kanang karapatang magsuot niyan!! You are committed TREASON! Traydor ka sa NAVY!!’
