Hollywood actor Steven Seagal is in town and told local reporters he is staying a bit longer to film a TV series called “General Commander”.
In addition to showcasing the beautiful panoramas in the country, the TV series also wants to feature local actors in some of the scenes to be shot in the country.
The TV series will revolve around the theme about corruption, crime and illegal drugs.
When Seagal was asked if he is not concerned about his safety in the midst of the prevailing issues in the country like illegal drugs and killings, this is what the actor has to say to reporters:
I am big fan of your government and I think Duterte is a very good President and has been instrumental in making the country a safer place and you know what he has done, he’s very good in terms of getting the control back for the people. I don’t feel like this is a dangerous place. I think this is a place that is up and coming.
Seagal’s comment on Duterte has been getting good reactions from Filipino fans but many saw this as an opportunity to take a swipe at Duterte’s critics, including News5.
Eduard Gabriel says: “Kala siguro nila malilinlang nila ang mga taong bayan sa mga fake news nila hahaha
VERY GOOD president kaya ang presidente natin!! At tama naman talaga na Philippines is a safe place and not dangerous at all”
Gherald Piad laments: “Buti pa ang foreigner na appreciate yung ginagawa ng gobyerno at ni PRRD,samantalang kayong mga pilipino na dapat mangunang pumuri sa Bansa puro pa pangungutya ang inaatupag.,!!mga utak TALANGKA KAU.,!!😤”
