On Facebook, movie director and veteran actor Manuel Castaneda said he is thinking of voting for Leni Robredo this May, instead of his original choice.
Instead of getting bashed for his statement, Direk Manny’s FB post has been met with laughter among his followers.
If you’ve been following Direk Manny on Facebook, you will have known by now he is a staunch Duterte supporter and a rabid anti-Leni Robredo.
So what gives?
Actually, Direk Manny confessed that all the candidates for Presidents that he voted for in the past since 1992 election lost. He said he felt his vote is cursed.
Direk Manny figured Robredo supporters won’t get mad at him since he is voting for their presidential bet and at the same time, BBM supporters or any other candidate because they will be spared from his cursed.
Here are the reactions of netizens as shown in the comments.
This Leni supporter appealed to Direk Manny to stick to his original choice.
Stick ka nalang sa totoong iboboto mo para sa kanya na yung sumpa ng boto mo. Huwag mo na idamay si VP Leni.
However, this Leni supporter believed the curse will lose its effect because Leni is the daughter of God.
Mawawala ang sumpa sayo kasi iboboto mo si leni na anak ng diyos may puso sa kapwa lalo na sa mahihirap ikaw pagpapalain ng panginoon hessus kasi tama ang ibonoto mo.
This BBM supporter gives Direk Manny the blessing to vote for Leni if that means his curse will be passed on to Leni and resulted in BBM victory.
Go po please, if that is the only way for BBM to win go and vote for leni, just make sure you still have the sumpa.

Baka si Robredo po ang aking iboboto this May. Lahat ng mga binoto ko para sa pagka-presidente simula 1992 ay natalo. Feeling ko may sumpa ang aking boto.
Hindi magagalit sa akin ang mga pinklawan dahil manok naman nila ang iboboto ko. Matutuwa sa akin ang mga BBM o ang iba pang mga kandidato dahil sa iba ko ipapasa ang sumpa.
In other words, everybody happy!
