A certain netizen named who called herself Patriotic Troll Odette Dequito-Javier on Facebook has shared a Tiktok video showing Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz talking about the qualities of the leader she will vote in the next presidential election.
On Facebook, Javier wrote a cheeky caption to introduce video: “May nagtatanong ba sa kanya kung sino iboboto nya?…”
In the video uploaded by Tiktoker @joshivanmorales23, the Tokyo gold medalist, speaking in Tagalog, said she will vote for a leader who is a winner not a loser…someone religious and humane and not selfish…someone who can give protection or support, not fear. She ended the brief message by asking netizens if they feel the same.
“Ang iboboto ko ay ang pinunong may pusong winner, ay hindi talunan…yung maka-diyos at makatao at hindi makasarili, yung hindi magbigay kalinga, hindi takot. Kayo rin, di ba?”
As of this writing, Javier’s FB post has generated 1,082 reactions, 698 comments and 5,700 views and counting.
Netizens wasted no time and dived into the comment section to share their thoughts on the video.
“Please Hidilyn stay away from Politics,” a netizen begged the Tokyo Olympic gold medalist not meddle in politics.
“Learn from Pakyaw, Miss. Don’t play with fire… especially this early. Stay in the middle and enjoy your bonanzas.“ added another netizen.
“We’re proud at nagbigay ka ng karangalan as bansa. Pero hangan dun lang yun Hwag kang hibang! Duterte still my president! and I’m proud to be pinoy!” commented another netizen.
“Ilang days lang sumikat.. Dahil dyan sa politics video n yan majority of the filipino people ay nawalan n ng gana sa kanya..” another disappointed fan of Diaz shared his thoughts.
Wrong timing said another. “I dont think that is necessary this time. Better wait for campaign period.”
“ay bobo si gaga. iboto mo yung candidate na may strong leadership boba, straight forward, smart at higit sa lahat malaki ang pagmmahal sa kanyang bansa. maraming maka Dyos dyan pero demonyo nmn, mayroon din kunyare kalinga ang ginagawa, sa harap lng ng cameta at tv pero manggagamit lng pala. sabi ko sayo weight lifting mo muna utak mo hidilyn!” an irate Duterte supporter berated Diaz.
