The netizens received the post of the Tsinoy crooner warmly that resulted in the high volume of SHARES and 81,000 LIKES.

Please read the full text of Richard Poon’s viral post:

Grace Poe gave the most eloquent, decent, diplomatic, sensitive speech in the end.

I blame you Davao, why did you have to show me Duterte’s SUPERIOR GOVERNANCE?

Why did you have to narrate to me his SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE against crime, corruption & illegal drugs?

Yes, I am going AGAINST my own self.

I will do the OPPOSITE of what I HAVE BEEN USED TO FOR SO MANY YEARS OF PHILIPPINE PRESIDENTS:

I will forego beautiful words from excellent statesmen Mar & excellent stateswoman Poe.

I will go for a foul-mouth that I believe can CREATE THE GREATEST CHANGE in our country, rather than an angelic diplomat.

Go Mayor Duterte!

Netizen Charize Jacquez Alavazo was inspired to write a short (lol) reply to express her agreement with the post of the singer.

Ive got the exact sentiments as yours, Mr. Poon. I was never a fan of his because of his wrong choice of words. But at the end of the day, I couldn’t care more about it. For good words, for the past years, never stopped crimes. Words never ended corruption, drugs and criminality even the broad day light.

If this foul-mouthed human being i what we need, then so be it. Screw the cussing and cursing. We’ve been shouting bad words even before Marcos became the president. So why hate Duterte for the “normal” thing people do?

We need change. And if he could give us that, then I’m with him.

Because I’m too tired of fearing my teenage brother’s future of not finishing high school because he got tempted with drugs.

I’m tired of stressing myself out thinking whether my grandma and mom is doing good alone in our house every night.
And I’m tired of being paranoid going to work every night. afraid i might get hold upped, or worse, raped, just like what happened to a friend.

And most of all, I’m afraid for my children’s future. because this is definitely not the Philippines I could be proud of. Not the Philippines i want them to grow up with.
