The eerie silence of A-list celebs notorious for toxic cancel culture in the wake of the success of Darryl Yap’s ‘Maid in Malacanang’ explained

Did you find it odd that the so-called A-list celebs like Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda and company are eerily silent on social media and not calling for the boycott of Viva Films and even SM Cinemas because of the important role they played in the box office success of Darryl Yap’s ‘Maid in Malacanang’?

Well, if your answer is “YES”, you are not alone because Manila Bulletin writer Ms. Krizette Laureta Chu who also noticed this and even wrote an article on Facebook to explain the phenomenon.

Basically, Ms. Chu made 2 observations on social media in the wake of the roaring success of Darryl Yap’s ‘Maid in Malacanang’ movie:

1. A-list celebs, noisiest lot during the election against the Marcoses, are not attacking or calling for the boycott of Viva Films or even SM cinemas. She theorized the A-list celebs are afraid of antagonizing Viva Films for fear of not getting a movie project, especially now that the Viva Films is the only company active in producing movies these days.

2. Only not so popular celebrities like Vince Tanada are only making a noise on social media against MIM (Maid in Malacanang).

Chu remarked that these A-list celebs will only condemn if it is convenient for them.

Going back to Chu’s opening statement, she concluded that MIM, is a real flex of power from the Marcos camp. You may now read Krizette Chu’s original FB post.

There’s a line (apparently it’s from a Ne0 N*zi and not Voltaire) that says,

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

And I think about this now—how celebrities who were very noisy, dismissive, and insulting during the elections and who i expect to b*tch about and attack Maid in Malacañang, are oddly quiet about MIM.

Yung mga hindi sikat na artista like Vince Tañada lang ang maingay.

So now you realize, that when it’s their livelihood on the line—who will ever be brave enough to call out Viva at a time when there’s no other major film outfit — these very opinionated celebrities are oddly quiet?

No one among the celebrities also spoke out against SM, which encouraged the mass distribution of Maid in Malacanang, as Director Darryl Yap himself divulged.

Walang condemnation, walang cancel culture, walang tweets na pa high and mighty and righteous from A-list celebrities.

Hindi pala talaga totoo ang condemnation no, when it is inconvenient?

“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

This is why MIM, aside from the massive turnout, is a real flex of power from the Marcos camp.

Reaction?
