Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu is a self-confessed Marcos critic or hater if you will and in 2016, she supported Leni Robredo because like many anti-Marcos, she rooted for Robredo because she believed then that Robredo was the best thing ever.
Six years later, Chu did realize how wrong she was about Robredo and now she wanted to stop Robredo so much from becoming PRRD’s successor that she is now rooting for BBM to win over Robredo in the 2022 presidential polls.
In a Facebook post, Chu admitted that she is just human and bound to make mistakes. Chu confessed that no guy has fooled her ever but sadly, she was fooled by a woman.
Netizens were so amused at Chu’s confession that in just 4 hours, out of 6,500 reactors, 5,000 of them hit the laugh emoji.
Here are some of the comments from netizens.
Netizen #1 praised Chu for the courage to admit her mistakes.
It takes a lot of courage to admit your mistakes. Yet in so doing, you give yourself greater power. Because no one can ever use this as a weapon against you. Ever.
Netizen #2 echoed the sentiment of the above commenter.
Takes guts to own up to this Krizette. Good job and being able to keep an open mind is what makes people intelligent.
Netizen #3 also confessed that he used to be anti-Marcos like Krizette but realized he was wrong after doing some research because of the nonstop attack against the Marcoses.
Anti Marcos din ako noon, kaya lang sa walang hinto Na pag a atake sa Marcos Napa tanong ako sa sarili ko ano ba Ang ginawa nang Marcos at kaya sila gina ganyan samantalang ang maki kita ko lahat puro project nang mga Marcos , sabi ko maka pag self research nga at ako at kunin ag both sides , doon ko nalaman Na Marcos ay Biktima lang . Kaya mula noon solid BBM ako.
