Young film maker Darryl Yap has run to the defense of Direk Paul Soriano who is now the target of a cancel campaign on social media for supporting Bongbong Marcos aka BBM.
Yap was not surprised to find out the very people calling to cancel Direk Soriano are the same people from the showbiz industry who thinks they are the righteous ones and fights for a cause. Ironically, Yap these are the same people who never get far as far as their careers are concerned but a$$wiper$ of movie directors.
Yap went on to talk about the similarities between a heartbeat and the dictates of conscience, that votes and arts are not just the fruits of taste but they are shaped because of life’s experiences, connection, culture and identity – the people who are trying to judge you because you chose to exercise your right is no different from the monster the so-called righteous promise to slay.
Yap ended the FB post with a prayer asking God that if the times comes he has no more projects to keep him busy, to spare the fate of his colleagues in the industry who not only have no projects but also lose the value of respect.
As of this writing, Yap’s FB post has generated 7,000 reactions, 631 comments and 1,100+ shares in 13 hours and growing.

Kinacancel si Direk Paul Soriano dahil ang pinili nyang suportahan ay si Bongbong Marcos.
Nung tinignan ko kung sinu-sino ang nambabash-
eh yung mga taga-industriyang ang gusto nila— sila lang ang tama, sila lang ang may ipinaglalaban.
ito rin yung mga taga-industriyang walang ibang narating kundi pwet ng mga direktor nilang hinimod nila hanggang mapudpod, naligaw na sila sa bulbul ng isa’t-isa kakasigaw na sila lang ang may karapatang gumawa ng pelikula.
Ang tibok ng puso, gaya ng dikta ng konsensya,
ang boto at sining ay hindi lamang bunga ng panlasa,
ang mga ito ay nabubuo dahil sa karanasan, koneksyon, kultura at pagkakakilanlan—at ang mga taong pilit kang huhusgahan dahil sa pinili mong gamitin ang iyong karapatan ay walang pinagiba sa mga halimaw na ipinangako nilang papaslangin.
kung sakaling balang araw,
wala rin akong mapagkabalahan…
wag mo sana akong gawing tulad nila…
wala na ngang project, wala pang respect.
