WALANG BALAK MAGPAAPEKTO si Angel Locsin kahit pa bina-bash at iniintriga ang ginawa niyang pagdalaw sa Marawi evacuees kamakailan lang.
Sey ni Angel sa huling tweet niya, “I can’t change the way people think or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit and focus more on helping those who are in need.”
Tahimik na rin ang Facebook account ni Neil Arce na sinasabing rumored boyfriend ni Angel na una ring nagdepensa sa aktres sa kasagsagan ng pamba-bash dito.
Ang huling post na nakita namin sa kanyang FB account ay yung pagsi-share niya ng open letter ng isang taga-Mindanao.
According sa post ng netizen na si Bella Jane, never siyang naging fan ni Angel pero dahil sa ginawa nitong pagpunta sa Marawi ay hinangaan niya ang aktres.
Narito ang bahagi ng kanyang post:
“Let me start this by saying that I was never your fan. I knew of how great your acting prowess were with top rated series to beat. I’ve heard of your philanthropic deeds- from Ondoy, to Yolanda and even to your Mindanao visits. The ones you did in silence.
“You were there visiting areas in Mindanao for the sole reason that you wanted to get rid of your own biases and hear stories of Mindanaons yourself. This happened even before this Marawi crisis took place. You did all of these in the absence of any title given to you. You were not a part of the UN food program or a UNICEF ambassador.
“Surely, this is not just a promo ad or of you gaining the spotlight. And yet, despite knowing everything, it wasn’t enough for me to notice how great you are as a person nor as an actress of influence.
“Not until Marawi.
“Oh girl, you had me there. I was caught off guard. Unaware of your magnanimity. I saw you in a different light, a lot brighter this time. I began to realize your true worth and saw how different, emboldened you are to other actresses of your kind.
“I saw pictures of you from media outlets clad in hijab, void of any make up and being one with local communities there. I then said this to myself, “Atta girl”, heaved a sigh and let that sudden onslaught of realizations — one after the other hit me like a stupid fool that I was.
“Your act slammed that Mindanaon in me. Of why I can’t do the same thing to my fellow Mindanaon too. Of why I can’t get rid of my own biases.
“You redefined everything. And be that as it may, let me say this to you, a compliment or gratitude of some sort: “Ang tunay na maganda at sexy ay nasa Marawi.”
“To this day onwards, You got an admirer in me.
“Hanggang sa muli mong paglipad.”
