Agot Isidro reveals why she’s a Duterte critic

by | Entertainment

Agot Isidro revealed why she refrained from silence and chose to publicly criticized President Rodrigo Duterte on September 21 in an anti-Duterte protest held in Luneta.

The “Ang Probinsyano” actress said she first irked at Duterte when she usually hear him curse in public.

“Something inside me just… nag-awaken sa akin. Kasi na-turn off ako sa mga pagmumura. Kasi napaka-basic nun, e, di ba? Yung pagmumura, hindi lang ng kung sinu-sino, pati head of the state, minumura,” Philippine Entertainment Portal quoted Isidro.

She also said she had enough when she kept on hearing news about numerous extrajudicial killings of alleged drug users and pushers in the country.

“Actually, hindi lang naman President Duterte, kundi yung pamamalakad lang niya, and later on, hindi ako agree sa mga desisyon niya na nangyayari ngayon tapos, nakikita ko yung patayan. Kailangan bang patayin? Di ba, may rule of law? May proseso ‘yan, e. Bakit kailangang patayin?” Isidro said.

“Saka hindi naman porke’t gumagamit, kailangang patayin… misguided. I really think it’s a social and health issue, not a criminal,” she added.

On 2016, Isidro posted on her Facebook account that Duterte is a psychopath for throwing insults on other world leaders like former US President Barack Obama.

Ever since, Isidro has been the target of stauch Duterte supporters by throwing personal insults and allegations at her.

“They can call me names, they can call me like ‘baog,’ ‘kaya iniwan ng asawa,’ may ‘drug lord…’ mga ganun. That doesn’t bother me at all. Hindi talaga kaya maghanap pa kayo ng iba-bash sa akin kasi talagang, sorry, hindi ako apektado,” she said.

While some are criticizing her political stand, Isidro also got some support from anti-Duterte administration like former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay.

“When this is over, the nation must find ways to thank those who shined brightly during days of darkness. Start with Agot Isidro & Ed Lingao,” he said in his tweet on September 23.
