Singer Jim Paredes couldn’t contain his disappointment over the new TV project of Senator Bong Revilla Jr. in GMA Network.
Paredes said he believes that Revilla should not be given a television show for children because of his history.
Revilla was charged with plunder over the multi-billion pork barrel scam. He was later released after the court found him not guilty of plunder.
The senator ran in the 2019 midterm polls and he won a senate seat at the 11th spot.
“Sen. Bong Revilla returns in GMA Network with drama-fantasy show for kids. PERA PERA PERA lahat. Okay lang sa inyo na maging role model siya ng kabataan? C’mon GMA. You can do better than this,” Paredes said in a tweet.
The untitled TV project reported by GMA Network is set to replace Revilla’s defunct TV show “Kap’s Amazing Stories”. The show was a consistent top rater on its time slot but was later on scrapped months after Revilla was imprisoned.
Paredes is a known staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte.
