, Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano expressed his feelings over netizens’ reaction to his son Gab Valenciano’s post on Facebook.
Recently, Gab posted his opinion regarding Presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte of Davao. “I respect him for his honesty and eagerness to lead our country back on track but I cannot support his morality. No matter how great you are at what you do, your character is what will define you.”
Gary said Gab’s post has made him realize one thing. “Yung mga na-air ni Gab has make me realize na talagang sineseryoso yata ng mga Pilipino ngayon ang darating na eleksiyon kasi ang dami nagreact e. May mga death threat pa nga e.”
These reactions from the netizens were also the very things that hurt Gary. He admitted, “In the beginning nahurt ako, kasi kung anu-ano nang mga sinasabi e, even tungkol sa past ko. But the past is past, what’s nice about the past is that there’s a much more beautiful present.”
Nonetheless, Gary said the netizen’s reactions to his son’s post only confirm an increased level of political consciousness of Filipinos.
