G. Tongi slammed TV host-comedian Arnell Ignacio for calling out celebrities criticizing the government.
On Twitter, the U.S.-based actress reacted to a report about Arnell, who said certain personalities are slow-witted for speaking out against something even if there is evidence proving otherwise.
According to G., Arnell should be mindful enough when attacking celebrities who are simply using their voice to fight for their rights.
“Arnel, dahan-dahan lang sa pag-atake sa mga kasamahan sa industriya na ginagamit lang naman ang kanilang boses na karapatan naman nila,” she wrote.
She added: “Sa kaalaman ko, ang may mahinang ulo ay ‘yung ‘di tumutubong buhok, kaya tuloy naka-plugs in sila.”
While Arnel did not specify who he was referring to his in his post, many of his followers mentioned the name of Angelica Panganiban, who earned the ire of the pro-Administration supporters a day prior due to a cryptic post from the 34-year-old actress.
“Noon ang artista kadalasan ang tingin e mahina ang ulo ... na stereoyped kung baga. Nakaka sama nga ng loob noon ... pero ngayon ang hirap na ipagtanggol. Ang daming prueba eh me yabang pa nga sa katangahan e,” Arnel wrote in his Facebook post last November 2.

Netizens were quick to relate Angelica’s tweet to one of the most-talked-about topics on Twitter during that time — the whereabouts of the President at the height of the onslaught of 2020’s strongest typhoons, Rolly.
“Ano ng plano? Tulog na lang? Kilos kilos naman para sa sinumpaan para sa bayan at mga pilipino,” Angelica wrote in a tweet last November 1.
