After preparing food for those who work on the frontlines such as the military, police, and health workers, Pokwang decided to help those who need food during the Luzon-wide “enhanced community quarantine.”
The Kapamilya comedienne prepared packed relief goods and reached out to her local barangay to have them distributed to households who don’t have enough food supply at home.
Don’t worry hindi na po ako lalabas last na ito hahahahahaa pick up nalang ng baranggay captain NA pinagkakatiwalaan ko, alam na nya sino mga dapat bigyan 👍🙏🏼🌈 MGA walang pang lockdown NA pagkain mga nasa kalye at bahay na walang stock at pang stock, salamat sa mga kasambahay ko sa help thank you Omay 🙏🏼❤️ ako na bahala sa pamilya nyo 🙏🏼 GOD PLEASE HEAL OUR LAND AND THE WORLD 🙏🏼
Despite her good intentions, the 49-year-old celebrity still received negative criticisms from netizens—calling her “papansin” among others.
This prompted the Banana Sundae star to slam those criticizing her good deeds and to hit back at them without mincing her words.
“Pumikit na lang kayo at manalangin! 'Yan na lang sana maitulong niyo sa bayan natin,” she said in her Instagram post.
Explaining more about how she feels about the bashing, she wrote in the caption: “Read this mga animal. Naiiyak ako sa galit sa inyo. Sa ganito pa talagang panahon? Sa ganitong panahon mga kampon ng bashers ng satanas? Ngayon pa talaga? Hindi ito ang tamang oras.”
She then posted another video of the people in charge of distributing the said relief goods and reminded everyone to be more responsible in using social media instead.
“Ito ang tamang panahon para gamitin sa tama ang social media. Mag hikayat at magkalat ng good vibes hindi pang ba-bash,” she wrote.
