"The moment you hinder someone from speaking their mind to is the moment you failed to respect the rights of your Fellow Filipino."

These were the words of Jennylyn Mercado as she addressed her critics on social media amid her being vocal on social issues hounding the country. 

On her Twitter page, Jennylyn called out those who are trying to silence her. 


"May qualification ba dapat bago ka magkaroon ng karapatan na magkomento sa mga isyung panlipunan? Hindi ba sapat na mamayan ka ng Pilipinas at nagbabayad ka ng buwis? Bakit kung kelan Pandemya na lahat tayo ay apektado saka ang iba ay pilit na pinatatahimik?" she stated.

 

 

Jennylyn added, "Naguguluhan na ako. Bakit parang nakalimutan ng ibang tao irespeto ang iba kahit iba ang opinyon nila? Hindi ba yun ang isa sa mga unang tinuturo ng ating mga magulang?" 

 

 

It can be recalled that Jennylyn previously lambasted the government's response on the COVID-19 pandemic. She also stood up for ABS-CBN after the House committee denied the network a new franchise, which shut down the media giant's broadcast operations for good.

In a Twitter post on July 27, she said, "The role of the government is to promote the welfare of this country sa kahit ano mang sitwasyon. That is why any progress or positive action na nagawa nila ay hindi na kailangan bigyang puri dahil 'yun naman talaga ang trabaho nila," she stated. 

 

 

"Ang mga tao na dapat bigyang pugay ay ang ating mga makabagong bayani. Maraming salamat sa ating mga doctors, nurses, teachers, mga sundalo, at ang iba pang mga frontliners na patuloy ang serbisyo sa ating mga Pilipino," she added.
