Following her controversial tweet about the pandemic, Kakai Bautista deactivated her Twitter account.

On Friday, March 26, the comedienne tweeted, “I stopped patronizing Duterts and Robredo. I tried focusing on the advantages of the pandemic. And the lessons it has brought us."

She added, “I realized that life become shorter and I want to live it more by being grateful. I pray. A lot."


Kakai's tweet did not sit well with the netizens with many saying that she is speaking from her supposed "privilege." Meanwhile, some netizens called out Kakai for her neutral political stance amid the government's response on the pandemic.

After receiving flak because of her post, Kakai deactivated her Twitter page.

The comedienne then posted a statement on her Facebook page to clarify her statement.

In her Facebook post, Kakai spoke up first about her political stand. 

"Hindi ako Pro and Anti Duterts and Pro And Anti Leni. PRO- FILIPINO at PRO- PHILIPPINES ako. Hindi ako sa tao, SA governance ako masama ang loob, MAGKAIBA YUN GUSYH. MALIWANAG yun. Susmaryosep. Wag na tayong mag-away away. GUSTo Ko din ng pagbabago," she said.

Afterwards, she explained why she deactivated her Twitter page. 

"Guysh? I deactivated my twitter account ah. Ang gulo-gulo na kase. I might have hurt some people sa mga tweets ko recently pero it doesn’t mean na di ako aware sa mga nangyayare sa atin. AND OO PAGOD NADIN AKO SA GOBYERNO naten," she said.

Kakai stressed that she herself is affected by the pandemic.

"Gusto kong malaman nyo, na hindi man pare-pareho ang opinyon naten at paniniwala ukol sa pandemic, HINDI kayo nag-iisa. Apektado din ako. TAYONG LAHAT TO. Laban naten ito. Kaya nga kung nasasaktan yung iba sa pagiging positive (mindset) ko sa nangyayare sa atin, Please ibigay nyo na sa akin yun kase Yun nalang ang pwede ko ding hawakan, Yung PAG-ASA.

"Gusto ko lang din ishare sa inyo yun sa mga posts ko, na kahit ganito nararanasan naten there’s always HOPE and May Liwanag padin kung we will stick to our FAITH," she said.

She also remarked that she is not speaking from her alleged "privilege."

 

 

"Ingatan naten ang mga isip at puso naten. Kung gusto naten magalit, or mag rant, sige ilabas naten, pero sana wag tayong Mang-away ng mga taong lumalaban din sa sarili nilang paraan. Juskow guysh, hindi ako privilege. Nagkataon lang na andito ako ngayon sa estadong ito pero It doesn’t mean na hindi ako NAHIHIRAPAN.

"I just want to be positive sa pag-iisip hangga’t kaya ko. Yun lang ang kaya kong ishare sa inyo, ang natutunan kong gratefulness sa kabila ng lahat," she stated.
