Comedienne Pokwang has spoken following the controversial remark of her former onscreen daughter Ella Cruz regarding “history” and “tsismis.” 

Pokwang, in a tweet posted on Monday, July 4, said that she disagrees with Ella’s statement. 

While she respects Ella’s political views, Pokwang said she won’t agree with her on issues concerning history. 


“’Nak Ella Cruz tanggap ko pananaw mo sa politika at respeto ko ang sino man sinuportahan mo, pero sa usaping HISTORY, di ako sasang ayon sa ’yo ‘nak dahil mali! maling mali,” Pokwang said. 

Referencing Ella’s role in the ABS-CBN series Aryana where the young actress took on the titular character who was a mermaid, Pokwang, in jest, said she wants to put Ella back to the ocean so she could get more iodine.

According to a study published  National Library of Medicine National Center for Biotechnology Information, iodine is “essential for brain development.” 

“Mabuti pang ibalik na kitang muli sa dagat nak mayaman sa iodine ang dagat nakakatalino daw yan #Aryana,” Pokwang said. 

Aryana was Ella’s first-ever leading role. Pokwang, on the other hand, played Aryana’s mother Ofelia Capuyao-Mendez. 

Following Pokwang’s tweet, the comedienne became the most-talked-about topic on Twitter.

Noreen Capili, one of the writers of Aryana, replied that they should get Desiree Del Valle’s Neptuna or G Tongi’s Stella (both Aryana’s enemies) to kidnap Aryana again. Pokwang joked, “Wahahahahaha dali!!! Gawan ng part 2 yan pero this time nasa lata na sya!! Hahaahhaha!”

Ella is set to take on the character of Irene Marcos in the upcoming film Maid in Malacañang which will follow the story of the Marcos family 72 hours before their exile to Hawaii following the 1986 People Power Revolution. 

“History is like tsismis. It is filtered and dagdag na rin, so, hindi natin alam what is the real history. Andoon na iyong idea, pero may mga bias talaga. As long as we’re here, alive at may kanya-kanyang opinion, I respect everyone’s opinion,” Ella said during an interview with TV5’s MJ Marfori.
