Alessandra De Rossi has reacted to online rumors that her good friend Angel Locsin is running for public office in the next elections.
In her tweet “tribute” to Angel, Alessandra said that the Kapamilya star didn’t have to as she shared a photo collage that showed Angel’s acts of public service via relief efforts through the years.
“Sabi nila, tatakbo ka daw na senador. ? Nyar, di kailangan. Kaya mong lumipad. Nag-iisa kang ganyan. Minsan nadadala ng emosyon. Hello? Obvious ba? Napakalaking puso ang nasayo. Natural yun. Tao ka. Sira ulo ka. Mahal kita. Teka? May tribute @143redangel nakita ko lang ? #ccto,” the Through Night and Day star said.
Angel has since thanked Alessandra for her post, but the latter wasn’t done yet with her “tribute” to the actress.
She further tweeted: “Hay salamat! Tumanggap ka din ng papuri sa wakas! Alam ko ayaw mo, pero sorry! May tribute! I cannot help it! TOTOO EH! Minsan lang! Hayaan mo akong ipagmalaki ka. Ako na to guys!”
Alessandra also laughed off some of the negative comments to her tweet, including one urging her to directly talk to the actress instead of posting her message online.
“Are you drags? ? Magkausap kami directly sa tunay na buhay. Sadyang I can’t help but defend her dito sa twitter kung saan lahat nakadrags. ?????,” she joked.
Earlier, Alessandra asked netizens not to pit her against Angel as she defended her decision not to join rallies that protested the non-renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise.
Meanwhile, it’s not clear where and how these online rumors have started.
But given Angel’s COVID-19 related efforts and how she has emerged as a leading figure in protests, online and off, in support of ABS-CBN, it’s no surprise that industry colleagues and other personalities are very much open to the idea, including former COMELEC commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal.
“I’ll run the campaign of @143redangel if she runs for public office. I’ll do it pro bono,” he said in a tweet that has since received over 4K likes.
Angel, however, has already denied harboring any political plans.
“Public servant naman po kami bilang mga artista, e. I think ‘yung buhay naman namin is very public. Lahat naman ‘to ginagawa namin, hindi lang para sa sarili namin, kasi gusto namin magbigay ng entertainment sa mga tao,” she said in a previous interview.
“Pero, politics? Hindi talaga. Sobrang hindi. Wala…Wala sa utak ko ‘yun,” she added.
