Willie Revillame not pressing charges against critics

Willie Revillame changed his mind and won’t be pressing charges anymore against celebrities whom he said “attacked” him on the microblogging site Twitter.

“Hindi na ho [Not anymore],” he told Radyo Inquirer’s Mon Tulfo and Reysie Amado.

Is there a law that says that you can’t say your OWN opinion?

No freedom of speech in the Philippines? Really? So if I say some opinion about Willie, he’s going to press charge me?
Wow, really Willie?
Why press charge? Are you that guilty?

Why don’t you just ‘help’ Filipinos with your ‘own’ money.

Oh wait, is it your money? That’s right it’s the sponsor’s money that you give the contestants, it’s not yours.

I remember when I went to watch ‘Wowowee’ when I went to the Philippines for vacation in 2007. This contestant who was poor and sick couldn’t buy medicine. The audience stood up and gave her donations. I don’t remember if I saw Willie gave something to her, I know for sure that we did donate some of our OWN money in dollars.

Some names that Willie mentioned: Lea Salonga, Jim Paredes, Bianca Gonzalez, Aiza Seguerra, Agot Isidro, K Brosas and Leah Navarro.
Don’t be sad, you can say whatever you want.


McDonalad’s BF-GF Commercial Ads Pulled Out

The famous McDonald’s BF-GF Commercial was pulled out by Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).
Said CBCP officials:

“If the ad attempted to teach commitment, (it failed) because it was too superficial to point to a packet of French fries as the basis of a relationship.”
“The two children are not even at the right age for this kind of relationship. It might also pave the way for us to lose sight of the good ways of shaping the values of our children.”

The ad might be cute but using children to portray as a couple is very wrong in my opinion. If relationship was to work this way, I don’t know if people would be able to feel what true love is.

Girl: Girlfriend mo na ba ako?
Boy: Ayoko nga. Di pa ako ready eh.
Girl: Huh?!
Boy: Demanding ang mga girlfriend. Gusto ganito, gusto ganyan… ewan!!
Girl: Gusto ko lang naman ng McDo fries eh.
Boy: Talaga?
Girl: [nods while smiling]
