The all-female group Mocha Girls have thrown their support behind the candidacy of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, even if his victory might spell doom for their careers as sexy performers.
In their Facebook post on November 27, the group said that if it is true that Duterte will close down bars and will prohibit sexy performances, they are willing to stop their sexy shows as a show of support for his Presidency. The Mocha Girls ended their post with this statement: “We will sacrifice our career for our country to have a GENUINE CHANGE. Bayan muna bago ang sarili.” (Country before self.)
Some of their followers, who implied that they were from Davao, said that whoever told them that Duterte closes down bars is lying. They said that Davao has existing bars and allow sexy shows but there is a 2 AM curfew in such establishments to prevent disorderly behavior from drunkenness and other causes. They said that
Duterte is very much against drugs and rape.
