Agot Isidro slams Teddy Boy Locsin over threat to journalists

Agot Isidro twits Teddy Loscin over an insensitive tweet.

Singer-actress Agot Isidro blasted Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin over his threat to journalists.

In a tweet, Agot shared a screencap of Locsin’s tweet stating he wanted to drop media people inside the controversial SEA Games 2019 cauldron.

“Hay. I want media to be dropped in the cauldron by chopper so they can light it with a match. We will be able to tell from the screams if the fire is real,” said Locsin.

In response, Agot said, “No wonder the Philippines is considered a dangerous place for journalists. We have a cabinet official wanting to set them on fire. Yes, that bad.”

Loscin’s tweet was in response to Senate President Tito Sotto’s remark regarding the pre-taped portion of the Olympic games trying to justify the pre-taping of the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games lighting of the cauldron.

Under the current admin, more than 100 cases of attacks against journalists have been recorded.

According to The Freedom for Media, Freedom for All Network, there were already 128 cases of attacks and threats to the media under the Duterte regime.

From the 128 cases, 14 journalists were killed, with the latest being Dindo Generoso who was shot by a riding in tandem killers in Dumaguete City last November.

Meanwhile, netizens who shared Agot’s sentiments, also slammed Locsin for his insensitive remarks.
