Jake Ejercito, Jodi Sta. Maria decry difference in treatment between the rich and the poor amid COVID-19 crisis

This inequality drew reactions from former presidential son Jake Ejercito and actress Jodi Sta. Maria.

The enhanced community quarantine has unfortunately shown how different the rich and the poor are treated.

For instance, a policeman beat up a man who attempted to go out of his house even after presenting his quarantine pass.

But when Senator Koko Pimentel accompanied his wife to Makati Medical Center while he was COVID-19 positive and placed every medical professional and patient he came in contact with in danger, the senator only asked for understanding and there were no legal consequences for him.

This inequality drew reactions from former presidential son Jake Ejercito and actress Jodi Sta. Maria.

Ejercito quoted, “Poor is guilty until proven innocent, rich is innocent until proven guilty.”

Meanwhile, Jodi encouraged everyone on Twitter to talk about compassion, just pure human compassion in this trying time.

In Case You Missed It

Jake Ejercito is not just ranting on Twitter, he’s also trying to help the frontliners as he continues to search for N95 mask suppliers and he even promoted some fundraising links.

Moreover, Jodi expressed her dismay towards sellers of personal protective equipment who had jacked up their prices.
