Julie Anne San Jose reacts to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s statement on deaths of front liners

Julie Anne San Jose was disappointed with Duterte’s statement on front liners.

Julie Anne San Jose joined the growing number of celebrities who are now speaking out against the government.

In a tweet Tuesday, March 31, San Jose reacted to President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement on the death of the country’s medical front liners.

In his pre-taped public address Monday, March 30, President Duterte praised and thanked the medical front liners for dying in the line of duty. According to Duterte, these medical front liners were lucky to die as heroes because of their role in the country’s battle against COVID-19.

May mga doktor na, mga nurses, attendants, namatay. Sila ‘yung nasawi ang buhay para lang makatulong sa kapwa. Napakasuwerte nila. Namatay sila para sa bayan. Iyon ang dapat ang rason na bakit tayo mamatay,” Duterte said.

“It would be an honor to die for your country, I assure you,” he added.

Julie Anne did not agree with his opinion, stating, “Luh you don’t have to die to be a hero.”

Aside from Julie Anne, Duterte’s statements also didn’t sit well with many netizens.
