Recently, Kapuso actor Paolo Contis, a known Duterte supporter, replied to Former Senator Antonio ‘Sonny’ Trillianes IV tweet against the president.
Trillianes is regarded as a very vocal critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, and the former lawmaker recently tweeted about Duterte lashing out at critics of the government’s actions on COVID-19.
“Four Trillion ang budget mo, tapos hahanapan mo ako ng ambag? Batukan kaya kita.”
Four Trillion ang budget mo, tapos hahanapan mo ako ng ambag? Batukan kaya kita.

This tweet caught the attention of Contis. In his Instagram story, Contis posted a screenshot of Trillianes’s tweet and captioned it with, “Isa pa tong bastos at walang silbi na to eh..”
Trillanes had reacted to Duterte’s latest speech where the latter told off critics of the government’s actions on the COVID-19 crisis by asking what they’ve contributed to helping the country.
“Kapag sinabi ninyo ako wala, okay wala. Eh kayo? What have you done for the country except to talk and criticize and talk?” he said,
“Tapos pagdating ng panahon na magkamatayan ito lahat, bagsakan na, then you look to government for succor.”
Netizens, on the other hand, went after Contis since his own idol is infamously known for being “bastos”.
Contis’ Twitter account also appears to have been suspended for violating its guidelines.
Tama ka d’yan Paolo Contis, bastos si Trillanes. Dapat kasi tumulad siya sa presidente mo: napakatino, hindi nagmumura, hindi nagbabanta, at isang inspirasyon at positive role model sa sambayanan. Isang fist bump naman d’yan! 👊🏼 pic.twitter.com/2Cumg5at4g

We should make a list of all artistas who are DDS. No watching their shows, no buying of products they endorse, no visiting of establishments they own and/or patronize.
