Janine Gutierrez reveals tweet that government’s insensitivity amid COVID-19 outbreak was for Sen. Tito Sotto

The actress was enraged by Senate President Tito Sotto’s statements made on Monday, March 22.

Kapamilya actress Janine Gutierrez is one of the few celebrities who use their voice to echo the cries of ordinary Filipino citizens. Janine has been outspoken in her criticisms of the government.

Recently, the actress criticized the Administration’s lack of concern, which only recommended to endure the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Napaka-walang malasakit naman. Isang taon nang nagtitiis ang mga Pilipino, imbis na magbigay ng solusyon, ang maipapayo mo ay mag-tiis pa rin at ‘wag magreklamo? Hanggang kelan? Masunurin at maintindihin ang Pinoy, kung meron lang sanang matinong maaasahan,” the Kapamilya actress tweeted on Tuesday, March 23.

Her tweet gained positive and negative feedback from the netizens.

On March 24, news entity The Philippine Star’s official Twitter account shared Janine’s tweet in a photo with a caption, “Actress Janine Gutierrez expressed her dismay over the Philippine government’s response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.”

A Netizen commented on the post who disagreed with the actress’s tweet. The Netizen claimed that Janine is ignoring the efforts of those who are working hard during this period and is being unjust by implying that there has no concern at all.

“@janinegutierrez I don’t agree na walang malasakit ang government natin. By saying that, you are dismissing the efforts of those who are tirelessly working during these times. The response needs improvement clearly but it is unfair to say na walang malasakit at all,” @jarygregorio wrote.

Janine was quick to respond to the Netizen. She revealed that she was referring her previous tweet to what Senator Tito Sotto said.

“I was referring to what Tito Sotto said,” Janine replied.

The Netizen replied, advising the actress to call out the senator on Twitter to prevent generalization and misinterpretation.

“I believe he’s on Twitter. I’d suggest calling him out here if that’s your intent to avoid generalization and misinterpretation.”

Janine then expressed appreciation for the Netizen’s suggestion and said that she would follow it next time.

“Noted. Will do that next time for you. Thanks for the suggestion.”

So, Janine’s previous tweet was not a response to the President’s remark belittling the growing number of cases to keep the country’s economy open. The actress was enraged by Senate President Tito Sotto’s statements made on Monday, March 22.

“This is war. It’s a war against COVID-19. ‘Pag giyera, meron bang umaangal na wala silang makain? Umaangal ka ba? Titiisin mo lahat ‘yan eh.

“Susunod ka sa kung anumang usapan, eh. Lahat ng reklamo natin, hindi reklamo ng nasa giyera eh. Masyado tayong comfortable,” he added.

Sotto made these remarks as he slammed the public, in particular, for voicing their grievances about the poorly handled pandemic response.
