TV host-turned vlogger Toni Gonzaga took the liberty to advise the rally crowd to brush off the “bayaran” tag and follow the example of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos Jr.
During the UniTeam’s campaign rally in Gen. Trias, Cavite on Tuesday, March 22, Gonzaga told the crowd how she was called not to bother when they are called paid hacks.
She said after she endorsed Marcos Jr., people began to call her names and realized that she should just ignore people bashing her [them] just like what Marcos Jr. is doing.
“Simula po nung tumapak ako sa entablado kasama ng UniTeam, sabi nila bayad daw po ako. Bayad po ba kayo? Katulad ni BBM, huwag na po nating patulan.”

Toni was reportedly paid 120 million pesos to endorse Marcos Jr. and become their constant rally host.
However, veteran columnist Cristy Fermis defended her from the allegations and said it cannot be proven because no one from both camps will admit to the payment.
Fermin also mentioned Gonzaga and her husband Paul Soriano’s close relationship to Marcos Jr. debunked the “bayaran” issue.
Meanwhile, social media personality and content creator @itsACslife thanked Toni for giving him new idea for his content.
Quote tweeting Lian Buan’s tweet, AC laughed hard while thanking Toni for new content.
“BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA THANKS FOR THE NEW CONTENT ATE TIN”
