TV personality and host Melai Cantiveros took to Instagram on Sunday to voice her disgust with a supporter of presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte who had supposedly wished that her own daughter would be raped.

In her post, Cantiveros said that while she kept mum about being bashed on social media because she is backing administration candidate Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, she cannot just ignore the remark  by a certain Shawie Enriquez attacking her and her family.

“Hindi ako nakikipag away kahit binabash ako dahil si Mar Roxas ang napili at gusto kong presidente . Pero kung sasabihin mo saken “sana ma-rape ang anak ko “—-ay ibang usapan na yan. Lalaban ako dahil hindi na tama ang punto mo. Pati anak kong baby na babae idadamay mo!?” Cantiveros said.


Cantiveros and husband Jason Francisco are known Roxas supporters, having appeared in various ads for the former Interior secretary.

The TV celebrity then addressed the supporters of the feisty mayor.

Cantiveros  said that she was willing to file a case against Enriquez.

“Sa mga kaibigan kong supporter ni Duterte tingin nyo ba tama pa tong ginawa ng kapwa nyong supporter? Handa ako mag file ng kaso sa taong to,” she said.

Duterte is currently the front-runner in various opinion polls despite drawing flak for his rape remark on Australian lay missionary Jacqueline Hamill in a recent campaign sortie.
