Agot Isidro warns politicos in socmed: ‘Magsilbi sa Pilipino, di sa isang tao’
Aside from her acting chops, Agot Isidro is known for being vocal on various national issues. She is also unafraid to call out those who she believes are oppressors of society, whenever she sees an injustice.
Once again, she was fearless to speak her mind as she talked about local politicians recently. She voiced out her opinion on her Twitter page yesterday, April 30.
Without naming names, she first said “Hats off to you,” addressing “politicos” who engage in social media. Isidro then gave a warning: “But if you do so to curry favor to one who’s clearly inept (& with dwindling numbers), advice lang: rethink your strategy. Nagigising na ang mga tao. (People are slowly waking up.)”
Para sa mga politico who engage on socmed. Hats off to you.
But if you do so to curry favor to one who's clearly inept (& with dwindling numbers), advice lang: rethink your strategy. Nagigising na ang mga tao.
Sa totoo lang, umayos kayo! Magsilbi sa Pilipino, di sa isang tao.

As if to make sure that her warning is clear, she ended her post with a challenge to those who are in public service: “Sa totoo lang, umayos kayo! Magsilbi sa Pilipino, di sa isang tao.” (To tell you the truth, get it together! Serve the Filipino, not just one person.)
Some of her followers lauded her for being brave to call out the public servants, with some even urging her to run for public office in time for the next elections in 2019.
While there are also those who bash the actress for being outspoken about her views, she appears unmoved and continually posts her social commentaries in social media. She has called out politicians at the House of Representatives who voted in favor of the P1,000 budget for the Commission on Human Rights. The actress was also vocal about her thoughts on the report about China building air and naval bases in the West Philippine Sea. JB
