Janus Del Prado to trolls: ‘Ibahin niyo naman script niyo’
Janus Del Prado seems to be undeterred by the bashing of netizens, whom he said are just recycling the same old “script” again and again.
“Ibahin niyo naman ang script niyo, memorize ko na eh (Please change your script, I already have it memorized),” Del Prado said in an open letter to “trolls” he shared on Instagram yesterday, March 24.
“Paano po maging bobo, Dilawan, Kaw na kaya mag Presidente, Dito samin sa (insert country) may pandemya din pero di kami nagrereklamo, Sayang idol pa naman kita, etc.,” the actor listed down as examples.
(“How to be stupid,” “Dilawan,” “how about you replace the president,” “here in our [insert country] there is also a pandemic but we do not complain,” “what a pity, you used to be my idol,” etc.)

“Ibahin niyo naman para hindi halata na iisa lang nagpapasweldo sa inyo (Change it so that it is not too obvious that you have the same employers),” he quipped.
Back in 2016, a self-confessed “professional troll” told Inquirer that they are run “like a call center operation,” having organized teams and leaders who assign trolling tasks to them. They reportedly earn P2,000 to P3,000 a day.
Del Prado is among the vocal celebrities who express their opinions on national and political issues. Most recently, he slammed those defending the government from criticisms amid the apparent mishandling of the health crisis.
“Yung mga obob dyan sabi [nang] sabi na wag namin sisihin ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas dahil di nila kasalanan na may virus, eh sino sisisihin namin? Gobyerno ng Mars?” he posted on Instagram also yesterday.
(To the idiots out there telling us to stop blaming the Philippine government because they did not create the virus, who do you want us to blame? The government of Mars?)
“Totoo na di nila kagagawan na may Covid pero responsibilidad nila yan. Commander in Chief diba? So command responsibility. Otherwise wag na kayo tumakbo next election,” Del Prado stressed.
(It is true that they did not create COVID-19, but it is their responsibility. Commander in Chief, right? So command responsibility. Otherwise, just do not run in the next elections.)

“Responsibilidad niyo ang tumulong, magmalasakit, at ang kapakanan ng mga Pilipino. Simple. Kung di na kaya. Baba na. Tapos,” he stressed in the caption, addressing politicians.
(It is your responsibility to help, care, and you are responsible for the well-being of Filipinos. Simple. If you cannot do it, step down. Done.) /ra
