The actor further explained what he said by reposting a photo of his statement on his Facebook page on Friday, Feb. 25. He then mentioned political parties in the country, including his own family name.
“My tweet refers to DDS (Diehard Duterte Supporters), Marcos loyalists, Dilawans, Kakampinks, etc. And yes, even Estrada loyalists,” he added. “Be loyal to the country and your principles, not to politicians.”
Ejercito earlier expressed his support to presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo by showing a photo of himself and his daughter Ellie, where he can be seen wearing a shirt with the phrase “Laban Leni” on it.
