Jake Ejercito appealed to the public to put their loyalty to the country and not to candidates they’re supporting, in light of the upcoming 2022 elections.

“Never be so loyal that you betray your country,” Ejercito said on his Twitter page on Thursday, Feb. 24.

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.”
