Arci Muñoz defended her duty as an Air Force reservist as she hit back at a netizen who accused her of being “tough” only on social media but doesn’t have the strength to save the country.

On Instagram, the actress shared some photos from her training as she donned the Air Force uniform while doing her duties, in commemoration of Independence Day on June 12.


In the comment section, a netizen asserted, “Question is, will you tread to mudd and bleed when the time comes to save our sovereignty? [It’s] so easy to look tough on [social media].”


Muñoz responded, explaining that being in the force isn’t equivalent to going to war, as the role of a reservist is focused more on promoting peace.

“Question is, did [you] even try to make an effort in serving your country? Do you even know why [reservists] exist? And our duty? Being in the force doesn’t mean you need to go to war; for me, it’s more [about] promoting peace. It’s so easy to talk shit and look tough on [social media], no?” the actress remarked.

The “StarStruck” alumna also previously responded to the criticism about celebrities joining the force, explaining that they try to influence people in the way that they know how.

“So ginagawa ko lang kung ano yung iniatas sa akin na responsibilidad bilang isang Air Force Reservist. I think we are all doing our part. Siguro hindi lang sila masyadong nag-open up about it,” she told PEP at the time.

“Alam niyo, yun pa lang bilang isang influencer, kasi that’s what we call ourselves somehow; we influence people; yun pa lang pagsali nila bilang isang reservist, undergoing that training; malaking bagay na yun; malaking tulong na rin yun,” added the actress.


In 2020, Muñoz officially gained the title “sergeant” after completing her Basic Citizen Military Training at Clark Air Base.
