Don’t vote for bets with bad boy image, popular TV actor ‘Ser Chief’ urges voters
MANILA, Philippines – Don’t fall for candidates with a “bad boy image,” they are just for movies, so said actor Richard Yap popularly known as “Ser Chief.”
At a press conference in Makati City on Tuesday, Yap called on the people not to vote for candidates who have a “bad” track record or those sporting a “bad boy image.”
“When it comes to things like this, endorsing candidates, wala sa pera ’yan. Nasa bilib mo sa tao,” he said.
“I’m not doing this for the money. In fact, like what the senator said, this is free and voluntary. We are doing this because I want to bring him back to the Senate. Kasi Kailangan natin ng tao na may integrity, may track record, yung malinis image (Because we need someone who has integrity, track record, good image),” Yap said of former Senator Ramon “Jun” Magsaysay Jr. who was also at the press conference.
“Hindi dapat binababalik yung mga taong yung marami ng track record, marami ng bad record. We should be able to discern for ourselves kung sino ang dapat nasa Senado. Yung mga bad boy image, pwede lang yan sa mga movies e. Pero in real life, it should be the good guys who you should be voting for,” he said.
(We should not bring back those people who have bad records. We should be able to discern for ourselves who should be in the Senate. Those who have bad image are just good for movies. But in real life, it should be the good guys who you should be voting for.)
“Alam natin na mga babae attracted din sila sa mga bad boy pero pag nasa labas binubugbog kayo. Dito na kayo sa totoong tao. Malalaman nyo na these are the people who can help you and they are sincere in doing this for you,”’ Yap added.
(We all know that some women are also attracted to bad boys but they end up being beaten up by these toughies. Let’s go for the real man. You will know that these are the people who can help you and they are sincere in doing this for you.)
Asked to identify those who are now in the Senate with a “bad boy image,” the actor said: “I don’t think it would be proper to name names so kayo na lang. I think we all know there are some people who have the track record that speaks for itself. Malalaman nyo naman. So nasa inyo na yan. I think we are very mature voters already .”
Yap disclosed that there were other candidates who asked for his help, some he said had even asked him to name his price in exchange for his endorsement but he opted to voluntary support Magsaysay for free.
