In the wake of voicing her conclusion about previous love group accomplice Aga Muhlach’s remark on Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, Lea Salonga said that the legislator too has the privilege to censure.

The Tony Award-winning vocalist performing artist initially disclosed her contemplations on Muhlach’s opinions about the congressperson in a Facebook post made by humorist Ogie Diaz. She stated: “As nationals of this republic, we have the privilege to reprimand our pioneers. A right, and an obligation.”

nother Ogie, netizen Ogie Rosa (@ogie_rosa), at that point scrutinized the vocalist for her announcement. “Ayaw magsalita tungkol sa expansion pero “it’s our obligation to condemn” pagdating kay Trillanes? Truly, what is transpiring, @MsLeaSalonga?” the netizen got down on her about Twitter last Wednesday, Oct. 24.

(You would prefer not to talk up about swelling, however “it’s our obligation to scrutinize” with regards to Trillanes? Truly, what is transpiring, Lea Salonga?)

Lea Salonga safeguards Aga: It is our privilege and obligation to condemn our pioneers. Ayaw magsalita tungkol sa inflation pero “it’s our duty to criticize” pagdating kay Trillanes? Seriously, what is happening to you, @MsLeaSalonga?

“Apparently the internet is also selective in which posts of mine to highlight,” Salonga responded after she was called out. “Sen. Trillanes has every right to criticize, too. It’s his job.”

And while she thinks it is great that the senator is “as outspoken as he is,” she added, “But by the same token, he needs to be open to criticism from others, too.”

Apparently, the internet is also selective in which posts of mine to highlight. Sen. Trillanes has every right to criticize, too. It’s his job. And it’s great that he is as outspoken as he is. But by the same token, he needs to be open to criticism from others, too.

Another netizen, Elmer Reyes (@docelmer63), was the next to question Salonga: “how about the president of the Philippines then? are you saying its ok for him to persecute – not so much as prosecute – people who ‘criticize’ him or his policies?”

“Persecute, no. It’s never okay to go after someone just because they disagree with you,” Salonga replied. “Prosecute, only if that offender did something against the law.”

Persecute, no. It’s never okay to go after someone just because they disagree with you. Prosecute, only if that offender did something against the law. But even then. Makes no sense. My opinion only.

While Salonga was outspoken about her political views, fellow singer Jim Paredes had this advice to fellow artists wanting to speak up for what they believe in: “Yes, we ALL have freedom of expression. But what we don’t have [and] never will is guarantee that everyone will agree with what we say.”

To everyone out there but most especially artists. Yes, we ALL have freedom of expression. But what we don’t have & never will is guarantee that everyone will agree with what we say. So express away but own what you say. Freedom has consequences.
Ganun lang run.
