Robin Padilla Asks Drilon To Resign

rob drilonMANILA – Philippine cinema’s ‘bad boy’ has called for the senate president to step down.  In his Instagram account, Padilla posted a picture of an edited and exaggerated body of a pig with Drilon’s face and a caption – ‘Pig and Politician Crossbreeding’.

This came after the senate president initially denied receiving the controversial P50 Million ‘incentives’ after Sen. Jinggoy Estrada’s revelation in his privilege speech. Later on, Drilon ended admitting to have received the amount, but refused to accept it was a bribe.

However, the list that was subsequently released by DBM Sec. Florencio ‘Butch’ Abad showed that he, in fact, received P100 Million, twice the figure he previously declared and the most among the senators who voted in favor of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Along with Padilla’s controversial Instagram post was also a lengthy caption in Filipino that read:

“Ang dating DOJ secretary na nagpakulong sa akin dahil sa salang Kayabangan at pagiging mapusok. Ngayon senador ipakita mo sa mga kabataang Pilipino ang delikadeza at karangalan na inyong sinumpaan kasama ng inyong tungkulin bilang boses at amain ng Inangbayan bilang pinakapinuno ng mataas na kapulungan hinihingi ng Mapayapang Rebolosyon ang inyong pagbibitiw at harapin ang paglilitis ng mga Anak ng Bayan. Oras na para sa tunay na pagbabago at pagkapilipino,”  (The former DOJ secretary who sent me to jail for being arrogant and a hot head. Now, (Mr.) senator, you must show to the Filipino youth the honor and tactfulness you’ve sworn yourself to, along with your duty as the voice and the leader of our Motherland, and being the head of the Upper House (Senate), the Peaceful Revolution calls for your resignation and face the people’s court. Now is the time for a true change and for being a true Filipino)

The said post has drawn mixed reactions from Padilla’s followers. While some agreed with their idol’s rant, others also chided the actor for trying to involve himself in politics.

Drilon has not yet reacted to this issue. He however maintained in several interviews that the additional funds he received all went to infrastructure projects in Iloilo.

Robin Padilla, one of the most popular action stars in local show business was convicted of illegal possession of firearms in 1995 and was sentenced to 21 years imprisonment but was later pardoned in 1998 by former Pres. Fidel V. Ramos. Senate President Franklin Drilon was the Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary under the Ramos administration, he oversaw the conviction of Padilla.

  1. In the Philippines theres many names for corruption and people in power or will be in power has the same tendency of doing it over and over again. What this people need is not resentment nor rebuke, or resignation nor prosecution under the laws they have created. what this people need is a sharp, swift, and grave action directly from the people and openly to the people…that their treachery, together with all their properties and families shall be raised to ground and their ashes be taken to far distant barren lands so not to infect other race with their ravenous plague and for the simple reason that they should be stripped of their title and citizenship for their treason. The time for diplomacy is over. what we do to this people shall determine our resultant future and the outcome of whether similar treason shall again happen. What we should do to these people should both etch en eternal reminder for generation to come and shall keep if not an open wound, a deep scar in our history for everyone to see. I say it again, the age of patience and mercy is over bow we cry for their blood and unleash death to all of them and their families. let their pain be sown in history, their blood purge the fire in which we build anew a strong and united country. When I say all of them shall include not them and their families but also of those who aid them in any ways including those who defended them aid them in their lies. Now is the time to rid our nation of diseases. There is only one penalty for treason universally around the world, a long drop and a sudden stop

  2. Bat di mo sabihan abdul azis sila janggoy, revilla at enrile at may mga nakalap ng ebidensya.

    Yung kay drilon atbp. palabasin mo muna ang ebidensya at ang nag akusa ay dati ng naakusahan ng plunder kasama ama niya.

    Si misuari na nakasira ng kabuhayan at buhay ng tao bat hindi mo rin pasukuin.

    Pumunta ka sa COA at tanungin kung paano nagastos ang pondo na yun.

    padrowing drowing ka pa ng baboy eh kala mo naman napakalinis mo. Sa mga kabaro mo hindi mo patinuin at sabihing huminto na sa kanilang pagpatay ng mga inosenteng sibilyan

  3. Sabihin mo rin yan kay Misuari, ang sumunog ng Zamboanga,nagpahirap sa ating mga kababayan doon. Sabihin mo yan o baka naman ayaw mo dahil kapwa mo sya Muslim? Sige nga? At isa pa, ang kayabangan mo noon ay may kasamang dahas dahil may dala kang armas o baril. Mag aral ka muna Robin. Iba ang pelikula sa tunay na buhay.

  4. Is Robin Padilla planning to run for Senate or Congressman? The actor was convicted for illegal possession of firearms. Now he is mad at someone because he was convicted? If Drilon is going to be castigated, let it be for something we know is just completely wrong. Putting someone in jail for violating the law should not be one of them.

  5. Ang gulo sa Zambo ay pinondohan/pinasimunuan ng mga baboy nato para maibaling ang atensyon ng mga tao mula sa pork barrel scam. Sa mga galit sa muslim o sa mga sundalo, ayan ang ginawa nitong mga baboy sa inyo – magka gulo. Si Misuari ay Muslim, pero gaya ng ibang tao, gaya rin ng ibang Kristyano – ang tao ay natutuksong gumawa ng masama pag natapatan ng pera. hindi ito issue ng muslim o kristyano, issue ito ng mga baboy sa lipunan na kayang maghasik ng lagim at mandamay ng mga pilipino para lang maipag patuloy ang mga kababuyan nila. mag isip naman tayo. napaka daming namatay na sundalo, muslim at mga sibilyan dahil lang sa mga ganid na’to. lhat sila ay ginamit lamang.

  6. Lahat na lang kayo mag resign! At kami na ang papalit!, si robin na lang kaya gawin nating Presidente? Hindi ng munti ah… bawal kc Presidente don Mayor lang. Grabe man.
