Gabby Con­cep­cion on Duterte er­ror: ‘We all make mis­takes’

Tempo - - Entertainment - (Robert R. Re­quintina)

KAPUSO ac­tor Gabby Con­cep­cion laughed off the mis­take com­mit­ted by Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte who made ref­er­ence to him in one of his speeches re­cently.

“We all make mis­takes. Thank you for watch­ing ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ sir Pres­i­dent. #DU30 #ika6­nau­tos,” said Con­cep­cion on In­sta­gram.

At the 120th an­niver­sary of the De­part­ment of Jus­tice held at the Philip­pine In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, Duterte said in his speech: :“Ikaw? Gabby Con­cep­cion, mukha kang pera, p ***** ina ka. E, to­too man. E, sus.”

It turned out that Duterte was re­fer­ring to Gabby Lopez, chair­man and CEO of the gi­ant net­work ABS-CBN Cor­po­ra­tion.

But Duterte men­tioned the name of the Kapuso ac­tor in his talk.

The gaffee be­came one of the trend­ing top­ics on so­cial me­dia.

“Na os­pi­tal bigla dahil sa mis­taken iden­tity #mis­taken #ac­ci­dent #ikaan­im­nau­tos #stray #wrong #wrong­tar­get #philip­pines,” said Con­cep­cion in a series of posts on In­sta­gram.

Con­cep­cion, who just won the Asian Star Prize at the 12th Seoul In­ter­na­tional Drama Awards in South Korea, is said to be a sup­porter of Duterte.

Con­cep­cion is the star of the pop­u­lar af­ter­noon tele­serye “Ika-6 Na Utos” on the Kapuso net­work.

The Pres­i­dent cor­rected him­self in the suc­ceed­ing state­ment of the same speech.

“I know, be­cause when I ran for Pres­i­dent, not a lot of peo­ple do­nated money for my cam­paign. So last minute… you lis­ten, Gabby Lopez. I placed an ad­ver­tise­ment [in ABS-CBN. You ac­cepted my ₱2 mil­lion and you never showed my ad­ver­tise­ment.

“You ac­cept my money with noth­ing to show for it. You keep on re­ceiv­ing money in the name of greed. And yet you talk as if… you talk trash of the gov­ern­ment… paint us as cor­rupt. Ex­cuse me. I am not that kind. I would not have sur­vived,” said Duterte in his talk.
