Vico Sotto's NBI Inquiry Has Enraged People. And He's Getting Overwhelming Support from Celebrities
Just a few hours after the National Bureau of Investigation summoned mayor Vico Sotto, #ProtectVicoSotto trended across various social media sites. Even Vico himself took to Twitter to defend himself, saying: "They're asking for an 'explanation on the alleged violation of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act (e.g. continuous tricycle operation).' We complied with all directives. Hindi po illegal magbigay ng opinyon. [...] at alam kaya nila na March 24 naging batas ang Bayanihan Act?"
People have rallied behind the Pasig City mayor, and surprisingly, these included celebrities—some outspoken, and some previously mum about politics. Check out some of the celebrity reactions below.
