Angel Locsin On That Famous 'Drag' Scene That Turned Into a Mocha Meme
Actress Angel Locsin has finally reacted to the old meme of her dragging sometimes actor and recently resigned Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson by the hair.
The meme came from a confrontation scene from Locsin's 2013 movie Four Sisters and a Wedding. In the movie, Angel's character dragged the lead dancer of the Mocha Girls on the floor and threatened to hit her. Mocha's character had been cheating with Angel's on-screen boyfriend, Bernard Palanca.
“Kaya pala minsan nagtataka ako bakit ako nagva-viral, eh," admitted Angel in an interview with Philstar during her recent endorsement launch. "Sabi ko, ‘Ba’t ako nagva-viral, anong nangyayari sa ’kin? Tapos ‘pag tinignan ko, trending, trending, trending. Ah, yun pala yun!”
Angel didn't mention if she's kept in touch with her costar, but when asked if they were on good terms, she answered, "Sana okay kami!" The ABS-CBN actress also described Mocha as “super nice” when they did the scene.
“Nilapitan ko siya kung okay ba siya,” Angel recalled. "Hindi naman totoo ang eksena. Though, nasugatan siya ng slight dun. Kinakamusta ko siya kung papano. Wala naman siyang reklamo nung time na 'yun.”
Angel is amused that netizens still share the clip and talk about it online.
“Nakakatawa lang na kung papano ginagamit ngayon, ba’t ako nagtre-trend minsan. Nakakatawa lang. Natatawa lang ako sa nangyari.”
