This is the opinion of Heart Evangelista about the Anti-Terror Bill
Kapuso actress Heart Evangelista expressed her views on Anti-Terror Bill after the Senate has approved this.
Just recently, Heart received bashing for not using her social media accounts in expressing her stand regarding the current issues in society. Several celebrities have been vocal on sharing their opinion, points of view, or stand on certain topics with social relevance or about politics.
However, Heart is not as vocal as many of them. That was perhaps the reason why a netizen called her post and her hashtag “problematic”. The actress responded by saying that the negative comment made her so sad.
Following this, the wife of Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero posted her views on the Anti-Terro Bill. Based on the article from GMA Entertainment, she deactivated the comment section of this post but as of the writing, it is activated.
Apparently, the activation came after a comment from a netizen demanding her to “open her purse”.
In her post, Heart Evangelista said she has been reading the bill and talking to people to educate her more about this. “I don’t usually talk about my political views because I am no expert but today, I’m choosing to speak out and to use my platform to take a stand,” she said.
The Kapuso star admitted that she is not an expert when it comes to this matter but she do care. “I know in my heart that this is wrong. I cannot support a law that could easily be abused just because they say that they won’t abuse it,” she added.
Heart also shared this quote: “The history of liberty is a history of limitations on governmental power, not the increase of it.” With this, she said that she hopes that those in the power will take the lesson from history.
