Here’s what Rachel Alejandro said about being mistaken for the Vice President
Rachel is one of the prominent personalities in the Philippine music industry. However, just recently, her name was dragged into the issue of politics.
Based on the article in Bandera, her photos have been circulating on social media with this caption: “Nasaan ang bise presidente? Busy naman pala sa Palawan. Ugghh.”
Apparently, there were netizens who thought that Rachel Alejandro was VP Leni Robredo. The Vice President reposted a screenshot of the said post on her Facebook Page.
“Initially confused why a number of people are sending me this. Kalma lang po. Hindi ako yan. Andito po ako sa opisina, wala sa Palawan. Ako na po humihingi ng paumanhin kay Rachel Alejandro,” the government official said.
This came to the knowledge of the singer and she wrote a comment on the Facebook post of the Vice President.
Rachel said that she also got a lot of comment saying that she looks like VP Leni when she posted that said photos. Her reaction to this kind of comments was just a smile.
“Basta pag may movie tungkol sa buhay niyo, may idea na kayo sino ang puedeng mag-portray. I don’t believe we’ve properly met but let me use this opportunity to thank you for all that you do,” Rachel Alejandro added.
VP Leni Robredo apologized to her again and said that she feels flattered to be compared to the singer.
