Direk Darryl Yap shared his reaction to the issue between Angelica Panganiban and Red Cross Subic
Actress Angelica Panganiban ranted on social media against Red Cross Subic and this received a reaction from movie director Darryl Yap who is a “Batang Gapo”.
Angelica claimed that the swabbing facility in the said area did not treat them well. She accused the frontliners or swabbers of not giving them attention by attending to other people who came later than them.
However, those who are working in Red Cross Subic debunked the allegations from the actress and defended that she and her companions did not wait in the assigned area but inside their car.
In a Facebook post of Direk Darryl who has been living in Olongapo, he shared his reaction to the issue. The filmmaker shared a screenshot of the post of a certain Dra. G. who said that Angelica Panganiban should issue an apology.
“You should make a public apology to all the staff of Red Cross Subic! You have no appointment, siningit ka lang. Pinuntahan pa kayo sa car to do the swab while yung iba, may appointment ay nakapila sa tent or nasa ambulance. Siniraan mo pa talaga yung mga taong tumulong sa iyo,” the post of the doctor stated.
Direk Darryl said that he is saddened by the incident. He said that even though he is very close to SBMA Chairperson/Administrator Abe Connor, he never used this connection in order to receive special treatment.
The director added that even the SBMA Chairperson would tell him to wait in the queue and not to get the special treatment despite their closeness.
Direk Darryl clarified that he is directing his post to the Red Cross Subic personnel and not to Angelica Panganiban. “Tapos may mababalitaan akong pwede naman palang magpasundot sa car; or sa artista lang pwede? pag direktor kaya pwede sa motor?” he said.
“This post is actually an expression of disappointment sa Red Cross, dahil pwede naman pala sa car; hindi naman ako pwedeng madisappoint kay Angelica kasi desisyon naman ng RedCross Subic na iswab sya sa car,” the filmmaker stressed.
