After it was revealed that Shopee tapped Toni to be its new brand ambassador, the actress-host received bashing. There were also who posted online that the online shopping company terminated a huge number of its employees in order to pay for Toni’s talent fee as the new endorser.

In line with this, Aiko Melendez shared her thoughts, based on the article in Manila Bulletin. The Quezon City councilor stressed that Toni Gonzaga is not connected with the retrenchment of employees.

“Sana magstick po tayo na mali ang timing ng ginawa Shopee sa pagalis ng mga tauhan nila at pagbabawas. Dahil dipo ito makatao. Pero mali naman ang atakihin nyo ang kinuha nilang endorser dahil iba ang political leanings nya,” Aiko said.

Aiko also said that perhaps the online shopping company tapped Toni to be its endorser in order to make their sales go up. She hopes that this is the case. The seasoned actress also stressed that no matter what people will do, it is a fact that Toni is one of the top endorsers.

Wag na kayo maging divided para sa isang Company, Maging malawak sana ang pag iisip ng mga tao. Sa Shopee nyo icall ang attention nyo dahil sila ang nagalis ng mga empleyado nila and not Toni!,” Aiko Melendez said.

A netizen commented that it is wrong timing that Shopee got Toni Gonzaga as an endorser with a high talent fee after the mass layoff that it did to its employees. Aiko replied to this with, “Why blame it on the endorser?”
