Comedian Janno Gibbs has hit out at Facebook for allowing cruel posts about actress Kris Aquino's health struggles.
Gibbs posted screenshots on his Instagram page of posts by a netizen that portrayed the Aquino family as dead while the Marcos family was returned to the height of power after Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. was recently inaugurated as President.
The Aquinos have traditionally been political rivals to the Marcos family, since the late Corazon Aquino led the People Power Revolution in 1986 which ousted Ferdinand Marcos Sr. from power and replaced him as president.
Kris Aquino and her brother, the late former president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino, were Corazon's children.
Gibbs said of the offensive posts, "Pure evil. How can Facebook allow this account to continue doing this. To suggest that Kris Aquino is sick as a family curse and seemingly deserves it is just Pure Evil. No other words to describe. And the language. This coming from a lawyer. Is this the Filipino today?"
For the last two months, Aquino had shared on social media about her ongoing battle with multiple autoimmune diseases, including chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis, and EGPA (Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis), an extremely rare form of vasculitis.
"My team of doctors here [and] abroad (we've been closely consulting with a Filipino-American doctor and his team in Houston, Texas. Here the majority of my doctors practice in St Luke's BGC and/or Makati Medical Center except my neurologist who has clinics in Asian, Perpetual & Medical City). They are all worried about organ damage in my heart [and] in my lungs. So, by all means, they tried for me to get to Houston soonest," Aquino wrote.
"The medicine that God willing can help save me doesn't have FDA approval here or in Singapore, and it will be infused into my chemotherapy as my immunosuppressant. Why? I'm allergic to all steroids," she added.
Aquino also later came down with COVID-19, along with two of her sons, Joshua and Bimby.
