MANILA, Philippines – TV host-actress Mariel Rodriguez expressed her disappointment over the black propaganda against Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. This is also the reason why she changed her mind on her vice presidential candidate.

Although the “It’s Showtime” host didn’t drop a name, it’s easy to know that she was referring to Rep. Leni Robredo, who is the only female candidate for vice president.
In a previous Instagram post, she had also written that her vice president is Robredo
Singer Richard Poon shared almost the same sentiment.
He said that although he admires Robredo, he won’t vote for her because he’s tired of yellow control.
Both Rodriguez, Poon and their respective spouses, Robin Padilla and Maricar Reyes are known supporters of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
According to an article published by Rappler, the latest SWS pre-election survey showed that the vice presidential race is a close fight between Robredo and Sen. Bongbong Marcos.
Celebrities who expressed their support for Robredo are Sharon Cuneta, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes, couple Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano and Gary Valenciano, Agot Isidro, Bituin Escalante and Tutti Caringal.
