Aiko Melendez defends Toni Gonzaga: Spare her from your Shopee hate

Aiko Melendez told off bashers of fellow actress Toni Gonzaga at the height of boycott calls for Shopee, an online shopping platform.

Some netizens have called to boycott and uninstall the Shopee app after Gonzaga, a proud Marcos loyalist, was chosen as its new brand ambassador. The announcement came a day after mass layoffs in the e-commerce company, with some claiming employees had to be let go so Shopee can afford Gonzaga’s hefty talent fee.

“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,” said Melendez, now a Quezon City councilor.

“Ang Shopee din lang ang makakaalam na baka kaya kinuha nila si Toni Gonzaga para maisalba also ang sales nila at eventually pag nakabangon sila ihire back ang mga tao,” she added.

The politiko also pointed out a fact: “Whether we like it or not si Toni is one of top endorsers and kapag siya also ang kinukuha maganda ang sales.”

“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!,” the politiko added.
