MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Shortly after Rod Duterte announced there will be no joint inauguration with VP-elect Leni Robredo, singer and Yellow spokesperson Jim Paredes went on a tirade on his social media account to criticize the president-elect.

Duterte had announced that his June 30 presidential inaugruration will be held at the Rizal Hall in Malacañang and that only 500 people will be invited and served appetizers of maruya (banana fritters) and buko (coconut) juice.

Robredo, on the other hand, said that she respects Duterte’s decision and will have her own simple inauguration in Metro Manila.

Paredes urged his sprinkling of fans to boycott the Duterte inauguration and to celebrate with Robredo instead.image

Reacting to Paredes’ comment, the Duterte camp told The Adobo Chronicles, “how can he (Paredes) boycott the presidential inauguration when he is not even invited to attend?”

Meanwhile, Paredes’ call for a boycott gained one supporter, fellow Yellow spokesperson singer/actress Cynthia Patag.
