MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Newton’s third law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Following the impressive Quezon City caravan held this week in support of the candidacies of former Senator Bongbong Marcos for President and Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte for Vice President, Pinklawans (those supporting Vice President Leni Robredo) called for a boycott of Angkas, the motorcycle riding service in Metro Manila. The call for boycott came after hundreds of Angkas drivers joined in the unprecedented motorcade.
Almost immediately, netizens supporting the Marcos-Duterte tandem, took to social media to counter the cancel culture.
The hashtag #SupportAngkas has begun to trend on Twitter and other social media platforms.
Judging by the overwhelming support of Marcos and Duterte, it looks like the cancel culture directed at Angkas will soon be, well, cancelled.
Again, for every action, there is an opposite reaction. And in many cases, the opposite reaction triumphs.
