QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – We haven’t seen the end of it.
First, Director Daryl Yap and actress Ai Ai de las Alas were declared persona non grata by the City Council of Quezon City for a parody video in which de las Alas mimicked Kyusi Mayor Joy Belmonte in a monologue in front of a re-imagined seal of the city.
Now, the Office of Vice President Leni Robredo has also declared actor Edu Manzano persona non grata for his role as vice president in the long-running ABS-CBN teleserye ”Ang Probinsiyano.” Manzano appeared in many scenes in front of what appeared to be the seal of the Office of the Vice President.
It wasn’t clear whether de las Alas will be banned from stepping into the Kyusi territory, or whether Manzano will be banned from the entire Philippines altogether.
