Naging kontrobersiyal ang latest vlog TV host-actress na si Toni Gonzaga sa kanyang YouTube channel.
Ito ay matapos umani ng batikos mula sa ilang netizens ang ginawa niyang interview kay Bongbong Marcos.
Agad na naging trending topic sa Twitter ang nasabing panayam dahil na rin sa pagpuna ng netizens.
Hindi ito ang unang pagkakataon na may mga politikong nai-feature sa YouTube channel ng Kapamilya host.
Matatandaang nakapanayam na rin niya sina Vice President Leni Robredo, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, at iba pa.
Kaya naman depensa ng ilan, ginawa lamang ni Toni ang interview kay Bongbong sa ngalan ng pagiging “neutral.”
Ngunit ilang netizens pa rin ang pumuna at nagsabing nadismaya sila sa ginawa ng host at tinawag siyang ‘DDS’ at ‘Marcos apologist’.
Narito ang ilang tweets ng netizens.
Toni Talks? More like Toni Talks-ic!!! Has a platform and yet this is how she chooses to use it, to give space for ppl like BBM to take back their power. Disappointed at Toni, but not surprised at this point. 🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️🙅🏻♀️ pic.twitter.com/Kn39D03di6

Just watched Toni’s interview with BBM & here are my takeways: 1. He lived and is living a privileged life, hence can be reality-detached. 2. He has no remorse on anything that his father did. 3. He sees his political career as his purpose in life as if we owe it to him. Ughhhh!

I mean, Toni interviewing BBM coz she's neutral is pure BS. In our current political climate, you cannot stay neutral you must take a side. Good over evil. All for clout lang ate Teddy nyo 🤑 pic.twitter.com/9fXa8VHJFp

I didn't mind he was interviewed, Toni is a host and she has the privilege to interview whoever she chose to waste her time on.
BUT as a host it's your responsibility to address and research about your subject and ask important questions.

Hindi pwedeng argument ang "Si Leni rin naman inimbitahan ko".
Sa buwan ng Martial Law Commemoration, sa panahong talamak ang historical revisionism, at nalalapit na kampanya para sa eleksyon, ito ay kasalanan sa alala ng kasaysayang sinapit natin kay Marcos. #NeverAgain pic.twitter.com/uMBsRAWtfs

Dapat ipaalala kay Toni Gonzaga na si Marcos ang unang nagpasara sa ABS-CBN. At sa gitna ng laban ng mga Kapamilyang Filipino sa sakit, sa korapsyon, sa kamatayan, ang pag-interview sa anak ng diktador ay tacit na endorsement ng values na kinakatawan ng pamilya ito–

ESSENTIAL read re: Toni Gonzaga's BBM interview. Nowhere in the interview did she mention the deaths, tortures, and incarcerations of Filipinos during Martial Law (of which there are 70,000)…perhaps the widest stroke on the rancid picture of Marcos' tyranny. Irresponsible. https://t.co/FWdTkn3mAU

Sa lahat ng pinagdaanan natin, hindi pa rin talaga naiintindihan ni Toni Gonzaga yung responsibility niya bilang artist na may malaking following.
Knowing the sincerity of her efforts for ABS-CBN’s workers last year, ito yung hindi ko maintindihan – what’s not clicking, Toni?

I bet this BBM interview by Toni Gonzaga probably has the highest number of thumbs down and that says a lot. This wouldn't have been a big issue had BBM not declared his intention to run for a higher office. At the very least, she could have at least asked him the hard questions. pic.twitter.com/Xv7QQacjno

Toni Gonzaga should interview the families of Martial Law victims kahit isa man lang. Now that would be fair

“a LOT OF PEOPLE were saying …
and to SOME PEOPLE…” 😡 tangina 🤬
Toni Gonzaga is an enabler of the evil Marcoses and will always be one. Her interview with VP Leni was just a pretext after all. We’ve been taken for a ride. pic.twitter.com/AIoL17mSo1

On Toni Talks, BBM says he wants the new generation to know that he is “the son of the longest lasting President who brought the Philippines into the modern world.”
Malamang naman sa 2 dekada dahil sa martial law eh talagang umabot na sa modern times ang Pinas.

No, Toni used Leni to mask her blatant act of historical revisionism with “neutrality.” 🙂
I’m so sick of seeing enablers with huge following.. but it is what it is and Toni G has an audience 🥴 so let’s just share the Leni video instead. https://t.co/hOTG9alkY2

There's a difference between doing interviews with a critical line of questioning to unveil the truth and hold the person accountable; with doing interviews to enable historical revisionism, trumpet lies, and amplify propaganda.
Know where you should stand.#NeverForget

Toni Gonzaga should know the quote by a bishop:
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality” https://t.co/qQX5g3RATX

Toni Gonzaga is a smart woman. In order to give Bongbong Marcos a platform without looking like a supporter, she launched this series interviewing different personalities. Galing.
