Actor Robin Padilla apologizes to Army Col. Mike Logico over taunting remarks with his “militia challenge” amid dispute at the West Philippine Sea.
Recently, the actor took to the social networking site, Facebook wherein he dared retired senior associate justice Antonio Carpio and other opposition Senators Francis Pangilinan and Risa Hontiveros to be part of the militia he’s going to form.
“Kung talagang matapang kayo, sumama kayo sa akin. Tayo ay maging militia. Tapatan natin ‘yung militia nung mga Chinese. Pumunta tayo doon, lumayag tayo, mangisda tayo doon. Tumambay din tayo roon kasi atin ito. Yung aking alok sa inyo ay seryoso. Pina-public ko ito para hindi tayo nagbobolahan lang,” Daniel Padilla said.
Army Col. Mike Logico was among those who responded to the challenge of the actor.
But in a comment, the director of the joined and combined training center of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, told Robin to get a haircut first.
Then, he urged the actor to apply for MNSA and CGSC, where he will be his instructor.
“If you make it past Step 3, you will have the minimum competency to become an RCDG Commander. That will put you in a slightly better position to challenge anyone,” said the Army colonel.
But Robin Padilla backpedaled with his “militia challenge.”
“Sir, you being a decorated ranking officer of the army, I salute you. I apologize if in any way I have offended you with my video. Sir, it’s too late for me to dream and become a highly trained officer like you. If destiny allows it, I will see you there in the high seas not as a foe but as a civilian ally,” said.
