Enrile commiserated with the celebrity vlogger as she bravely fought off critics who berated her featuring an interview with former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on her vlog as the nation got ready to recall the day his father declared Martial Law on September 21, 1972.

Poor Toni Gonzaga. She is a victim of prejudiced minds — people who took undeserved credit and advantage for the so-called people power revolution of 1986. They were totally ignorant of the real facts. They act on the basis of what they heard or imagined,” Enrile wrote on his Facebook account.

As former secretary of national defense, Enrile was known to have planned the martial law regime with Marcos in order to “save the republic” from the clutches of communist rule.

However, Enrile parted ways with Marcos after 14 years in order to help launch the 1986 People Power Revolution, resulting in the collapse of the martial law president’s administration.

Recently, Toni released her vlog “The Greatest Lesson Bongbong Marcos Learned from his Father” and initially drew the ire of a huge number of critics on social media.

Many of them accusing the celebrity vlogger of helping the young Marcos’ next political bid in the upcoming elections. The harshest criticisms came from political activists and most of them staunch critics of the Marcos dictatorship.

Toni appeared to have turned the tide against critics, especially after she came out with a response that supporters and non-fans supported.

I’ve reached a point in my life where I realized that other people’s perception of me is not my responsibility anymore… I feel like I don’t have anymore, the need to explain, to prove, to defend and to hide,” Toni said.
