• Duterte spokesman Peter Laviña calls for boycott of ABS-CBN on Friday, May 6
• Laviña questioned the network’s intention in airing the anti-Duterte political ad which used children
• He also described the ad as a ‘misinformation’ and ‘disturbing’
MANILA, Philippines – Peter Tiu Laviña, the spokesperson for Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, has turned to social media to call for the boycott of Lopez-owned ABS-CBN Network which is set to air the controversial anti-Duterte ads on Friday, May 6 again.
The 30-second clip, which was first aired on Thursday on the Kapamilya Network, draws outrage on social media for using children to denounce Duterte for being a ‘bad example’ to the younger generation.
The anti-Duterte political ad is rumored to be paid for by the camp of Senator Antonio Trillanes, although this cannot be immediately verified.
In his Facebook post, Laviña warned that ABS-CBN will become the source of “the worst political air pollution this election season of negative ads” on Friday. He also lambasted the TV network for allegedly agreeing to air the offensive infomercial to the tune of P20-M when other stations supposedly rejected it.
“Other more fair and environmentally-friendly stations have rejected to air such foul ads against Duterte,” Laviña wrote. “So, now it is money over integrity. Goodbye Truth in Advertising!” (Click here to read more)
