Among them is actor Enchong Dee, who had been praised for using his online platform for a good cause – encouraging his followers to research on candidates before voting wisely. He has also expressed his support for senatorial candidates Chel Diokno, Samira Gutoc, and Neri Colmenares.

After the election results, Enchong spoke up about celebrities who do the opposite of what he does – stay silent. “A celebrity who prefers to stay silent during non-election years, and prefers popularity over socio-political conversations, for me, is very much late to voice out their dismay,” he tweeted.



Saab Magalona also took to Twitter to express her disappointment over the post-election “blame game.” 


Angel Locsin, who previously reacted over black propaganda distributed against her bet Neri Colmenares by policemen, continued her tirade online. (READ: Angel Locsin hits black propaganda vs Colmenares: ‘Bakit ‘grabe yung effort para makasira?)  




However, she ended on a more positive note.



Vice Ganda followed suit, stressing the importance of a “democracy” and everyone’s mutual “respect” towards one another’s votes.



TV host Bianca Gonzalez, on the other hand, simply shared her joy over the wins of local bets Vico Sotto, Isko Moreno, and Francis Zamora – the 3 politicians who managed to defeat political giants from the Eusebio and Estrada clans.



Actress Janine Guiterrez, who shared her support for Chel Diokno and Mar Roxas on Twitter, cheekily said that the the elections played out the same way the “malalandi” win over the “magaganda.”




Sugarfree’s Ebe Dancel was blunt about his feelings. 


Gabbi Garcia, on the other hand, tweeted a simple but powerful #SalamatChel hashtag. 



Ella Cruz also pleaded for “vote-buying” never to happen again.



Director Kip Oebanda tweeted about his bet Neri Colmenares, the return of the oligarchs, and his anger that turned into productivity.




He also called on buddy Enchong to share a drink with him.
