Add to cart pa din! Taytay Councilor Patrick Alcantara is proud of Toni Gonzaga

TV host and actress Toni Gonzaga drew controversy after being named endorser of an online shopping platform, but a politiko from her hometown continues to be proud of her.

In a Facebook post, Taytay Councilor Patrick Alcantara said Taytay is proud of Gonzaga, a kababayan.

Alcantara quoted a portion of an article where Shopee explained that Gonzaga was chosen as an endorser for her “mass appeal” and not because of her political affiliations.

Netizens had criticized Shopee for hiring a high-profile endorser while laying off workers due to losses.

Others also slammed Shopee for choosing Gonzaga, who had promoted President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. during the campaign.

Alcantara had a different take and congratulated the Gonzaga family for Toni’s new gig.

Looks like he’ll still be active in Shopee!

“Isa sa mga pinagmamalaki ng Taytay, Rizal ang ating kababayan Toni Gonzaga

Congratulations

po Gonzaga Family
