Remember when we said that more influencers should give a crap once in a while given their huge… well, influence? Well, Albie Casiño inadvertently answered our prayers on Instagram, when he sarcastically congratulated everyone for ‘voting wisely’ in 2016.
‘My face when they said ECQ season 2’, the actor wrote. ‘Congrats to everyone who voted nung 2016. Sana natutuwa kayo ngayon. Vote wisely sa 2022.’

But as it turns out, Albie’s jab towards the country’s dire situation wasn’t appreciated by the administration supporters. The mob came armed to the teeth with their classic hits, leaving comments such as ‘Anong ambag mo?’, ‘Ikaw na mag-presidente’, and our fave ‘Ikaw na matalino’, because apparently, being informed is a crime.
But instead of retreating into his shell, Albie chose violence. I mean, his retorts were rated E for everyone. No person, regardless of sex, gender, and social status was safe from his bars.
It’s not exactly what we had in mind when we advocated for ‘educating followers’, but I guess getting attacked and insulted by thousands of random strangers doesn’t exactly put you in an educating mood.
