Multi-awarded actress Elizabeth Oropesa will have both of her feet cut if she was paid to support the presidential bid of former Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

“Ipapuputol ko ‘yung dalawa kong paa. Gagapang na lang ako kung binabayaran kaming mga artista kay BBM!” Oropesa said in a statement send to reporters by the camp of Marcos.

Oropesa, 67, who is from Bicol known to be bailiwick of Vice President Leni Robredo, said she has long been a supporter of Marcos.

She said since 2013 she has been part of Bongbong Marcos Loyalist International.

“Pangarap ng mga katulad kong loyalista ay ang makitang makaupo ulit ang isang Marcos at si Bongbong yun,” Oropesa added. “Kapag nangyari na makaupo sa Malakanyang si BBM, masaya na kaming ipipikit ang aming mga mata. Karamihan sa amin senior citizens na hindi lang halata.”

Meanwhile, Oropesa said she does not feel bad for her fellow artists who performed in the Robredo campaign if it is true that they were paid to perform.

“Never akong nakipagbalitaktakan, nakipagmurahan at nagsasabi ng masama tungkol sa mga artistang sumasama kay Leni Robredo at hindi ko rin ugaling manira ng kandidato nila,” the actress said.

Oropesa is among those organizing rallies for Marcos and vice presidential candidate Sara Duterte in various areas of the country.

“In fact, kung minsan naatasan akong maging representative din ni Inday Sara sa mga lugar na hindi nya napupuntahan. Ako ang nagbabasa ng kanyang mga mensahe, speeches, ganyan. Lahat ng grupo sa magkakaibang lugar ay iniimbitahan ko at ako rin ay maaari rin nilang imbitahan,” she added.
