Sorsogon Governor Francis “Chiz” Escudero defended actress Toni Gonzaga for lending her platform to defeated vice bresidential bet Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.

Escudero said that Toni has the right to interview anyone because it is her YouTube channel.

“Toni Gonzaga has the freedom & right to interview whomsoever she may want to in her platforms,” said Escudero in a tweet.

The Sorsogon governor, whose father Salvador Escudero served as a minister under the administration of dictator Ferdinand Marcos, said that the public also has the right not to watch the interview.

“Whether or not you agree with the interviewee or her is totally up to you because you too have the freedom & right to watch or not to watch or like/dislike.”

Escudero ended the tweet with a hashtag: #mychannelmyright.

Toni’s YouTube interview with former Senator Bongbong Marcos drew flak from netizens.
