Showbiz personalities aren’t the only ones mourning the passing of veteran showbiz columnist Ricky Lo.

Even politikos showered the long-time Philippine Star entertainment editor with tributes upon learning of his passing Wednesday (May 5).

“He was a media icon, deservedly so; an immortal in his genre. Ricky Lo. You didn’t exist socially if he didn’t mention you,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. tweeted.

Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos Recto was heartbroken over Lo’s death.

“Thank you Ricky. I love you my friend!!! I will miss you. Rest in peace, [clasped hands emoji] [clasped hands emoji] [clasped hands emoji] [heart emoji] [heart emoji] [heart emoji] [crying face emoji] [crying face emoji] [crying face emoji],” she said in an art card posted on Instagram.

“Our sincere condolences and prayers,” she wrote in the caption.

“RIP Ricky LO an entertainment media institution for many decades,” tweeted Senator Sonny Angara.

In a statement, Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto called Lo’s columns “the first drafts of the history of Philippine cinema.”

“His medium may have been prose, but he had a way of writing that comes out like moving pictures as entertaining as the acting on the silver screen that he spent half a century writing about,” the senator said.

The Philippine Star said Lo died on Tuesday (May 4). He was 75. The cause of his death was not disclosed.
