Did Angel Locsin give money to someone from GMA Network?
That’s what a number of netizens are wondering after a video circulated Friday (April 23) showing the actress with a curious sleight of hand.
The video, taken near the community pantry set up by Locsin at Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City, showed the actress seemingly giving something to a man standing on a ledge as she made her way through the crowd.
Pro-administration blogger Mark Lopez, who shared the video on Twitter, asked: “Bakit nag abot ng pera si Angel Locsin sa taga GMA Network? Ano meron?”
Lopez assumed the man greeted by Locsin was from GMA because he was wearing a lanyard with the network’s logo.
“Baka ganyan sya mag abot ng pera para pameryenda – parang patago?” tweeted @reyjuico.
“Kaya naman ang babango nila parati sa media!! Me abutan kasing nagaganap. Alams na,” said @missM_028.
Locsin’s fiance, Neil Arce, denied that the man greeted by Locsin was a reporter from GMA Network.
“People are claiming inabutan daw ni Angel yung reporter. Make up artist po niya yun sa GMA. Where do these people get their news?!?!” he asked in a Facebook post.
GMA Network, for its part, distanced itself from the man.
“Ang nasabing lalaki ay hindi po bahagi ng GMA News and Public Affairs coverage team. Siya po ay isang talent make-up artist ng isang programa ng GMA. Wala pong koneksyon ang GMA sa kanyang pagpunta sa lugar,” it said.
