Many lauded Chiara Zambrano and her crew for bravely facing the Chinese military in an effort to shed light on their presence in contested waters. Not Robin Padilla.

The actor took to social media to lecture them about it.

Posting a statement from AFP spokesperson Maj. Gen. Edgard Arevalo, who urged journalists to coordinate with them “so they can be protected while in the practice of their profession,” Robin wrote as caption: “Wag po tayo maghanap ng away…”

He added, “Hindi na po ito local dirty politics na puro palitan lang ng mga salita.

“Wag tayong mag apply na maging biktima dito sa stand off na ito.

“We should not be doing that my dearest countrymen.

“Kung hindi nyo mapigil ang sarili niyo and you want to do something brave never be a victim better wish for martyrdom.

“Papasok kayo ron tapos magtatakbo din pala kayo na parang bata anong klaseng halimbawa ng ating pagkapilipino sa mga Tsino?

“Handa naman kayong samahan ng AFP sa inyong coverage para Maiwasan ang mga ganitong ganap.

“Military engagement is the last thing we need.”

If you think Robin is afraid of the Chinese, think again.

He said, “Kung nakasulat sa kapalaran ng Pilipinas na mapalaban dyan wala tayo magagawa pero wag natin dapat madaliin.

“Wag din natin ilagay sa Alanganin ang US of America. Ang sitwasyon sa South China Sea is beyond our political and military capacity.

“Maaaring maihambing nga ito ng kasaysayan sa missile crisis sa Cuba nong panahon ni JFK magkaiba Lang ang sitwasyon at ang mga main players ay ang 2 super power sa ngayon.”

Reactions to his post were mixed.

Some of the comments:

“Nakalulungkot lang na tila tayo pa ang nangte-tresspass. Back in Duterte’s presidential campaign, he has been so vocal na hindi sya papayag na makuha yan ng China saying all sorts of strong words that’s why pinuri talaga s’ya ng mga tao. I voted for him but I am extremely disappointed as to how he’s handling this issue.”

“Ang mga nakaraang administration ang dapat managot jan, hindi nila dapat hinayaan ang China na mag tambak or mag start mag tayo ng mga building or military base nila. Sa Island nayan. Huli na si PRRD ng siyay umopo nakapag simula na ang China mag tayo jan ng mga building nila. Kaya dina basta2 mapapaalis ng ganon2 lang.”

“Hindi naman nakikipag away Mr. Padilla. Iba ang may paninindigan sa walang ginagawa. Hindi naman sa lahat ng pagkakataon ay komo kaalyadong kaalyado mo ang administrasyon ay palagi mo silang idedepensa kahit may mali na.”
