Jason Abalos did not hesitate to ask for forgiveness from the Filipino people, as he admits that he was among the people who voted for President Rodrigo Duterte back in 2016.
The Kapuso star posted this controversial statement via his Twitter account on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.
He retweeted and a quote on the GMA News regarding the announcement of President Duterte about the issues involving the West Philippine Sea or WPS.
“Isa ako sa mga bumoto dito. Patawarin nyo ako mga kababayan ko, gusto ko lang naman ay pagbabago,”
(I was one of the people who voted [for him]. I am truly sorry, my fellowmen, all I just wanted was change.)

He retweeted a GMA News regarding the announcement of President Duterte about the issues involving the West Philippines Sea or WPS.
The GMA News’ tweet showed the contrast between President Duterte’s statement back in 2016 and his stand now.
“Sinabi ni Pangulong Duterte na gusto man daw niyang pumasok sa Spratly Islands sa West Philippines Sea ay ano naman daw ang makakamit nito. Matatandaang isa sa mga ipinangako ni Duterte noong #Eleksyon2016 ay magje-jet ski siya doon upang maipakitang sakop ito ng Pilipinas.”
(President Duterte said that although he wants to get inside the Spratly Islands on the West Philippines Sea, he does not see any gains from doing so. Back in #Eleksyon2016, Duterte made a memorable declaration that he will ride a jetski going to WPS and show that it indeed belongs to the Philippines.)
