Gabby Concepcion & Sharon Cuneta Both Mentioned By Pres. Rodrigo Duterte In The Same Speech, He Curses One And Praises The Other

GABBY CONCEPCION’s career got a big boost when no less than Pres. Duterte dropped his name while delivering a speech at the recent Dept of Justice anniversary affair at PICC. He was lambasting ABS-CBN top honcho Gabby Lopez for accepting payment for his election campaign TV commercials but not airing it.

Instead of Lopez, though, he mentioned Concepcion instead, with matching expletives. To quote: “Ikaw! Gabby Concepcion, mukha kang pera, p— ina ka. Eh totoo naman, sus."

The booboo was quickly circulated on social media and reached Gabby C. in no time at all. Gabby C. took it good naturedly and posted in his social media account: “We all make mistakes. Thank you for watching Ika 6 na Utos, Sir President. #DU30 #ika6nautos #forgive #goodvibes #goodvibesonly #gmadrama.” Another post said: “Sorry na lang, Gabby Concepcion. Collateral damage.”

In the same speech, the president also mentioned Gabby's ex, Sharon Cuneta. He said Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, who's with the opposition, is his friend. "May utang na loob ako sa kanya. Si Inday (his daughter, now mayor of Davao), when she was in grade 5 or 6, sabi ko, anak, anong gusto mong birthday gift? She said, gusto niyang makasama si Sharon Cuneta. So I called Sen. Pangilinan and I said I owe you for doing this for my daughter."

Sharon also posted her comment on social media: "Thank you, Mr. Pres. Duterte, Sir, for what you said on the news about me and my friend Mayor Inday Sara last night. May God bless you, Sir! So kilig!"
