New Tawag ng Tanghalan winner Rigel Micolob is caught in a controversy after online articles unearthed her Facebook post showing her support for a petition against the same network that hosted the competition she won in.
Tawag ng Tanghalan is a Kapamilya singing competition on Show.
The Change.org petition was to prevent ABS-CBN from hosting the presidential debate this month of April on the grounds of being bias.
She shared that post on February 23, 2016 with words that went “RIGEL MICOLOB JUST SIGNED THIS PETITION ON CHANGE.ORG”.
How did the Davaoeño singer reacted to this?
As of this writing, she is silent and her last status on Facebook was a thank you for the winning.
However, the post that showed her support for the petition was already deleted.
Netizens’ reactions were mixed, with some dissing the singer for being a hypocrite and others dismissing the issue.
