Rodrigo Duterte’s fame has gone beyond borders-with Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds calling out to the public to vote for him in the coming presidential elections.
During an exclusive interview with InqPOP! of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the “Deadpool” star shared some of his insights about his Filipino fans, and he parted with the words, “Vote for Duterte!”
Reynolds did not elaborate much on his statement, but he said that “he (referring to Duterte) has his ‘methods,’” and that he likes those.
This interview segment has become quite a shock to Filipinos all over the world-a good thing of course to those who are supporting Duterte, and not-so-good for those who are not one with the controversial candidate.
Duterte currently ranks third in the latest Pulse Asia survey on presidential candidates, tied with Mar Roxas. Grace Poe has returned to the top spot, while Vice President Jejomar Binay landed second during the 24-28 January survey polls.
The no-nonsense mayor, known for his strict disciplinary measures in Davao City, recently proclaimed his candidacy in the province of Pampanga, together with his running mate Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano. He is also the incumbent chair of the PDP-Laban party.
What are your thoughts on this? Is Reynolds (in his Deadpool persona) serious about his endorsement?
