The controversial movie directed by Darryl Yap has garnered the attention of netizens, both in support and opposition to the film.
One of the most trending issues concerns Ella Cruz, who plays Irene Marcos.
The actress made a controversial statement in an interview saying, “history is like chismis (gossip).”
“It is filtered and dagdag na rin, so, hindi natin alam what is the real history. Andoon na iyong idea, pero may mga bias talaga. As long as we’re here alive at may kanya-kanyang opinion, I respect everyone’s opinion,” she said.
(It is filtered with added inputs, so we don’t know what real history is. The idea is there, but there are biases. As long as we’re here alive and we have our own opinions, I respect everyone’s opinion.)
Cruz faced countless backlash from academics and historians, including De La Salle University history professor Xiao Chua.
“History is evidence-based. That’s why hindi puwedeng chismis. Kapag na-verify na iyong chismis, hindi na siya chismis. Ganoon po iyon,” he said.
(It can’t be gossip. If a gossip is verified, it is no longer gossip. That’s how it works.)
