Karen Davila Gets Flak From Netizens For Demanding Paolo Duterte Attend the Senate Hearing

It’s not the first time for ABS-CBN and DZMM news anchor Karen Davila to receive a backlash from netizens for statements she made on her news and commentaries on radio and TV. As a matter of fact, in 2016 Davila was forced to set her Instagram account on private after being bashed by netizens on different social media sites “for being a biased host.”  

It’s also not the first time that she criticized a member of the Duterte family. The latest of which was on her DZMM news commentary where she criticized Presidential son and Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo “Pulong” Duterte for not coming to the senate hearing despite his name being mentioned, most especially by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.  

“Bakit kung sino yung mga ordinaryong indibidwal, kailangang sumipot sa Senado.. Bakit po kayo di pwede?,” Davila said. She also cited that as an elected official and member of the Duterte family, Pulong must attend the senate hearing and clarify his name instead of letting senators do it for him.

This is in obvious reference to Senate Blue ribbon Committee chairman Richard Gordon, whose name she eventually mentioned in her show, and who also very recently clashed with Trillanes after the latter asserted that Both Pulong and his brother-in-law Mans Carpio be summoned to the hearing after  one so-called witness dragged their names into the Bureau of Customs smuggling scandals.

“Kahit po public official o ordinaryong tao, pantay pantay kami, hindi po porket miyembro ng first family eh hindi niyo ipapatawag, yan po ang opinyon ng isang tax payer na tulad ko, sana po patas po. Ipatawag niyo lahat ng binabangit under oath sa senado. Walang takot yan,” Davila added, addressing the senate.
