(SPOT.ph) Activist and performer Mae Paner aka "Juana Change" has shared her two cents by wearing her own version of Kris Aquino’s statement shirt, summing up what many feel about the issue and Kris in general: "How beautiful it is to be enraged when someone expects you to be silent."

Comedian Ai-Ai delas Alas, meanwhile, has come to Judy Ann Santos’ defense after Kris Aquino reportedly unfollowed the latter due to that controversial Instagram post (above) about the President.
In an interview with PEP.ph, she said that Judy Ann did nothing wrong and was simply stating her opinion. She also pointed out that celebrities, like normal people, enjoy freedom of speech. "Demokrasya 'to, so lahat tayo entitled sa mga opinion natin," she said. "Wala naman siyang sinabing masama dun, e. Pinag-compare niya lang. Sabi nga niya, ’Just saying.’ Sinasabi lang niya ’yung opinyon niya."
And to think the Dongyan wedding just reignited the Ai-Ai and Kris friendship. (Whatever will become of that reconciliation gift now?)
By the way, Ogie Alcasid also thinks democracy and the ability to speak your mind is important. "We live in a democracy. Lahat tayo may karapatan na sabihin ang nais nating sabihin." He called the earlier "misunderstanding" involving his wife Regine and Kris a "non-issue" but added, "Siguro sa akin lang, sana he [P-Noy] could have been more gracious with everything that happened in the past and now. I think, mas maiintindihan siya ng mga tao if he was there."
