In a report by PEP.ph, Ramon insisted via Instagram comments that he was not paid for his endorsement. "Walang bayad. Inofferan ako ng iba, hindi ko tinanggap. Puwede ka naman maging cynical sa desisyon ko. Utak at puso 'to," he wrote. "Pareho tayong may malasakit sa bayan. Kung sa tingin mo mas maganda ang option mo, hindi naman kita pipilitin."
He added that he took the time to study Mar's various platforms, saying, "So, ang 'talent fee' ko talaga dito ay pagpapatuloy sa pag-unlad ng bayan, edukasyon at job opportunities, mabisang health care, pamahalaang mapagkakatiwalaan, proteksyon ng human rights at mas maayos na daloy ng trapiko. Alam ko para sa 'yo hindi bagay sa akin magseryoso ng pinagsasabi pero dapat ang halalan hindi ginagawang joke time."
Still, the comedian took time to poke fun at his critics, posting this photo on his Instagram:
Meanwhile, Parokya Ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda, a known supporter of Rodrigo Duterte, posted a reminder on his Twitter account:
