Joey de Leon calls out people taking on ice bucket challenge without the "ALS" part

The ice bucket challenge has taken on a life of its own over the past month, with celebrities trying to outdo the last video tagged as the "greatest ice bucket challenge ever!!!!" It’s for a good cause and it has definitely raised awareness for a disease that wasn’t even in most people’s vocabulary a few weeks ago.
However, as with all things, it has reached a point where some of the good intentions behind it has been watered down. On Monday (August 25), Joey de Leon posted a photo on his Instagram account where he held a sign that said, "Don’t nominate if you don’t donate."
De Leon’s call is a response to a few videos surfacing where people are simply getting doused with water, with no mention of the cause. A report by GMA News quoted him saying, "Maraming epal na gaya-gaya sa Ice Bucket Challenge. Kaso, puro lang NOMINATE...wala namang DONATE! Tumigil nga kayo!"
