Actress Angelica Panganiban was receiving praise on social media after her advice to her colleagues in the showbiz industry recirculated on social media.
The said statement of Angelica was recorded during her acceptance speech after receiving an award on November 27, 2022.
She urged her colleagues to be kind to all production staff, crew, and utility because they might become their ‘boss’ someday.
“Kailangan niyong maging mabait sa lahat ng katrabaho niyo, sa lahat ng staff, ng crew, ng utility. Lahat ng yun magiging boss niyo one day. Maniwala kayo sa akin… Maging mabait kayo sa lahat.” Angelica said.
“Huwag kayong puchu-puchung mga artista, huwag kayong mga charot-charot. Ayusin nyo from the beginning at gamitin nyo ang talent nyo,” she added.
The statement Angelica recirculated on social media amid the issue being faced by Alex Gonzaga after what she did to a waiter during her birthday party.
Some netizens even tagged Alex to watch the speech of Angelica.

Because of the issue, the welfare of the restaurant crews and how people should treat them became a discussion on social media.
Alex already apologized, but netizens questioned why the waiter still wrote a letter with his signature on it to confirm that he’s already accepting the apology from the actress.
