Social media uproar over Willie Revillame claim on Tado Jimenez remains!

An uproar erupted amongst the friends of deceased comedian and activist Tado Jimenez after reports came out that star game show host Willie Revillame “took care” of moving his remains from the scene of the accident back to Manila. According to an Interaksyon report singer Dong Abay and radio personality Gang Badoy-Capati took to Facebook and Twitter to denounce Revillame and PhilStar columnist Ricky Lo who wrote the report…

Capati fired off a series of tweets that belied the report and clarified that Tado was fetched by a party of family and friends, including herself and members of the activist groups Rock Ed Philippines and Dakila.

“Willie Revillame, why would you take that truth away from Tado’s friends?” she lamented in one post.

Writer Candice Lopez Quimpo chimed in in a tweet seemingly directed to Revillame and Lo as well saying “Multuhin ka sana, sinungaling”. Translated: “I hope you are haunted by [an unnamed person’s] ghost.” Quimpo also tweeted that “Willie Revillame is a liar. This story is false,” providing a link to Lo’s article in the same tweet.

Lo’s PhilStar report where this was apparently first revealed disclosed thus…

When Willie learned about the accident, he instructed his trusted man, Jay Montelibano, to take care of everything — bring Tado’s body from the Mountain Province for the wake at the Paket Santiago Funeral Homes (on V. Gomez, San Roque in Marikina, from Sunday night to tomorrow when Tado’s remains are cremated and at the Marikina Loyola Memorial Park). Willie is shouldering all the expenses.

However, on second reading, one will note that this was a statement on Revillame’s intent to take care of Jimenez’s body but is silent on whether or not the intent was actually carried out.

Interaksyon further observed that “Abay deleted the [a Facebook] post [where he requested that people bop Revillame over the head] after just over an hour.” The post had attracted 168 “Likes” and 34 comments at the time Interaksyon cited it.

Capati, for her part, in a subsequent tweet announced she had deleted all her tweets on the matter. “I deleted everything regarding that. No space deserved. Done.”

A case of knee-jerk over-reaction? Seems like it.

Tado Jimenez rose to fame posthumously after the bus he was riding up to the Mountain Province crashed. He was a regular guest in Willie Revillame’s now defunct game show Wowowee and was reportedly promised a co-hosting job in Revillame’s next show.

Why did they delete their posts? It was NOT an over reaction. Mukhang wala naman silang natanggap na information na nais tumulong ni Willie kaya sila nag-react ng ganyan. At bakit sa media agad nagbigay ng statement si Willie at hindi sa pamilya ni Tado? Pang-uuto ang ginagawa ni Willie sa masa ilang taon na. Para mag mukha siyang mabait. Whether intention niya or nagawa nga niya dapat sabihin lang niya ang totoo.

Ricky Lo doesn’t know anything about the artist’s circle or anything about the arts community. For him Tado is a TV personality and he would rather get the side of a dubious TV personalty like Willie to have a story. This shows how stupid and lazy Showbiz writers are.

Tama. Ricky Lo is to blame here. Mukhang space filler lang yung article kay Tado. Space filler na nga lang mali ma.

Publicity hungry asshole. Para lang bumango ang pangalan kung anu ano ang sasabihin sa masa. Basa na kasi ang papel sa TV.

“Tado Jimenez rose to fame posthumously after the bus he was riding up to the Mountain Province crashed.”

@ MGE taxi

You are totally missing the point, idiot. Whoever uses a name of taxi company as his handle is not only stupid but a coward.

Dude why the gripe? Kung hindi sikat si Tado kay Benigno e ano naman? Kailangan mo nang mabutthurt agad? Tsaka pinagpiyestahan lang sya ng media dahil namatay sya di ba?

Showbiz and journalism was never intended to be a good mix. No wonder I’ve pretty much ran out of newspapers to read these days. Tado, while I did not personally knew the guy had a pretty interesting stint back then on Strangebrew but after that I didn’t really see him that much since I pretty much stopped watching TV due to a lot of dumb programming that came after that. I might agree that in showbiz, when you’re not in the so-called A-list while you still live nobody would give a crap about you. But when you die especially in… Read more »
