‘Wag itokhang! Lacierda defends Jollibee amid destab plot links
Aquino-era presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda has come to Jollibee’s defense after it was linked by former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte to a plan to oust his father.
Lacierda tweeted on Saturday that Jollibee should not be the target of “Tokhang,” the administration’s anti-drug campaign which has become synonymous to bloodshed.
“Huwag i-tokhang ang pambansang bubuyog!” he said.
Lacierda accompanied his tweet with a text graphic which read: “I stand by Jollibee. Sabado pati na rin linggo.”

Jollibee was among the corporations named by Duterte in a Facebook post which are supposedly working to oust his father, President Rodrigo Duterte.
The post, however, has since been deleted.
