Angel Locsin is no longer playing the Pinay superheroine Darna, but many netizens are referring to her again as Darna.
This is because of the way she voices out her opinions and gives help to others.
In particular, on March 25, Angel showed her disgust of Senator Koko Pimentel.
Pimentel is in hot water for disregarding quarantine protocols even when he was clearly already considered a Person Under Investigation (PUI) for COVID-19.
The government official went inside Makati Medical Center on March 24 with his wife who was scheduled to give birth by cesarian operation.
On March 25, Pimentel confirmed that he was COVID-19 positive.
Using her Twitter account, Angel admitted that she now regrets campaigning for Pimentel in the 2007 senatorial elections.
When a netizen tagged Angel in a campaign photo with Pimentel, Angel replied, "Eww"
Angel then apologized: "Yes. Super. Mortal sin. Patawarin nyo po ako bilang ex husband po sya ng pinsan ko."
Angel was praised by Twitter users for apologizing to the public for endorsing Pimentel in the 2007 elections.
Here are some reactions of netizens who still refer to Angel as their Darna:
One netizen wrote, "Angel Locsin swallowing her pride just as easily as she swallowed her Darna stone. I stan a true kween!"
Still related to Angel's apology, another Twitter user said that Darna is "forgiven."
A netizen described Angel's tweets as "Darna energy."
This netizen considers her "Eww" as a quotable quote.
A netizen quipped that Darna might not be in the mood today.
But other netizens believe that Angel's "Eww" tweet is a Darna mood by itself!
Other Twitter users noticed how Angel had tagged lifestyle blogger Cat Arambulo in a news item about Pimentel not following quarantine protocols.
Angel wrote: "Calling @catarambulo_com [three red hearts] where are youuuu?[hugging emoji]
Cat trended on social media in the first week of the community quarantine for her viral video, where she is heard calling people in the streets "m*therf*ckers" for going outside their homes.
Because of this, netizens slammed Cat for her insensitivity to the struggles of daily-wage workers.
A Twitter user retweeted Angel's post and wrote, "Darna throwing shade is just so funny to look at."
One netizen commented, "Di na kelangan ng bato ni Darna dahil si Angel palang todong MALAKAS NA!"
Other netizens acknowledged Angel's relief efforts to help frontliners and health workers in the midst of COVID-19.
A netizen tweeted Angel: "Aminin mo na @143redangel. Siguro nung last time na sinubo mo yung bato nginata mo no? Parang may naiwan kasi sayo kasi hanggang ngayon ikaw pa rin ang Darna namin eeeh. [red heart emoji]"
Because of these tweets, Darna became a trending topic on Twitter, along with Angel Locsin.
