After saying her piece on the morality issue, Mocha shifted her attention to another hot topic during election season—celebrity endorsements.

Mocha expressed her disgust over celebrities seeking a paycheck in exchange for an an endorsement in a brief but blatant Facebook status:

Sa mga artistang nag-endorso ng dahil sa pera, daig nyo pa ang PUTA na nagbenta ng katawan pagkat ang inyong ibinenta ay ang inyong bayan!

Posted by MOCHA USON BLOG on Thursday, 10 December 2015

Several netizens commented on the status and questioned the singer-performer’s integrity on the matter.

This led Mocha into a contrustive argument of her own and chose to further explain herself in a lengthy Facebook post the following day.

She started: “It seems that not everyone fully understood my point when I posted this on FB, "Sa mga artistang nag-endorso ng dahil sa pera, daig nyo pa ang PUTA na nagbenta ng katawan pagkat ang inyong ibinenta ay ang inyong bayan!"

“Allow me to explain.”

She laid down four points:

“FIRST OF ALL, I am NOT saying that if you are supporting another candidate eh isa ka ng "PUTA” ("PUTA" means prostitute in Spanish).

“A PROSTITUTE is a person considered as having COMPROMISED PRINCIPLES for PERSONAL GAIN. That’s why I said- “daig nyo pa ang PUTA” ang taong nage-endorse ng kandidato dahil sa PERA at hindi dahil sa kanyang conviction o paniniwala.

“I respect people who want other candidates because they believe in them. BUT I DESPISE those celebrities who endorse candidates in exchange for MONEY! Asan ang pagmamahal mo sa bansa?

“You are not just promoting a “product”. You are influencing the people to bet their lives on someone who is NOT capable of providing the leadership our country needs.

“Ang katotohanan ay ini-endorso mo lng ito dahil sa malaking halaga ng pera na iyong natanggap. Kaya daig mo pa ang isang PUTA dahil bayan ang iyong ibinenta.”

Mocha then clarified that political endorsements are exactly part of a celebrity′s job description.

“SECOND, sabi ng ibang tao eh "TRABAHO" lang naman daw ng mga artista yun. So, kung ang magnanakaw sabihin nila na ang trabaho nila ay magnakaw ay ok lng ba yon?

“Di ba hindi? Bakit? Kasi nakaka-perwisyo at nakaka-agrabyado sila ng ibang tao.

“Ganun din ang mga artistang NAGBEBENTA ng kanilang endorsement. Nakakaperwisyo kayo sa utak ng mga PILIPINO.”

She also wanted to redirect people to the issue at hand, rather than dismissing her post because of her work as a sexy entertainer.

“THIRD, sabi ng iba wala daw akong karapatan magsalita dahil ako ay isang sexy entertainer.

“Yan naman ang mga reply ng mga taong immature at hindi nagi-isip. Bakit? The issue here is NOT my personality but the celebrities SELLING THEIR PRINCIPLES.

“And never akong nag malinis.

“Yes I am a sex blogger and a sexy performer but I NEVER sold my body in exchange for money.

“The MOCHA GIRLS are professional entertainers and our real followers can testify to this.”

On that point, she concluded:

“LASTLY, bakit daw ako at ang MOCHA GIRLS ay masyadong nakikialam sa POLITICS at masyado daw die-hard DUTERTE supporter?

“I will give you one enough reason- SAWANG SAWA NA KAMI SA MGA POLITIKONG PLASTIK!!! KAYO BA HINDI PA SAWA?

“O karamihan sa atin ay sanay nang NAGBIBINGI BINGIHAN at NAGBUBULAG BULAGAN?

“Hindi pa ba tyo sawa sa 18yrs na mga pulitikong puro pangako? Si DUTERTE ay 70 yrs. old na at maaring eto na ang huling pagkakataon natin na mabigyan sya ng laya na makapagsilbi sa BUONG BANSA.

“Sabi nila siguradong makikinabang daw kami kapag nanalo si DUTERTE. Isang malaking OO!

“Hindi lang kami, kundi lahat tayo ay makikinabang dahil magiging maayos at mapayapa ang ating bayan. Mababawasan ang krimen at makukulong ang mga magnanakaw na pulitiko!
