Jake Ejercito maintains his stance against the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos has nothing to do with his friendship with Sandro Marcos.
His Instagram post showing a snapshot of the 1986 EDSA Revolution has this caption: “Body may be buried, but not the truth.”
A netizen has reacted, noting that it’s “kinda off” for Jake to show his disapproval of the Marcos burial given his friendship with Sandro.
The netizen's comment reads: “Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion and I respect that. But it’s just that seeing you post this while hanging out once in a while with Sandro Marcos in London is kinda off.”
To which Jake has responded, “Real friendships go beyond politics.”
Last May, Jake had defended Sandro against the latter’s bashers in social media.
Jake is the son of former president and Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada, while Sandro is the son of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos.
MARCOS-ESTRADA CONNECTION. It can be recalled that Mayor Estrada had endorsed Senator Marcos for the vice-presidency during the 2016 elections.
Estrada served as mayor of San Juan City for 17 years, from 1969 to 1986 during the administration of Ferdinand Marcos.
It was during that time Estrada founded the Metro Manila Film Festival (originally known as Metropolitan Film Festival), which was made possible through Presidential Proclamation No. 1459.
