Mike de Leon laments at netizens lambasting him for his stand against ABS-CBN Ball 2018: "People now become more upset by a legitimate question about priorities (like this ball) than the political hellhole we all find ourselves in presently."

Pahayag ni Direk Mike: "Bato-bato sa langit... ang tamaan...

"At salamat sa lahat ng mga nag-comment.

"It should now become even more clear to thinking Filipinos that religion is no longer the opium of the people, it is showbiz.

"People now become more upset by a legitimate question about priorities (like this ball) than the political hellhole we all find ourselves in presently.

"We are truly a damaged people. Kaawa-awang Pilipinas..."
