THE sons of the ailing former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada traded barbs on social media following the confinement of the actor turned politician, who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
In a social media post, former senator JV Ejercito didn’t mention any name but seemed to be referring to his half-brother former senator Jinggoy Estrada.
“Because of our complicated family structure, I will not be issuing any medical bulletins or any info from the hospital regarding my father. One sibling called me because I was interviewed earlier and conversation didn’t turn out well. Sorry guys. It’s complicated,” reads his post.
JV said that he would no longer be issuing any statement on the former President’s latest medical bulletin after he was berated by one of the Estrada siblings.
Jinggoy issued a rebuttal on the same platform.
“Now is NOT the time for our differences. This is not about you, not about me, nor about our siblings. This is about our father. Let us continue to pray and support him. Magpasalamat tayo sa Poong Maykapal na buhay ang ating ama, at ipagdasal natin ang mabilis niyang paggaling.”
After Jinggoy’s post, JV posted anew, which reads: “One of the saddest days of my life,” a tweet that spontaneously spread like wildfire, and created quite a stir on the older Estrada’s condition.
“Let me clarify, a lot were confused with my tweets. I am mourning because of the loss of my Doggie/Bestfriend Gunn. My father is in stable condition in the hospital. Timing that my dog died this morning,” he clarified in a follow-up post.
