Drama actress superstar, Ms. Judy Ann Santos, stepped into controversy recently (which is rare) with an infomercial for electric energy company Meralco.
Apparently, Meralco utilized Juday as a spokesperson in a commercial justifying the already controversial Lopez-owned electrical power company's action to pass on its system loss charges on to its customers, who are reportedly already being well "overcharged."
Judy Ann's Mommy Carol and long-time talent manager Alfie Lorenzo are concerned about the people's negative reaction to the commercial, with the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) making a call asking the public to boycott all of Judy Ann's films and television series. This infomercial is such a big deal that even congressmen and the Malacañang Palace are sounding off regarding the subject.
Many view Judy Ann's action as one of bad judgment, allowing herself to become a "tool" for Meralco and hence now taking the brunt of the blows that should have been aimed directly at the electric company.
