Ban this from our theaters. if you support this abomination, it only means the colonizers still won over us even today, after 500 years. it's like making a fun, family-friendly 3d-animated movie about columbus taking over and erasing american indians from their homeland or the whites selling africans as slaves. "grabbed the helm of history and changed its course forever"??? by oppressing, murdering, raping my race? they're profiting from the defeat of our ancestors and trivializing the shame that our race had to go through for centuries. i can't believe how there are still filipinos who are excited about this. indeed, our textbooks did not educate us enough to antagonize the enemy. instead, we support them. i am utterly heartbroken. the creators of this show should have known better. if no one's starting a petition, i will.
in behalf of my fellow men who are deeply blinded by colonial mentality, i apologize to rajah humabon, rajah tupas, jose rizal, francisco dagohoy, tamblot, antonio luna, andres bonifacio, bienvenido santos, and nvm gonzales. im so sorry. 😭 sirs, your descendants failed you. it seems your lives and works were wasted 💔💔
