Sen. Hontivers seek to probe the ‘shoot-to-kill’ remark..
Former action star John Regala trended on Wednesday, July 29, after a Grab delivery boy shared his encounter with him.
According to Carlo Marti Clariza, Regala sought help from him after he felt dizzy and was looking for a nurse.
“Ang kaso di ko po siya maintindihan kase po medyo utal na po magsalita dahil nahihilo po siya kaya humingi siya nang tulong saken at agad naman po akong lumapit sa mga tanod at pulis na para matulungan [sya],” Clariza wrote on Facebook.
The encounter took place in Brgy. 183 Pasay City, Clariza said.
It saddened Clariza to see the former idol in a heart-rending situation. Thus, he decided to stay with Regala and assist him, although he still has a delivery.
Clariza on the same post also thanked the barangay workers who responded to his call for help to aid Regala.
Regala is known for playing villainous roles in many 90’s films like ‘Askal’ in 1997, ‘Bukas bibitayin si itay’ in 1995, ‘Notoryus’ in 1998, and ‘Ligalig’ in 2006.
On Twitter, netizens sympathized with Regala who is suffering from liver cirrhosis.

Ang point here kasi is not John Regala not thinking ahead for his medical care, but the ordinary people who in the first place can barely be afloat in this system. Kung si John Regala may privilege na on these you mentioned, you think it would be the same for labor workers?— 𝐁𝐞𝐫𝐭 𝐬𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐚𝐦𝐚 (@arobisjr) July 29, 2020

Si John regala ang isa sa pinaka magagaling na action star. Action star pero magaling din sa drama. Pag pelikula niya ang nirereplay sa tv maiiyak ka talaga grabe, di kagaya ng ibang action star na emotionless kuno.— ᜎᜒᜎᜒᜆᜓ ᜇᜒᜌᜒᜐ᜔ (@Lilith54610983) July 29, 2020
Sayang talaga. Namali lang siguro ng landas at walang napundar
Yung totoo, hindi ko gusto yung mga gawain ni John Regala in real life, pero on screen... idol na idol ko s'ya. Gustong gusto ko yung pag-arte nya, mapa-bida man sya o kontrabida. Isa s'ya sa mga kontrabida na gustong gusto ko.— ᴶᵃᶜᵏᵦᴶᵎᶩᶩ👩👦 (@imsomaldita) July 29, 2020
