The award-winning rapper earned a lot of negative comments about his performance and appearance. Among the most blatant comments is Mocha Uson's. She posted a message on Facebook for the rapper that says: "Gloc-9, please don't get me wrong. Kaibigan po kita at ang iyong manager. Mahal at ini-idolo po namin kayo ng aking grupo. Pero sa pagkakataon na ito ang aking puso ay kumirot at nalungkot sa balitang ito. Para mo na ring ibinenta ang ating bayan sa mga politikong alam naman nating hindi karapat dapat mahalal dahil sa matinding corruption. Sana lang ay isinaalang alang mo ang kapakanan ng mga taong naghahangad ng tunay na pagbabago. Nakilala ka bilang isang rapper na isinusulong ang nasyonalismo. Ano ang nangyari sayo? Paano mo nasikmura ito?"

Gloc-9's management issued a statement to Rappler that readsLike many artists, Gloc-9 has been performing in various sorties since February of this year. During campaign season, it is normal for artists and celebrities to get gigs that are connected to or have something to do with the coming elections. In the past month alone, Gloc-9 has performed in sorties for local candidates regardless of party affiliations in Laguna, Bocaue, and Cavite. That it is this Makati gig that has gotten mileage is no surprise, and that has more to do with the media than with Gloc-9.

To Gloc-9 management this was just a regular sortie gig for a local candidate, no different from the sorties before it, and the sorties that will come after it.

Although his management advised him not to give out comments anymore, he posted a very strong statement believed to be addressed to all his bashers with regard the issue.

Below is a screen shot of Gloc-9's statement he posted on his Facebook page:

Every artist has their own intention whenever they perform in a politically related event. It might be a show of support, or just merely a part of their work which they need to support their families and follow their passion. Do you think Gloc-9 made the right move in performing at this event?
