Jim Paredes: ‘Taong bundok’ comment vs. Mindanaoans a complete lie: My mom is from Mindanao!

Singer-songwriter Jim Paredes has denied calling Mindanaoans “taong bundok” in a Facebook comment that has become viral online.

In a Facebook post Monday (May 29), Paredes called the comment attributed to him as a “complete lie.”

“I categorically deny that I called Mindanaoans ‘Taong Bundok’. My Mother is from Mindanao. I have friends from there and I have been to Mindanao countless times. I have even performed in Marawi city. I have spent happy times all over the island,” he said.

“The statement posted on a fake account are as untrue as saying the PHL constitution has more than 200 articles,” Paredes added.

The comment attributed to Paredes had him accusing Mindanaoans of only looking for themselves by favoring the declaration of martial law.
