MANILA, Philippines – After Jake Ejercito called out Georgina Wilson because of the host-model’s tweet about his father, former President Joseph "Erap" Estrada, another Ejercito came to the defense of the newly proclaimed Manila mayor.

In her Twitter account on Friday, Jake’s sister Jerika replied to a tweet by food blogger Erwan Heusaff, who said: “GMA [Gloria Macapagal Arroyo] have you heard? You'll be pardoned and made mayor soon enough. Be patient.”

Heussaff, who is more known as the boyfriend of Anne Curtis, is believed to be in the same circle of friends as Wilson.

Replying to Heussaff’s tweet, Jerika said she is encouraging Wilson and Heussaff “not to abuse their ‘status’ to demean ANYBODY for that matter.”

Heussaff, however, said he was just venting his own opinion. “Expressing my views and frustrations is all. As a contributing citizen I'm tired of getting toyed with by some politicians,” he said.

To which, Jerika replied: “@erwanjheussaff you are entitled to your opinion. It would just be better that next time you do share it to get your facts straight FIRST.”

In response, Heussaff said he already “corrected” himself as he posted this follow up tweet: “Oops she's still a congresswoman pala, reality is even funnier than my previous joke.”

Estrada, who was ousted from power in 2001 after an uprising triggered by allegations of corruption, got 343,993 votes in the Manila polls, edging out incumbent Mayor Alfredo Lim.
