Monique, daughter of former Makati vice mayor Johnny Wilson, said that while her father was "a Marcos man," and while her privileged upbringing protected her from experiencing the horrors of Martial Law, she eventually took her own stand, leading to a rift between her and her father for many years. In the video, Monique was asked about artists being separated from politics. The question referenced comments made by Monique's friend and fellow theater artist Lea Salonga in , where Lea was called a Marcos apologist for saying that the Marcoses "have always been kind to me and my family.
