Despite assurance from the Philippine government that the controversial anti-terror bill won't suppress free speech, several Filipino celebrities and influencers have spoken up against it - including award-winning actor Darren Criss.

Darren, who became the first Filipino-American to win a Golden Globe for his performance in American Crime Story, said in a tweet that with the proposed anti-terrorism bill, "injustice continues to thrive off the slippery rhetoric of peace maintenance... aka preying on the fears of the voting majority..." He also shared a tweet with information on the proposed measure.

In another tweet, he said that although the term "anti-terrorism" may sound "promising," it also "maximizes criminality for ANYONE who shows any kind of civil opposition- without a warrant, not to mention enforces totalitarian surveillance to uphold said insanity. I'd be in jail by now."

The House of Representatives has approved the new anti-terrorism legislation, previously certified as urgent by President Rodrigo Duterte.
