MANILA, Philippines- Controversial personality and Duterte supporter Mocha Uson has become a trending topic after a certain post she made on Facebook made rounds on social media.
Netizens lambasted the sexy starlet after the latter posted a photo allegedly showing the reactions of Facebook users on the live streaming of President Rodrigo Duterte’s and Vice President Leni Robredo’s inaugural speeches. The controversial photo supposedly shows Duterte’s video getting approval from netizens while Robredo’s earning negative reactions.
While several netizens agreed with Uson’s view, others claimed that Uson is inciting division and hatred through the viral post that has been shared more than 8,000 times as of this writing.
In one of the comments, a certain Jayce Jose urged Uson not to spread any form of hate and just support the elected Vice President.
“I did not vote for Leni pero pwede supportahan din natin? Kung ayaw mo syang manalo, sana tumakbo ka ng VP. If hinde man ikaw nagpost nito, take it down,” Jose wrote.
Meanwhile, Facebook user Mond Saki said in her comment that Facebook is not the basis of the truth and not all voters are active on the social network.
“I totally disagree na ang FB ang batayan ng katotohanan. Let us not forget that not all voters are active FB users. Hindi lahat ay nagpapakapudpud ng daliri para lang magreact sa lahat ng nasa Facebook,” Saki commented.
Uson addressed her critics claiming she didn’t post it to bash Robredo. According to Uson, she simply wanted to reveal the truth which mainstream media fails to show.
“Kailangang lang mailabas ang katotohanan. Dahil sa mainstream media hindi lumalabas ang totoo. Dito lang sa FB nalalaman ang totoong damdamin ng Pilipino at kung pipigilan pa natin paano na malalaman ang katotohanan?”
(I just need to reveal the truth. Mainstream media does not show us the truth. It is only through FB that we will learn the real sentiments of Filipinos. If we will stop it, how will we know the truth?)
