While Risa Hontiveros can breathe easily now after meme attributed to her as fake, another meme should give the senator some sleepless nights.
Below is the official statement of Senator Hontiveros below, dismissing the meme as fake news.
[A] FAKE NEWS ALERT. While the siege in Marawi is ongoing, some elements still choose to manufacture fake news and attribute malicious quotes to those who oppose the Martial Law in Mindanao.
The Maute group’s siege in Marawi is an act of terrorism. Senator Risa Hontiveros condemns all acts of terror and is fervent in pursuing peace.
Hindi natutulungan ng fake news ang ating mga kababayan ngayon. Huwag po tayong ma-fall sa mga fake news: paaasahin lang tayo, hindi naman pala totoo. #fakezone
If Hontiveros thinks that she can now sleep soundly at night after proving her critics wrong, this time, she was caught really saying something stupid on camera.
In the ANC interview, Hontiveros said that terrorists can be apprehended immediately if caught in the act.
The statement made by the lady senator has been the subject of ridicule from social media bloggers like Edwin Jamora and netizens online.
On Facebook, Jamora wrote: Today’s lesson in Counter-Terrorism 101 from our Brilliant Senator Hontivirus.
“Ang mga terrorista ay pwede namang hulihin agad pag caught in the act.”
Here’s how the netizens react online.
Enrique Mirafuentes Matociños wrote: “A woman is beautiful until she open her mouth.”
BabyGerunette Dela Cruz Lacson sadi: “Talaga ba? Pwede hulihin??? Ehdi go ! Pumunta ka dun at sumama sa paghuli ! Tignan lang natin kung di ka matodas ! No wonder ilang beses ka tumakbo ng pagka senadora at natalo.. you should be thankful sa smartmatic ! And LP .. ! PS: for Hontiveros”
Rose Marie Natoza Santos remarked: “Because I don’t want to endanger my health and sanity, I just ignore, ignore and ignore her, Leni, de Lima, Leah, Patag, et al. Not worth my time and attention.”
Eileen Arboleda-Orbeta said: “RH, ang terorista pagkakita pa lang sa ‘yo na bagong mukha para sa kanila, hindi taga Mindanao at hindi muslim, uunahan ka na… nakakagalit ka na… ang tingin mo ba sa kanila ordinaryong kriminal lang?… sila ay pumapatay ng walang awa at ginagawang katawatawa ang pag pugot ng ulo… naisip mo ba yun?”
