Jay Sonza has once again earned the ire of Robredo supporters after the retired broadcaster tagged VP Leni Robredo’s ways “nagpapakasosyal”?
In a Facebook post, Sonza praised President Duterte for staying humble despite his stature, especially when the president watched the Pacquiao-Matthysse fight from the general admission section of the boxing arena.
Sonza said Duterte did not even pay for the tickets, including his entourage because the Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohammed did.
Sonza could have ended his post here but Sonza thought why not compare Duterte and Robredo and see how social media reacts?
So the retired broadcaster resurrected the issue when Leni Robredo watched an NBA game a few months ago.
Not your ordinary NBA game. A playoff game between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers if my memory serves me right.
According to Sonza, the VP and her daughter bought ringside tickets that cost them hundreds of thousands of pesos.
Sonza concluded the post with this line, “Parehong promdi ang dalawa. Isang nagpapakatotooo at isang nagpapakasosyal.” Rough translation: Both are promdi (hails from the province). One is down to earth and the other one is a socialite wannabe.
Sonza’s post did not go unnoticed from a Leni supporter who wasted no time in defending the VP.
“Kawawa ka naman Jay sonza trying to stay relevant. Gusto mo talaga siguro magka posisyon ano? Hahahahaha. KSP ka masyadong matanda ka e”

“Yan ang ikinumpara mo kay Leni Robredo ng manood si Duterte ng boxing sa KL at si Leni ng manood ng NBA sa Amerika. Sino bang magastos sa dalawa yung dala ang lahat na alipores o yung kasama ang isang anak na nag aral sa Harvard? Sino bang simpleng at toroong sinasabi mo. Hayan ang totoo..”
However, closer inspection tells us, Margie was using an old photo. Check the woman in eyeglass? That’s Wanda Teo, former Tourism Secretary.
Anthony Diy remarked the two are indeed different.
“magkaibang magkaiba talaga! yung anak ni aling leni hindi nasangkot sa shabu. yung anak ni mang digong sangkot”
Meanwhile, Say Sonza’s FB followers shared his observation and expressed it through their comments.
“Yan nga una kong napansin ng makita s tatay digong nasa taas at naka tshirt lang mukang ordinaryong tao… Sabi ko parang hindi presidente… Kung iba pa yan nasa vip seat yan…”
“Nagpapanggap na maralita at namumulot lang daw ng gamit sa america. Pero may pangbili ng ticket sa NBA RINGSIDE!!.. Kami andito na sa america hndi kami makanood. Sobrang plastic talaga ng tao na yan!.. at kapal ng mukha!..”

“Talagang malaki ang pag kakaiba,,,, simple lang si PRRD. Si Robredo kasi medyo may pag ka sosyal…”
