Rude gesture of former President Aquino towards PGMA irks netizens

A video showing former President Aquino snubbing Rep. Gloria Arroyo during an important meeting in Malacanang is making the rounds online.

In a Facebook post shared more than 900 times as of Wednesday evening, the official page of the Philippine Star uploaded the video wherein the infamous snubbing was caught on cam.

In the beginning of the video, President Duterte can be seen shaking hands with Ramos and exchanging pleasantries. Just as President Duterte and Ramos finished exchanging pleasantries, former PGMA extended her hand to Ramos which the latter readily accepted.

At this juncture, former President Aquino arrived, together with Mayor Estrada and walked towards President Duterte to shake his hands. Former President Pnoy then extended his hands to former President Fidel Ramos and pretended not to see PGMA.

The video ended right after Pnoy shook the hands of President Duterte and FVR.

The PGMA snub created an uproar among netizens and criticized former President Aquino for his ungentlemanly act.

Binastos ni Noynoy Aquino si Gloria Arroyo. Nambabastos ng babae, hindi asal ng tunay na lalake.

You’re putting too much color in everything…mas napansin ko pa nga ung hesitation ni pres.fidel to shake pres.arroyo’s hands e…si pinoy naman shook pres.duterte briefly and moved on to his assigned position sa line up nila…i dont see anything wrong with that! Im not pro pinoy nor pro arroyo but please,lets stop putting malice on everything and provoking netizens to react inappropriately…its so unethical…its very sad that people tend to always something against something…cant we just leave it be?
