Atty. Ahmed Paglinawan of the Luminous confessed that he used to have high respect for Audie Gemora as senior wise person in their church community and as an artist.
But after tweeting “there goes our taxes” while reposting a meme based from a DM (direct message) that BBM has booked the while island of Amanpulo for his victory party, Atty. Ahmed said that he just respect Gemora now as an artist.
I used to have high respect for sir Audie as a senior wise person in our church community (disclosure) and as an artist. Ngayon, as an artist na lang. Haaay… Life goes on.
Netizens who’ve stumbled upon Atty. Ahmed’s FB post slammed Gemora for peddling fake news and calling sore loser.
One netizen fact-checked Gemora’s allegation BBM will spend the Filipinos hard-earned taxes for his victory party.
Taxes? Hindi pa siya Presidente uy. Si Duterte pa rin Presidente natin baka nakakalimutan mo na.
A second netizen echoed the above-commenter’s sentiment.
Anong taxes pinagsasabi neto? Private citizen po si BBM, hindi pa po umuupo si BBM
A third called Gemora sore loser.
Ogag hindi pa naupo na pangulo si BBM . Wala kang pakialam pera nya ang ginamit nya. Hindi pera ng taumbayan. Hoy mga loser
A fourth asked Gemora to produce proof.
How did u know? Evidence muna Audie Gemura bago putak at post!
A fifth said he though Gemora is a respected celebrity but turned out, he is just another Marites or gossip peddler.
Akala ko pa naman respetadong celebrity itong si Audie Gemora. Marites lang din pala.
A sixth netizen called Gemora’s tweet just another Enchong Dee-level libel case in the making.
Not only is it an unfounded claim, BBM hasn’t been sworn in as President yet. Double Whammy. Another Enchong Dee-level libel case in the making?
And lastly, this netizen commented that what PRRD said about the Philippines turning into a nation of rumor-monger is true.
Tama si Tatay Digs, nagin bansa na ng mga Marites at Marisol
