“Hindi e. Hindi ako imbitado,” Robredo told reporters when asked if she will watch Monday’s coronation night at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Robredo’s whining to reporters about not getting an invitation to the Miss Universe coronation night may seem trivial to many people, but ABS-CBN deemed it newsworthy that it ran a story anchored on the vice president’s short statement.
Blogger Sass Rogando Sasot took to Facebook feigning concern for Robredo’s bungling PR team and wrote:
Sino ba talagang PR ni Leni? Nakakaloka. Para lang masakyan ang Miss Universe issue? Wala na atang upuan kaya hindi na-invite si Leni.
Robredo’s whining about almost everything like hijacking the Miss Universe event for free publicity just give her critics in the social media another reason to whack her online.
Netizen Johnel Nazareno slammed Robredo for being an attention seeker.
Netizen Lilibeth Espinosa Alaan dismissed Robredo’s whining as a paawa effect to get public sympathy.
Netizen Elmer Sale saw this as a political move and called it the Fernando Poe Jr. effect.
Netizen Aileen Turzar Burgos advised Robredo to watch the event on TV or on FB Live.
Netizen Don Dhon Alban teased Robredo to sell porridge outside SMX and get news updates from fellow spectators.
Netizen Ma Rakel AC Mondonedo told Robredo that the event is a beauty pageant hence the need to get ticket, not an invitation since it is not a birthday party.
Netizen Mizuno Nura joked that Robredo’s is not gracing the event because she is busy working for her portfolio in a budding modeling career.
