Sass Sasot chides Boyet de Leon’s beauty queen daughter following negative remarks on Mocha’s appointment

In a series of tweets, Bb. Pilipinas International winner Mariel de Leon aired her gripes against the appointment of Mocha Uson to a high government post.

When the news broke out that Mocha Uson was appointed as PCOO Asec, the news quickly trended on Twitter.

Duterte’s critics, including celebrities took to Twitter and Facebook criticizing the appointment.

One of those celebrities who slammed Mocha’s appointment is Mariel de Leon, daughter of Boyet de Leon and Sandy Andolong and tweeted this first salvo on Twitter:

“I love my country so it breaks my heart to know someone like her got a position in the govt.”

And this to drive home her point…

“There are so many other unbiased, educated, and respected (and respectful) people who deserve her place.”

Mariel took a jab at Mocha Uson in the tweet below.

Mariel called Mocha “biased and disrespectful”.

Mariel did not stop posting tweets defending herself from criticisms but that’s beside the point.

Social Media blogger Sass Rogando Sasot, a staunch Duterte defender, took to Facebook to put Mariel de Leon in her proper place.

Check out her post below.

Ms Mariel de Leon:

1. Loyalty is important in an appointed position. These appointees, like Mocha, serve at the pleasure of the president. As such, they should have a particular bias — and that is, they must support the reforms and policies of the administration.

Unlike you who lived a pampered life, Mocha was exposed to the cruelties of this world at an early age. Her father was a judge who handled cases involving big criminal syndicates: he got assasinated. I believe you were almost at the same age when that happened. I mean, while Mocha at your age had to face that kind of life, your greatest challenge in life is to win a crown for a beauty contest. Classic case of depth of life experience vs vapidness.

2. Mocha got her diploma before you got yours. FYI, she finished a medical degree and got into one of the top med schools in the PH. I believe your degree is related to cooking?

3. What is respected and respectful during this highly polarized moment in our political history is highly questionable. I believe the people who Mocha helped through her blog would disagree with you.

I was with Mocha in the second week of February. The vendors outside the bar where her group performs love her. They immediately ran to her and embraced her upon seeing her, like a long lost sister.

Mocha can be very blunt in her FB especially if she feels passionate about the issue.

I’m not really sure if you know what the job of being a PCOO Asec on Social Media entails. Well, Bb Pilipinas-International, it fundamentally entails understanding and having an actual experience in community engagement online. Now tell us, how is Mocha not qualified to do the job? But before that: What made you qualified to gauge someone’s qualification in that field?

Your thoughts, please!
