Trolls? Atty. Trixie responds to Leni Robredo calling netizens “trolls” for feasting on her because she removed her shoes after debate

Leni Robredo complained on Twitter, which was quickly picked up by News5, that netizens trolled her on social media for removing her shoes after the debate. The VP denied it was a PR stunt because it’s election. She said even if it is not election season, she really remove her shoes when her feet hurt. Besides, this happens in a regular basis, not just to her but to all women who are not used to wearing heels for a long time.

The VP also denied she received advance debate questions from CNN Philippines. Does this mean the critics thought she did great in the debate? Robredo asked.

On that note, Atty. Trixie of the Luminous went on to write a rebuttal versus Robredo’s statement that trolls feasted on her photo walking barefoot by telling Robredo that it was her who put the target on her back by posting on social media saying leadership is showing up even it means standing for three hours in high heels.

Atty. Trixie said she was among those who called out the VP for creating a drama over her high heels. Being called trolls for doing that is unfair. Atty. Trixie asked if Robredo is affected by it? She said Robredo was hurt because they saw through the BS of the barefoot stunt and the heavy-handed way she presented her imagined leadership?

You may continue reading the original FB post of Atty. Trixie of Luminous for context.

Tignan nyo po itong si madame. KAYO po ang nag post na nagsasabing leadership is showing up even it means standing for three hours in high heels. You opened that door. Ikaw ang nagpapansin sa paa nyo.

PINAGPYESTAHAN? eh kayo po ang naghain.

We called you out on the kadramahan over your high heels. And for doing that you are calling us “trolls”? Affected? Nasaktan kayo kasi we saw through the BS and that heavy handed way you presented your imagined leadership?

Furthermore, your attempt at logic FAILS. Just because you had previously taken off your shoes doesn’t negate the suspicion that what you did was a stunt. Because –AGAIN– YOU were the one who presented yourself as a leader based on your footwear, a statement that most conveniently found its way to your own chuwariwaps on social media.
