It has been days since the word war between Communications Assistant Sec. Mocha Uson and Queen of all Media Kris Aquino ensued.
The issue stemmed from Uson’s comparison of President Rodrigo Duterte’s “no malice” kiss to a married Filipina during his three day visit to South Korea, to that of a clip showing two women kissing the late Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. on the cheek, moments before he was assassinated at the tarmac of the Manila International Airport in 1983.
This earned the ire of Aquino, who said that she needed to defend her parents’ legacy. President Duterte on his part confirmed that he had asked Special Assistant to the President Christopher ‘Bong’ Go to apologized on his behalf to Aquino for the said incident.
However, the president said that he cannot compel Uson to apologize because the latter took out the “freedom of Speech” card.
The fire between the two is starting to fizzle, but netizens including people from showbiz continue to share their two cents’ worth on the topic.
Sexy actress Ethel Booba, known for her witty-bashful remarks on social media shared her answer when asked by a follower on how she “loves her mocha?” Booba’s reply, “I always add sugar and creamer but never ad hominem. Charot!”
Erich Gonzales, Kim Chiu, Dingdong Dantes and wife Marian Rivera are just some of showbiz royalties who expressed their support to Aquino.
Jake Ejercito, son of former president and now Manila mayor Joseph Estrada blatantly referred to Mocha as “garbage” in his latest social media post.
DJ Mo Twister, who admits to not liking Aquino, said that the mom of two has his support on this one.
Meanwhile, Kris already retracted her one on one challenge with Uson, upon realizing that they are not on the same level. “I don’t wanna give her anymore of my fame.”
