Malacañang on Thursday, September 20 distanced itself from the complaint filed against Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson by the Philippine Federation of the Deaf (PFD) after making fun of the sign language.
Uson, together with her friend Drew Olivar once again were caught on video, as part of her vlog, poking fun of the sign language. The said video has gone viral since then.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque noted that the Palace will respect the decision of the Ombudsman regarding the recent feud of Uson and blogger Olivar with the deaf advocates in the country.
“Let’s wait for the decision of the Ombudsman dahil meron naman nang ganyang complaint. The Ombudsman can order the dismissal of anyone in government because it is both an administrative and a criminal case. Igagalang po ng Palasyo ang proseso,” Roque noted during the press briefing.
He also added, “Pag sinabi ng Ombudsman sibakin, hindi po natin tututulan iyon.”
On Thursday, PFD filed a complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman against Uson and Olivar, stating that the two “stepped over and killed the dignity” of the Filipino sign language.
It can also be recalled that a month ago, Uson and Olivar went viral following their lewd “Ipepedederalismo” dance.
