#ProtectVico became a trending hashtag on Twitter after Mayor Vico Sotto came under fire from key personalities for allowing tricycles to operate in Pasig City. Vico partially lifted the transportation ban to make commuting easier for frontliners exempted from the lockdown.

One of the critics is Mocha Uson, who called Vico’s initiative as ‘pabebe’ in a post on Mocha Uson Blog.

‘Eto yung sinasabi ko eh. Kaya ng ibang lugar bakit eto si Mayor Sotto pabebe?’, reads the statement by a certain ‘Admin Banat’.

POSTED BY ADMIN BANAT BYEto yung sinasabi ko eh. Kaya ng ibang lugar bakit eto si Mayor Sotto pabebe? Bukas paguusapan…

The post garnered enormous backlash from political critics and celebrities, including Twitter fave Ethel Booba who quipped: ‘Okay na sa pabebe kesa sa pabobo. Social media distancing talaga kailangan nila. Charot!’

 

But in a confusing turn of events, it seems that not everything shared on Mocha Uson Blog reflects the sentiments of Mocha Uson – despite it literally being named after her. Uson disputes the claim that she is against Vico Sotto, clarifying that the page is composed of multiple admins, each allowed to practice ‘free speech’.

‘So, saying that I am against VICO SOTTO is FAKE NEWS since it was posted by another admin. I hope this clears everything’, said Uson, who has been consistently called out by various publications for spreading misinformation.

 

What is unclear, however, is if Mocha Uson will consider changing the name of her platform to Mocha Uson & Friends Blog to avoid confusion in the future.
