Netizens have mentioned that the taekwondo student’s family is “well-connected” to the Cojuancos, thus makes it hard to punish the boy.
the kid being expelled is quite close to being impossible, i read that his family has close ties to peping cojuangco and we all know that admu’s administration loves riding the bourgeoisie’s dicks https://t.co/VEg72usnp1
