Batangas is now in the state of calamity because of the Taal Volcano eruption.

When Vice President Leni Robredo offered help to the victims by bringing relief goods, she earned the criticism of Deputy Executive Director Mocha Uson of the Overseas Worker Welfare Administration which she posted on her Facebook page “MOCHA USON BLOG.”

In her post, Mocha stated that a netizen claimed that the Vice President was only giving 5 pieces of pandesal and one bottle of water to the victims. Mocha said, “Hindi nakapagtataka na galit na ang mga tao sa mga istilong bulok na ganito. Hindi din kasi ito ang unang pagkakataong inuna ni Leni ang pagpapa photo ops kaysa sa pagtulong sa mga biktima ng trahedya.”

VP Robredo called out Uson during an interview in Caloocan City for spreading fake news about her office’s donation to the victims of Taal Volcano eruption. She was attending a forum on community-based drug rehabilitation centers where she was interviewed.

“While our people are suffering from an unfortunate tragedy, this bearer of fake news (Uson) continues to receive a salary out of taxpayers’ money. Parang sobrang insulto sa taumbayan na tayo iyong nagpapasuweldo ng isang taong ginawang trabaho iyong pagpapakalat ng fake news,” she said.

“Fake News [ang sinasabi ni Uson]! Pati ba naman trahedya, gagamitin pa para magsinungaling. Let’s all help put a stop to the proliferation of lies,” she added.

Some netizens agreed with the Vice President and wish Uson would resign from her government position since she is notorious for spreading fake news.

Some netizens showed some screenshot photos proving that Mocha was spreading fake news. The real content of VP Leni’s donation was 1.5 kilos of rice, 7 assorted canned goods and 2 packs of noodles. Rappler also said that the VP Robredo also donated 1,000 pieces face masks.
