The COVID-19 pandemic may have brought us a lot of stress and headaches, but one recent tweet of Mocha Uson has confused netizens.
On March 18, a post on the Mocha Uson Blog irked the netizens. It was a negative commentary targeting Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto after he appealed to the national government regarding the usage of tricycles in the city. The mayor said that the public health situation will worsen if officials will hinder the use tricycles.
The Mocha Uson Blog labeled Sotto as “pabebe” as he refused to apply the said law.
“Eto yung sinasabi ko eh. Kaya ng ibang lugar bakit eto si Mayor Sotto pabebe? Bukas paguusapan natin ito. Papaliwanag ko kung bakit sablay ang pabebe ni Sotto. Pero ang appeal ko sa DILG bakit parang kayo pa ang nakikiusap sa Mayor? Apply the LAW and be strict parang walang PANDEMIC ah.”
POSTED BY ADMIN BANAT BYEto yung sinasabi ko eh. Kaya ng ibang lugar bakit eto si Mayor Sotto pabebe? Bukas paguusapan…
The post earned mixed reactions from netizens, some agreeing to what the Facebook post has said, while mostly disagreed and expressed their annoyance towards Uson.

Is it possible to SHUT Mocha Uson Blog's page DOWN by simply Reporting her Page as "Hate Speech". Pwede bang subukan natin? 🤔 RETWEET and TRY IT! If you're with me.

Whenever 'Mocha Uson' trends, you know she has done something stupid yet again. And lest you forget, Mocha Uson is being paid by the government to do exactly that.
Has any government official called her out? NO. Because Mocha Uson represents THIS government.

But what surprised netizens was Uson’s tweet, clarifying that her page is handled by different bloggers and admins. She even called the statements of her hating Sotto “fake news”.
FYI, Mocha Uson Blog FB page is now composed of different bloggers and admins. We practice free speech though we differ in opinions on different matters. So, saying that I am against VICO SOTTO is FAKE NEWS since it was posted by another admin. I hope this clears everything. pic.twitter.com/OxkonecAmB

Netizens then began calling her a coward for not taking responsibility for what is being posted on her Facebook page.
Tanga. Pangalan mo nakalagay sa page, kaya you’re responsible for the content in that page. Cambio ka agad, takot ka?
