DJ Mo Twister has seemingly thrown shade on Sen. Tito Sotto.
Sotto had tweeted about the critics of the Anti-Terror Bill, calling them “epal”, as he believes that they are not knowledgable enough about what they are saying.
The senator also emphasized that activism is not terrorism as many people claim that the bill is a violation of freedom of expression.
Daming nakiki- Epal, Mali naman ang Alam!

Activism daw is not terrorism. Eh sino bang gago may sabi na terrorism yun?

DJ Mo Twister retweeted Sotto’s tweet and added the caption: “Relax. Have a Pepsi.” Mo was most likely referring to the late starlet Pepsi Paloma whom Sotto’s brother Vic and friends Joey De Leon and Richie D’Horsie had raped in 1982.

During the 2016 election campaign, Sotto was asked about the issue during a radio interview.
Sotto was allegedly involved in a cover-up which included forcing Paloma to sign an “affidavit of resistance” and drop the rape complaint.
He claimed that the rape was just a “gimmick” of Rey dela Cruz, Paloma’s manager.
“Para ho sa kaalaman ng lahat… gimik ho ni Rey dela Cruz ‘yun. Hindi ho totoo ‘yun. Pinagtangkaan nilang magkaso kasi tinira sila ng libel nina Vic (Sotto) at Joey (De Leon). Idinemanda sila ng libel kaya pinagtangkaan nilang balikan ng kaso. Pero makikita n’yo naman sa nangyari pagkatapos, wala naman dahil gimmick lang talaga ni nasirang Rey ‘yon.” the senator said.
