Malacañang calls on PTV to probe the editor who claimed “pinklawan” and “dilawan” are involved in the ADMU shooting

Macaranas has turned all his social media accounts private following the backlash as the incident wasn’t politically motivated

The Palace has urged state-owned People’s Television to probe editor Den Macaranas after his distasteful tweet about the shooting incident at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Macaranas claimed that the “pinklawans” and “dilawans” were involved in the shooting that took the of an ADMU security, guard, former Lamitan mayor Rosita Furigay, and her aide.

“Nagbarilan na yata ang mga Pinklawan at Dilawan @ateneo” he tweeted shortly after the incident made the news.

The “pinklawans” and “dilawans” are the terms used to call the supporters of former Vice President Leni Robredo and the Liberal Party, respectively.

“Pursuant to this, we called the attention of officials at PTV where he is allegedly a desk editor, to investigate the matter,” Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said in a statement. “We assure the public that if true, we will take the appropriate action,” she added.

Macaranas has turned all his social media accounts private following the backlash as the incident wasn’t politically motivated.

Macaranas came off like a troll.

Unfortunately, Macaranas isn’t the only one who used the incident to attack the opposition.

The gunman, Dr. Chao Tiao Yumol, has been revealed to be a supporter of the current administration and the previous one. Yumol uses his following on social media to attack Robredo.

Pres. Bongbong Marcos extended his condolences to the families affected by the shooting. 

“We are shocked and saddened by the events at the Ateneo graduation today. We mourn with the bereaved, the wounded, and those whose scars from this experience will run deep.

“We commit our law enforcement agencies to thoroughly and swiftly investigate these killings and bring all involved to justice.

“Our prayers go to the graduates, their families, the Ateneo community, and to the residents of Quezon City and Basilan.”


Macaranas worked for Radyo Inquirer Online, the radio arm of INQUIRER.net, up until 2019.
