DUTERTE FANATIC Jimmy Bondoc, a singer who was appointed to PAGCOR by the President last year, was livid. This, after, social networking site, Facebook partnered with the investigative journalists of VERA Files and Rappler to fact check online articles in the Philippines to prevent the spread of false news on social media.
Bondoc rallied his fellow Ka-DDS to support his “nationwide petition to delete Facebook.” He also asked his followers to suggest a new social media platform where they can “migrate to.” This got to be the best and the brightest idea yet from a Duterte fanatic.
Perhaps realizing his folly, Bondoc deleted his post. But it was too late. He was already a top trending topic on social media.
Here are some of the funniest and most savage reactions to Bondoc’s “brilliant idea.”
“Facts are threatening to those invested in fraud.”
“With disinformation spreading like wildfire through social media, it’s encouraging to see Facebook take a stronger stance on this issue and partner with agencies that are genuinely fighting fake news.”
