The hashtag #FireMocha continues to trend on its third day as netizens are still calling to have Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson removed from office.
As of 11 am, #FireMocha is in the top 2 of the trending hashtags and topics on Twitter.
One netizen hit Uson’s post about how the Yellows are using #FireMocha to distract the public from Comelec chief Andres Bautista’s issue of alleged ill-gotten wealth.
“LOL Mocha thinks #FireMocha was distraction from Bautista case, eh yung Bautista case nga yung ginagawa nilang distraction from Kian & BOC,” @anjpessumal tweeted.

The hashtag #FireMocha started trending on Tuesday evening, August 22, after Uson posted a meme daring Vice President Leni Robredo and Senators Bam Aquino, Antonio Trillanes IV, and Risa Hontiveros, the same politicians who visited the wake of Kian Lloyd delos Santos, to visit the wake of a cop killed during a drug buy bust operation. The problem is that the news article Uson tagged in the meme was published a year ago, causing netizens to accuse her of making a misleading post and of being incompetent that she did not bother fact-checking the circumstances behind the news article.
Here are some more tweets that used the trending hashtag:

One Twitter users Uson will not be fired as she was appointed to “spread inaccuracies and hate.”
Sorry, but this gov't. won't #FireMocha. She's there to do exactly just that: troll the entire world and spread innacuracies & hate.👊🏼

‘Trafficker of hate’
Hate is a drug, and Mocha Uson is a trafficker of hate. There's no place for her in civilized political discourse. #FireMocha
