Netizens notice how media describe venue of Marcos 100th birthday celebration: ‘Libingan lang, walang bayani’

Twitter users definitely noticed how some media outlets ended their tweets about the venue of the 100th birthday celebration of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos up to the word “Libingan” instead of “Libingan ng mga Bayani” and they love it.
ABS-CBN News tweeted: “Marcoses to mark late strongman’s 100th birthday at Libingan.”

The Philippine Star also did the same thing with their tweet: “Ferdinand Marcos 100th birthday party set at Libingan.”

Some Twitters lauded the actions of these media outlets.

“’Libingan’? Nahihiya silang ilagay yung buong pangalan, WTF,” one tweeted.

A Twitter user even corrected GMA News’ tweet, asking them to take note to use only “Libingan” and not “Libingan ng mga Bayani.”

When the Marcoses pulled off a surprise burial for the late dictator’s remains at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in November 2016, aside from inspiring protests, it also inspired some netizens to change the name of the Libingan ng mga Bayani on Google Maps. It was changed to “Libingan ng mga Bayani at Isang Magnanakaw.”
