Netizens corrected sexy entertainer and blogger Mocha Uson for her erroneous post about a certain “Article 263” of the Philippine Constitution.
Mocha was reacting to a TV5 Interaksyon.com article about the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) filing a tax evasion case against Mighty Corporation. She posted: “9.6B ang tax evasion case ng Mighty Corporation at ayon sa Article 263 ng Constitution pag sinettle nila ngayon yan hanggang 10x ang babayaran nila and that is 96 Billion. PAMPANGA WAREHOUSE pa lang yan.”
However, there are only 18 articles in the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
Facebook user Alyssa Faye Cabalang’s reaction to Mocha’s mistake even went viral, gaining over 4,600 shares, as of writing.
“HALA SH*T, edi anong Constitution pala inaral ko? Bat hanggang Article 18 lang nabasa ko. Dami ko backlog hanggang Article 263,” Cabalang wrote.
Columnist Tonyo Cruz also asked his friends and followers about their reaction to Mocha’s post.
Another Facebook user “thanked” Mocha for adding 245 articles to the Philippine Constitution.
Mocha already corrected her post and took it as another opportunity to slam Robredo.
“In a previous post, I posted Article 263 of PH constitution. It is Section 263 of the Tax Code. However, unlike some VP I know, there was no intent to mislead the people and this was just an honest mistake. Thank you for understanding. And thank you to the DDS who defended my mistake,” Mocha wrote.
Section 263 of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997 is all about the “unlawful possession or removal of articles subject to excise tax payment of the tax.”
