Netizens hit Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson for throwing shade at the Commission on Human Rights and told her to look for the Philippine National Police instead over the holdup incident that Uson reposted on her Facebook page.
Twitter user @j0e_sef posted screenshots of Uson’s post about the CCTV footage of a holdup incident and the response of the original poster of the footage, Cheng Bigay.
In her Facebook post on August 10, Uson said, “Sa tingin niyo sino ang papanigan at ipagtanggol ng CHR dito? Sabi nga ng isang celebrity tao pa rin sila kahit nagkakasala…”
This was her caption for the CCTV footage she re-posted but originally posted by Bigay.
In her August 8 Facebook post, Bigay wrote:
“Hold-up incident caught on CCTV cameras at 11:47 pm last night in San Juan City
Change has come na din talaga pagdating sa style ng panghoholdap. Dati, tumatakbo lang sila, tapos nag-motorsiklo and then ngayon, naka-sasakyan na! Ibang klase talaga. Buti na lang talaga may Grab/Uber ‘pag late ka na makakauwi.
Stay safe, everyone!”
But Bigay did not seem impressed by Uson’s post mentioning the CHR.
“Hi Mocha. Pinost ko ang CCTV footage na ‘to para maging aware ang mga tao na may ganitong klaseng paraan na ng paggawa ng krimen. Bakit CHR agad ang pinag-iinitan mo eh ang trabaho ng CHR ay protektahan tayo sa pang-aabuso na gawa ng mga government authorities?” Bigay wrote.
“Saka hindi ba’t ang dapat mong itanong ay kung nasaan ang PNP at kung ano ang aksyon nila sa mga ganitong klaseng modus? O di kaya suggestions man lang kung paano maiiwasan ang ganitong pangyayari?” she said.
Bigay slammed Uson for giving the issue a political spin.
“Marami ka naman pwedeng sabihin o punahin pero mas pinili mo na haluan ito ng politika. Mas concern ka pa sa “papanigan” ng CHR at sa opinion ng isang celebrity. Nasaan ang malasakit mo sa biktima at sa amin na pwede ding mabiktima?” she added.
“Ibabalik ko sa’yo ang tanong. Sino ang papanigan at ipagtatanggol ni Asec. Mocha Uson sa issue na ‘to?” Bigay said.
In his Twitter post, @j0e_sef said, “Mocha was burned! Burnt hard!”

We checked Uson’s Facebook page, but we could no longer find her post about the holdup incident and CHR, which she posted on August 10 at 5:34 pm. Instead, we found another post about the holdup incident on August 10 at 10 pm on her page, but it no longer contained her comment about CHR.
