An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in the United Kingdom slammed anonymous blogger Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB) for writing about whether the UK magazine that features President Rodrigo Duterte is being paid for by Filipino taxpayers’ money.
In her Facebook post on August 27, Ging Santos called PAB “fake news” and hurled expletives at him for his blog titled “Tax na naman ba to ng Bayan?” when he talked about the magazine promoting Duterte in the UK.
Santos said the magazine was paid for by the OFWs in the UK.
“Hoy ikaw bagitong admin ng pinoy ako blog, tawagan mo ako ng mamura kita ng put*ng*n* ka! Fake news ka! Bakit Hindi mo ilantad ang pangalan mong put*ng*n* ka!!! Yang magazine na yan ay dedikasyon at pagmamahal ng mga Pilipinong nanininwala at bumoto Kay duterte dito sa UK!!! Anong tax ng bayan ang pinagsasassabi mo? G*go kaba??? Sahod ng mga OFWS YAN !! Kami kami mismo ang nagbayad sa magazine printing nyan!” she wrote.
“Isasampal ko sayu ang resibo at ginastos namin sa imprenta nyan!!” she added. “Hindi kami binayaran ng gobyerno para sa magazine na yan! Dahil isa ako sa mismong EDITOR NG MAGAZINE N YAN. Dugot pawis, dedikasyon ng mga supporters ni duterte ang mga Contributors s magazine n yan!”
Santos clarified that the magazine is not for sale.
“Lahat KUSANG LOOB! “NOT FOR SALE” ang magazine!! Hindi binebenta!! Lahat BOLUNTARYO!!” she wrote.
In his blog, PAB posted a screenshot of the tweet by @UKDDS2016 showing off the Duterte magazine.
He also wondered whether the magazine was the reason why Communications Asec. Mocha Uson and her group, Mocha Girls, went to the UK earlier this month. PAB noted how the Department of Tourism and its ads occupied a whole page on the magazine and asked how much DOT could have paid for advertising on the magazine.
