Netizens react to word war between Ed Lingao and Tulfo brothers

Social media is abuzz with the word war between Ed Lingao and two Tulfo brothers, Erwin and Ben, with netizens taking sides.

The exchange of words via Facebook posts and videos started when Lingao called out Erwin Tulfo for reacting and even cussing Sen. Risa Hontiveros over a fake meme that painted the lady senator as sympathetic to the Maute terrorists. In the middle of the word war between Lingao and Erwin Tulfo, the latter’s older brother, Ben, butted in and even teased and laughed at Lingao for stammering.
And the netizens are observing the growing fire between both parties, all while giving their reactions on social media.

@HecklerForever commended Lingao for being himself “in an industry full of Tulfos.”

And @ArbetBernardo expressed the same sentiment addressing future journalists.

@MadzJackson praised how Lingao’s rebuttal to the Tulfos was “on point.”

@GuienEPGarma recommended Lingao’s “pushbacks” against Erwin Tulfo.

Of course, memes played a role in the social media reactions.

Former lawmaker Teddy Casiño weighed in and scored Tinglao way ahead of the Tulfo brothers, although he mistook Ben Tulfo for Raffy Tulfo.

A UP associate professor also praised Lingao’s move as a way of showing media criticism.

The ‘alternative’ Twitter account bearing PCOO Asec. Mocha Uson’s name, @AsecMargauxUson, slammed Erwin Tulfo and praised Lingao.

“Ed Lingao has personally covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Erwin Tulfo, on the other hand, is merely covered with leather,” the account tweeted.

The Alt account also slammed Ben Tulfo for wearing shades indoors.

“Ben Tulfo chides Ed Lingao for wearing a “bulletproof,” Well, Ed was on Iraq, a war zone. What’s Tulfo’s excuse for wearing shades indoors?” it said.

@krizzy_kalerqui also hit Uson for getting involved in the word war.

“Ed Lingao is on a burning spree. His latest casualty, the “fake news” queen herself, Mocha Uson!” she tweeted.

And Ben Tulfo’s “pulborize” pronunciation made @bolantay laugh.
