Mocha Uson, is the sexy entertainer turned blogger who is accused of propagating misinformation and inciting hate on social media against the Liberal Party headed by Vice President Leni Robredo. She dismisses those allegations for the first time through Facebook. In her post is the invitation from the Philippine Army. She calls the yellow trolls or those who are pro-Liberal Party to watch out. She said that she provides credible sources on her blogs – that they cannot accuse them as such. Robredo also goes on a YouTube stunt by speaking on YouTube videos against the administration while Uson brings her case to Twitter as per video.
The term “dilawan or yellows” is the tag name of Liberal Party supporters online. It is the ruling political group during the time of former President Benigno Aquino III. Mocha Uson said that if nobody believes her for saying the truth, she won’t get invited to the PHILIPPINE ARMY on their 120th Philippine Army Anniversary. Commanders and Top Generals in the entire Philippines attend the event. She is one of the guest speakers. Do you think I will be given an opportunity to speak in that even if I were a fake blogger?; she asks. She challenges her detractors that next time they call her a fake propagator, they better make sure they have something to back it up.
Social Media Fans
Social media followers of Mocha Uson are very supportive of her. They give encouraging comments on her Facebook post with around 9,000 likes and more than 1,000 shares. Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao confirms that Uson is invited to share the challenges of a social media player. Hao said there are two others social media speakers who are invited. They are Pompee La Vina, the social media director of the presidential campaign of the President; and Abe Olandres, an online entrepreneur.
