It is a big insult for many Filipinos particularly Bongbong Marcos’ supporters what VP Leni Robredo said during an interview. Most of her attackers on social media are not real people, she added. This proves to show that she has no clue how social media works. Even trolls cannot function without someone behind it. It is also not the number of posts that make an issue viral but the quality of content. Therefore, Robredo has no right to advice President Rodrigo Du30 not to let his emotions get the better of him in quitting the ICC or International Criminal Court. She definitely does not have the brains needed.

Not Real People
Leni Robredo says in an interview that the attacks that she receives mostly come from a well-oiled infrastructure. They are not from real people. She comments that her small percentage of real people is not enough defending her. It is hard to keep up with her attackers who employ those expensive setups, she said.
Lack of Knowledge or Total Stupidity?
Social media practitioners and online marketing gurus can attest that to get followers, one must be credible, consistent, knowledgeable, an expert on his or her field, and has a unique personality. Originality is a must so to speak given the information overload during the digital age. Online influencers must build their name in a course of time. A politician cannot just hire people to post attacks against their enemies to get patronage using trolls. That won’t last. Besides, Facebook and Google’s strict policies just won’t allow duplicated or reported users to linger.
ICC as a Safety Net
We shouldn’t be ruled by temper in deciding whether or not to quit from the ICC, Robredo pleaded. However, she forgets that she resigned from Du30’s Cabinet in 2016 due to policy differences. Taking the ICC as a “safety net” for alleged victims of human rights abuse by public officials can only mean that the association can certainly be used by anti-government movers like her against a ruling party or official.
Social Media Criticisms
Perhaps, Robredo does not realize that the very reason why she gets all the negative criticisms via social media is her “shallow” views on sensitive issues. It is really true that once she opens her mouth, she just destroys herself. Then she has the guts to blame it on President Du30 and Bongbong Marcos. A typical trait of a loser.
