Here’s Mocha Uson’s complete Facebook post on her returning the UST Alumni award.

“Ako po ay humahanga sa UST Alumni Association Inc. dahil sa kabila ng pambu-bully ng ilang Thomasians sa kanila sila ay nanindigan. Lingid sa kaalaman ng lahat bago pa po lumabas ang statement nila ay sinabi ko na po sa President ng UST Alumni Association Inc. na si Sir Henry Tenedero na akin na pong isasauli ang award. Ngunit sinabi niya sa akin na wala sa isip nila na ito’y bawiin. Hindi ko lamang ito isinapubliko dahil sobrang nao-OA na ako sa ilang Thomasians sa pagpapalaki ng issue na ito. Marami pa pong mas mahahalagang bagay ang dapat pinag-uusapan kesa dito. TAMA NA ANG DRAMA at pag-usapan na natin ang mahahalagang bagay tulad ng pagtulong sa mga naturukan ng DENGVAXIA at panagutin ang mga may sala dito. Hindi na biro ito. Dapat ay may gawin ng hakbang ang DOH para mas makatulong sa ating mga kababayan. Pagtuunan din natin ang mga kababayan natin na naapektuhan sa pag-aalburuto ng bulkang Mayon. Let’s all MOVE ON at tumulong tayo sa ating mga kababayan.”
