- Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon took to twitter to share sentiments on the recent spate of killings in the country.
PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson on Saturday, August 19 slammed Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon on the latter’s tweet expressing concern regarding the killings in the country.
Uson took to her Facebook account to blast the beauty queen teasing her to use her brains not just her beauty.
“Ate wag puro ganda ginagamit mo. Iba ang MURDER at iba ang pagpatay sa mga kriminal. HINDI INUTOS NG AMING PANGULO ANG PATAYIN ANG INOSENTE. Kung meron mga tiwaling pulis hindi ito kasalanan ng Pangulo at ito ay kanyang paparusahan. Don’t confuse MURDER WITH KILLING THE CRIMINALS.,” Uson wrote.
Mocha’s reaction stemmed from Mariel de Leon’s tweet sharing concerns on how people became desensitized about the killings in the country.
On her tweet Mariel de Leon said “It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that people are okay with murder because their leader says it is okay”.
Few hours after Mocha’s rant verus Mariel’s tweet, the beauty queen also shared on Twitter, “Didn’t mention anything specific, but hey! If you’re affected, I guess the shoe fits perfectly! 👠#SashayAway”
This is not the first time that Mariel shared a political tweet. Last May, the beauty queen also figure in an online controversy when she tweeted opposition regarding Mocha Uson’s appointment in PCOO. That tweet went viral earning both supporters and bashers.
Being part of the administration and die-hard supporter of the president, De Leon’s tweet didn’t sit well with Mocha. The PCOO Usec then went to an all out defense for the President and slammed the beauty queen online.
