Presidential Communications Operation Office Asec. Mocha Uson returned her award to UST Alumni Association after receiving bashings from netizens.
The blogger-turned-public official hits back to Senator Joel Villanueva.
After the continuous bashing over the controversial Thomasian award, Presidential Communication Operations Office Asec. Mocha Uson finally breaks her silence on the said issue. The blogger-turned-public official revealed that she already returned the award to UST Alumni Association to stop the negative comments towards her.
“Hindi ko hiningi ang award na ‘to. Binigay sa akin, tinanggap ko pero para matigil na ang issue na ito na isang maliit na bagay, ibinalik ko na lang ito dahil sobra na ang pambu-bully ng ilang Thomasians kay Sir Henry Tenedero,” she said on her livestream video.
Mocha is happy for the recognition but further said that the award should not be a big issue to her bashers.
“Masaya naman po ako. Dapat po wala naman isyu dito. Hindi naman po Nobel Prize yan,” she stated.
“Sila ba do they embody the Thomasian core values sa pang aalipusta sa isang katulad ko?” she referred to bashers.
On the latter part of her video, she hit back to Senator Joel Villanueva over his comment.
“Huwag siyang magmalinis dahil siya ang hinatulan ng Ombudsman na ma-dismiss dahil sa kanyang kasong graft and corruption,” she fearlessly said.
As of now, Senator Villanueva has not yet released his official statement over the issue.
