A netizen claimed that he spotted a well-known journalist while violating the Executive Number 28, also known as Nationwide smoking ban imposed by President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a post, netizen Renato S. Lugto Jr. posted the photos of journalist Doris Bigornia while allegedly having a smoking break.
Lugto expressed his disappointment that even well-known people like Bigornia doesn’t respect the order of the President.
“Para sa mga experto dyn nasa sport complex po si doris sa mga oras na yan,” Lugto said.
Meanwhile, the supporters of Doris Bigornia swarmed the profile of Lugto and said that the uploader only edited the photo to destroy the reputation of the journalist.
According to the supporters of the journalist, it seems that Bigornia got six fingers in his left hand.
However, Lugto said that the people should widen their eyes and look carefully on the second picture he posted.
“Para sa mga nagmamagaling na experto sa pagtingin sa larawan hindi po edited yan palad po un naaaninag nyo na parang daliri tignan po mabuti.” Lugto said.
Lugto also said that he would do everything to prove that the photo was legitimate and not edited as his critics claimed.
Bigornia is not yet speaking on the accusations of Lugto.
Lugto is a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte.
