Former Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) deputy executive director Arnell Ignacio criticized campaign advertiser Yoly Villanueva-Ong over her controversial tweet against the supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte who got affected by the Mindanao quake.
In an interview with Erwin Tulfo last Sunday, Ignacio said that the tweets of Ong had a negative effect on the victims of the quake, saying that even if she apologized already, the advertising executive still continued to criticize the supporters of the President.
“Nag a-apologize, pero may sasabihin pa siya, alam mo kinikilabutan ako sa babaeng ito… ang sarap sampalin,” Ignacio said.
“Anong karapatan mo na sabihin na ikaw ang gigising sa isip ng mga taga Mindanao na mali sila, parang… sino ka para sabihin na ikaw ang tama at yung mga sumusuporta sa pangulong Duterte ay mali,” he added.
According to Ignacio, this is the first time he heard someone say such words against the Mindanaoans.
Even the host, Erwin Tulfo said that this is his first time to encounter such a woman.
“Alam mo kahit si Satanas mahihiya sa kasamaan nito,” Ignacio said.
In another interview on Thursday, Ignacio again criticized Ong saying that she became infamous because of her tweet.
“Ngayon sikat na siya! Contender na siya na pwedeng mamahala sa impiyerno. Mapapahiya si Satanas,” he said.
Ignacio then explained that the supporters of the opposition might be so disappointed that the popularity of President Duterte is not lessening that’s why they’re saying such things to the Mindanaoans.
“Ibang kasamaan itong bumabalot sa puso at isip ng mga dilawan na ito,” said Ignacio.
A few days ago, Ong made a series of controversial tweets against the supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Hindi pa ba NYO Ma-gest? Gusto na kayong lamunin ng lupa. Magdasal na kayo at humingi ng patawad,” Ong said in her now deleted tweet.
“Duts should seriously prepare for the afterlife. It’s getting hot, hotter, hottest,” she added.
Ong after days of being criticized then apologized to the netizens for her tweet.
“I pray that Mindanaoans accept my apology. And I hope this puts closure on this issue,” she said.
