In her Facebook post, Rita shared her photo with Kate at NAIA, saying that they chose to avoid VIP treatment and refused the offer from some airport staff to let her skip lining up.

“Ganyan dapat ang mga Pilipino, may DISIPLINA at nasa TAMA. Hindi ung pasaway, singitan, unahan. Nakakahiya.” she added.
