Mocha Uson defends her controversial Facebook post in which she uses a photo of Honduras army while asking prayers for the Philippine military who are fighting the Maute group in Marawi City.
In her response to Rappler’s article about the issue, Mocha Uson tells the news agency to use their common sense.
“Rappler minsan gumamit din ng common sense wag masyadong mag magaling,” she said.
“I did not say na Philippine Army yan. I did not say that picture was taken from Marawi. It’s a symbol of army praying,” she explained.
“Symbolismo tawag dyan. Pls naman gamit naman ng COMMON SENSE. Wag mema lang. JOURNALIST KAYO DIBA? Ang caption ko lang ay ipanalangin natin ang ating mga sundalo. Hindi ko sinabi sundalo natin yan. Hindi yan tulad ng Inquirer na gumamit ng picture at sinabing yun ay nangyayari sa Marawi,” Uson further elaborate.
“Common sense lang na hindi sa atin yan kasi may flag sila sa vest nila. Ba’t ko ipopost na sa Pilipinas yan e may flag nga ng ibang bansa. Common sense na it is a symbolism,” she added.
Radio DJ Mo Twister is the first to criticize Mocha Uson for using wrong photo in her post. Mo called Mocha a ‘journalism kuto’ and “an insult to every hardworking student or aspiring journalist.”
