Of late, following a tweet in response to Secretary Teddy Location that went viral, a strange deviation in the quality of the tweets of Filipino singer Regine Velasquez. Note as follows… First this… TRESPASS, ENCROACH, INFRINGE, INVADE mean to make inroads upon the property, territory, or rights of another. TRESPASS implies an unwarranted or unlawful…

Apparently not content with his new-found expat life in Spain, Filipino “influencer” and self-styled “activist” Carlos Celdran continues to keep tabs on Philippine politics. However he continues to go about it the wrong way this time getting into trouble once again after inviting his followers to effect violence upon no less than Facebook CEO Mark…

Earlier I felt sorry for Jim Paredes until I read his so-called “apology” again and realised he was praising himself for being “honest”. And what’s worse is the yellows who support him still act so high and mighty as if he did nothing wrong. Of course he did. He was judgemental to others. Bilib na…

“Influencer” is so last year’s hipster lingo and “curated” is so ten years ago old school. Yet social media “content creator” Lance de Ocampo seemingly manages to make a living bandying around those terms. De Ocampo is seemingly one such Internet parasite of late slighted by statements from business owners who’ve had enough of such…

In a statement given to the media the other day, Leni Robredo reportedly called for legislation to be…

Trust the renowned Reverse Midas Touch of the Yellowtards to turn an otherwise benign term such as “Netizen” into a concept associated with self-entitled millennial snowflake brats. That is exactly what they did in being baldly selective with how they brand anyone who dares criticise or challenge Yellowtard orthodoxy. When a social media user toes…

As if they haven’t been burnt enough yet, it seems Jover Laurio of Pinoy Ako Blog and a certain “Mrs Unlawyer” of [what’s her claim to fame nga ba?] remain locked in a mutual back-patting Twitter soiree of sorts. Quite flattering too as they revel over the fact that they had earned respective distinctions as…

If one uses Twitter to sample the general sentiment of the Filipino public, you’d think “press freedom” is top of mind for the majority of Filipinos. With the shrillness of the rhetoric of “activists” that populate social media, one would be forgiven in thinking that “press freedom” is the game-changing issue that will determine this…

Back a few days, I noted the sudden mysterious disappearance of a noted Yellowtard Twitter user who goes by the handle @MiaMagdalena. This Twitter user is a member of an active mob of Yellowtard Twitter accounts renowned for their ferocious attacks against the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and their gang-bullying of Twitter users…

Much has been said about the possibility that Queen of All Philippine Media Kris Aquino may have put at risk her mega-million peso product endorsement deals by being revealed as a possible source of funds for the Facebook “boosts” Pinoy Ako Blog personality Jover Laurio has been enjoying. So one wonders then, are such contract…
