Japanese Protester Is An Avid Duterte Supporter

AD2A6A27-EB70-4930-A265-DB84D22E9668MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Although the issues raised at a recent protest rally in Mendiola were varied — from Martial Law to U.S. Imperialism — the venerable ABS-CBN focused on a Japanese national which the news network claimed was protesting against extra-judicial killings under the Duterte government.

The man was photographed mimicking a dead body and writing a chalk message in Japanese.

But lo and behold, the Japanese national is actually an avid supporter of Duterte.

What he wrote translates into “I love Tatay Digong!”

Sometimes, being multi-lingual is a plus for journalists and news photographers.  It prevents embarrassment.
