MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If there is one thing that Pinoy Ako Blog’s Jover Laurio hates the most is being called ‘pangit’ (ugly). She is ready to take anyone who calls her that to court.
So, when the blogosphere erupted with the rumor that during today’s Senate hearing on fake news, Senator Grace Poe called Laurio, ‘pangit,’ both Poe and Laurio called it fake news.
What Poe actually told Laurio was”: ‘May pangil ka rin’ (you also have fangs).
(Poe was chiding Laurio for saying that many pro-Duterte bloggers have hit her with below-the-belt comments and criticism.)
We guess fangs are less offensive than ugliness.
