MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Former President NoyNoy Aquino took to Twitter just hours after the Supreme Court voted, 8-6, to oust Maria Lourdes Sereno from her post as Chief Justice.
Aquino compared the SC ruiling to unripened manggo which he says is sour and leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
PNoy’s comment angered many Filipinos who are avid fans of raw or unripened manggo, known in the vernacular as manggang hilaw.
“The more sour the manggo is, the more delicious,” one raw manggo fan told The Adobo Chronicles. “Kaya nga sinasamahan ng bagoong. That makes the raw manggo even more delectable.”
Other raw manggo fans took to social media to lambast Aquino. “Leave our manggang hilaw alone,” they decried.
