Urban Dictionary’s Latest Word Addition: Ressa

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The crowd-sourced Urban Dictionary has added a new word: Ressa.

Inspired by the true-to-life Maria Ressa, CEO of Rappler, the new listing defines Ressa as a noun that means: a cheat, liar, tax-evader.

It is also an adjective that means: delusional, attention-deficient, fake.

A spokesperson for Rappler told The Adobo Chronicles that a champagne reception was held at the online news source’ s offices to celebrate their boss’ inclusion in the dictionary. “It’s another feather on her cap,” he said.
