QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – When U2 staged a concert in Manila last weeked, Bono paid tribute to Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and other Filipino women. He even dedicated the song “Ultra Violet’” to Ressa.
That didn’t sit well with Vice President Leni Robredo, who wasn’t included in the tribute.
”How dare Bono snub me after all I’ve done for thr Filipino people — from being Housing Secretary to Drug Czar, not to mention my other pet project which were all documented by photo ops,” she said.
Robredo compared her snub with that infamous incident when The Beatles snubbed the First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos when they were in Manila for a concert.
