Senator Hontiveros Tweets China Protest, Wearing Mask Made In China

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros knows the power of social media, and so she uses her Twitter account to criticize the Duterte administration and everything and everyone that’s connected to the President, including China.

In an obvious reference to China’s claim over territories in the South China Sea that the Philippines asserts its sovereignty over, Hontiveros posted a selfie wearing a face mask she ordered from the online shopping portal Lazada.

The mask had an inscription that says, “Amin ang Pinas,” (The Philippines is ours).

In her caption, she stated: “To China: Amin ang Pinas. Ngayon at magpakailanman.” (To China: the Philippines is ours. Now and forever.)

But alas, Hontiveros failed to notice the fine print on the face mask she wore. It was made in China!

Many netizens also noticed her selfie showed her with a clenched fist, a trademark widely attributed to Duterte and his supporters.
