MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles was trying to be witty but it boomeranged on her. Broadcast journalist Jessica Soho has accused Ressa of body shaming.
In a Facebook post criticizing Bongbong Marcos for skipping a televised taped interview with top Presidential candidates, Ressa said ”Tinimbang siya (Marcos) ni Jessica nguni’t kulang pala.” (Soho weighed Marcos but felt short.)
Soho took Ressa’s comment personally.
It will be recalled that previously, TV host Vice Ganda ”body shamed” Soho during a live concert, making fun of the latter’s weight.
Soho is contemplating on filing a discrimination lawsuit against Ressa.
This is a developing story.
