Where Is Francis Baraan IV?

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) — First, we reported that GMA News’ self-imposed political analyst Richard Heydarian mysteriously lost all his followers to his Twitter account. Now, another anti-Duterte media socialite Francis Baraan IV has lost — not his followers — but all his tweets!

Of late, Baraan has been promoting a Duterte-cussing hashtag, which we are unable to print because it violates Facebook’s community standards.

Both Heydarian and Baraan are known to be anti-Duterte.

Richard Heydarian Mysteriously Loses 116K Followers

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Richard Heydarian, GMA News’ self-proclaimed resident political analyst, is scratching his head over a mysterious phenomenon on his Facebook account.

The supposedly anti-Administration media personality suddenly noticed that his 116K + followers had suddenly disappeared. He wondered if he had said something that offended his fans and allies.

To confirm the phenomenon, Heydarian posted a question on his FB page: “Hello, is anyone there?” He waited and waited and waited, but there was zero response — zero likes and zero comments.

GMA News’ correspondent Chiara Zambrano has been assigned by the network to investigate.

This is a developing story.
