If you’re on Facebook, chances are you’ve seen this photo shared a couple of times in your feed:
I don’t know her personally, not even a fan. I just know her as one of the personalities from EDSA Revolution 1 – that’s it.
I saw this image 2 days ago. It was shared by a schoolmate in high school..together with her hateful comment towards the person in the photo. When I first saw the image, I thought why would someone support a terrorist group? So I took the time to check news sources – CNN, Inquirer, GMA, and many more just so I can see – maybe she was just misquoted. But lo and behold, I saw absolutely NOTHING about this. No headlines. No interviews. No footages. Nothing. Nada.
So I asked my schoolmate if it was real because I saw no verifiable source. Naturally, I received no reply. Typical. And again today, I saw an ex officemate share the same photo, but from a different Facebook page . I asked him too if it was real.
Because I was receiving no answers from these people, I checked Inquirer again. And you know what I found?
In short – that image is fake. But you know what really bothered me? Look at all these hateful comments below.
