According to Inday Espina Varona who worked as a contributing writer for ABS-CBN News and formerly worked as the Philippines country head of Change.org, noted that those who protested against Mocha Uson should answer her directly.

The journalist stated that the spread of false information and fake news will never stop by restraining anyone's freedom of expression.

In a follow up post, Inday Espina Varona who is also a known critic of Mocha Uson noted that she is not defending Mocha Uson but defending only her freedom of expression. Varona was quoted as saying "I am defending her right to free expression -- same as the right to free expression of EVERYONE, of any color. Same as I defend the HUMAN RIGHTS of EVERYONE."


A group of dissatisfied social media user in the Philippines started a petition on Change.org calling the attention of Facebook to block the page of Mocha Uson despite the fact that it has more than 4 million followers made headlines earlier, even national news media outlet posted an article about the petition.

Here's the Complete Statement of Inday Espina Varona:

Hindi natitigil ang pagkalat ng maling impormasyon o pekeng news sa pamamagitan ng pagbusal ng karapatan ng malayang pagpapahayag.

Anyare sa inyo? Eh hindi ba nakiki never-again kayo? Tapos pag kaaway, mauuna kayo manawagan ng pag-busal -- and on general, sweeping points pa, instead of a specific violation of standards.
You do NOT defeat the cult of fake news and lazy, cynical propaganda by calling for a clampdown on free expression.

Eh di wala na kayong pinagkaiba sa mga duwag at mga pikon na nilaro ang Facebook para mawala ang mga posts ng mga kasamahan ko sa hanapbuhay at mga kritiko nina Duterte at Marcos.
Sagutin nyo si Uson, punto per punto sa mga pahina ninyo. Ituwid ang mga mali at malisyosong "alternative" information na kinakalat nya.

Ipakita nyo na mas maayos kayo mag-isip at mas may respeto sa kapwa kesa sa kanya.
Kung kaya nyo. Pare-pereho lang kayo lahat.

Kaya tayo ganito, eh. Puro shortcuts. Puro double standards. All sides.
You can share if you want.
