With all this fake news circulating online, kung nabiktima ka at naniwala sa fake news it's ok wala na tayong magagawa, damage is done, delete your post. Buti na lang nanaig ang katotohanan. Buti na lang may social media, dahil kung wala ,lahat tayo galit na sa Gobyerno dahil sa pagpapakalat ng mga anti ng fake news. They have done this before, manipulate the public countless times. Why do we let ourselves be fooled over and over again. Hahayaan ba nating manaig ulit ang kasamaan at gamitin ang galit ng tao para sa hindi makatotohanan?

Bumawi na tayo it's not too late, official Opening is still few days ahead. Let's start spreading good news and cheering our athletes and stop spreading fake news! This event will never be perfect and no country will ever make it perfect, but we can make this hosting, worth it and something to be proud of.
