At least sikat! Eric Yap doesn’t mind being photoshopped with COVID-19 virus by ‘dilawan’ blogger
ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Eric Yap isn’t done throwing shade at blogger Jover Laurio after she exposed him as an “epal” politiko.
Yap on Tuesday (September 15) said Laurio did the public a favor when she posted a photo of him photoshopped with an image of the COVID-19 virus.
“Ang pinopost na ni Jover hindi na paninira sa gobyerno. Ang pino-post niya ay picture ko na kung saan may virus ng corona sa mukha. Okay po yun. Tama po yun para makapagbigay tayo ng awareness tungkol sa corona, COVID-19 virus,” he said at the start of the Department of Transportation’s budget briefing before the House appropriations committee.
Laurio’s post was triggered by Yap’s remark that she would’ve looked like the COVID-19 virus if it became human. The blogger, who is identified with the opposition, earlier posted a photo of the lawmaker inaugurating a building of a Benguet hospital named after him.
Yap apologized to Laurio if his comment offended her.
“Kung siya ay nainsulto dito, ako po ay sincerely na humihingi ng paumanhin sa kanya,” he said.
