Fair weather fans! Award winning writer bashes Cayetanos, Poe for riding on UP fame


Where were Senator Grace Poe, Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano and former Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano when the University of the Philippines was tagged as a hotbed of communist recruitment?

That was the question posed by Palanca award-winning writer Ogie Rosa upon seeing the three politikos’ social media posts expressing how proud they were of the UP Fighting Maroons for securing a finals berth in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament.

Rosa tweeted: “Nakiki-cheer sila Grace Poe, Pia at Alan Cayetano sa UP Maroons. Pero nung nire-REDTAG ni Pduts ang UP as breeding ground for communists, nganga lang. AH EWAN!”

His tweet has garnered over 500 retweets and 4,700 likes as of Saturday (December 1).

Poe recently drew flak for riding on the Fighting Maroons’ victory by having several Twitter accounts tweet the hashtag, #AtinNaPOEIto, so it will trend in the Philippines.
