Special Assistant to the President Christopher Go is getting flak online for supposedly shamelessly exploiting the death of former Senator Edgardo Angara for publicity.

Go, rumored to run for senator in next year’s polls, seized the chance to meet the grieving Angara family upon the arrival of the remains of the senator at the Villamor Air base Sunday, and shared his photos to the media. The senator’s body was reportedly airlifted from the Tagaytay family home to Manila.

“So naabutan ko po doon at sumakay na lang po ako at sumama ako doon sa Villamor at doon po at sinalubong ng kaniyang may bahay at eldest daughter niya po. Naabutan ko po, nakatabi ko pa po iyong katawan niya,” the former media-shy official said in an interview transcribed by the Palace.

“Actually po nasabi ko na po sa kaniya kanina at naiparating ko na po kay Ginang Angara ang pakikiramay ni Pangulong Duterte at sa kaniyang anak kanina, nabulong ko na po noong nag-landing po iyong helicopter,” he said.

Some netizens however were dismayed with Go’s latest publicity stunt at the expense of a deceased public servant.

“Pamilya na lang sana ng yumao ang nasa mga imahe. Kaso ganyan ka pabida si bong go,” @Harperblammo tweeted, reacting to his photos posted by GMA News on Twitter.

“Baka mg selfie pa yan ah,” @thed_french said.

@betseyklark tweeted: “The over-exposed BongGo is all over the place.”
