Malas si Imee! Netizens blame Marcos for Fighting Maroons’ loss after she poses with UP senators
Students, alumni and supporters of the University of the Philippines believe Senator Imee Marcos jinxed the Fighting Maroons in their do-or-die match against the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers in the UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball semifinals.
Superstitious UP fans said Marcos caused the Fighting Maroons to lose by posing with senators who graduated from the university.
A photo shared by Senator Richard Gordon showed Marcos with himself and Senators Juan Miguel Zubiri and Nancy Binay.
The caption of Gordon’s photo read: “Cheering for UP! #UPFight @upmbt”
Doubts persist over Marcos’ claim that she graduated from UP. The university has no records that she obtained a degree there even though she had posted a photo showing that she attended the commencement rites of the UP College of Law.
UP fans took to Twitter to blame Marcos for the Fighting Maroons’ loss to the UST Growling Tigers.
Bwisit kasi si Imee the UP Wannabe 😂 Ganyan talaga pag fake grad na nakiki-cheer sa UP. Red pa ang dala, hindi maroon, halatang fake UP 😆 Jinx tuloy.
