Mocha Uson warns vs fake news on social media
Don’t fall for fake news spreading online.
Amid the coronavirus threat, former Palace communications official Mocha Uson has called on the public to be vigilant against false information spread on social media.
Uson, now Overseas Workers Welfare Administration deputy administration, made the appeal after a foreigner found lying on the road turned out to be drunk, and not thought to be sick as earlier reported.
“Wag po kasi basta basta nagpapakalat ng kung ano ano sa social media. Hindi po kayo nakakatulong,” Uson tweeted.
Comedian Ethel Booba couldn’t help but comment on Uson’s remark. “Expert. Chariot!” she tweeted about Uson who was previously criticized for spreading fake news while she was working at the Palace communications team.
