Twitter is abuzz with negative comments about the airplane selfies taken by President Duterte and his aide Senator Bong Go while Taal volcano spewed giant ash and smoke plumes.

Duterte and Go were aboard a private airplane on their way back to Manila from Davao City when they took photos of the ride. The senator reportedly said they were the first to land in Manila airport Monday after several flights were canceled due to Taal’s ash eruption.

Not all netizens were pleased with the presidential snapshots taken aboard the jet.

“Punyeta di namin kailangan ng selfies niya. Advisories, ground help, evacuation and relief ops. Yun po ang kailangan. Wala talaga kayong ambag sa lipunan! Puro porma. Ang gago!” @beverly_heels tweeted.

Twitter user @pilipinas_mnl said: “Why pose for a photo when people are suffering?”

“Nakuha pa talaga ni Bong magpa picture. The level of insensitivity is astounding,” @WomanityMP said.

“People are calling out for help at heto kayong magiting na ibinabalandra pa ang pagiging ignorante’t apathetic ninyo sa mga tao. Nakasusuka!,” @txplsm_gondii said.

“Pucha! Magtrabaho kayo hindi yung puro picture at epal lagi,” @semjomel commented.

Netizen @gian_macaspac tweeted: “These pics don’t mean anything. What the people need are concrete plans to keep the loss of life, property and livelihood at a minimum.”
