House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano drew flak from netizens for supposedly putting up an exhibit of memorabilia in honor of the fallen basketball superstar Kobe Bryant inside a government-run facility.

Netizens got irked after Cayetano, a die-hard fan of Bryant, staged an exhibit along the rear entrance of the House Representatives on Wednesday consisting some memorabilia items of the late five-time NBA champion.

Bryant died in an ill-fated chopper crash last January 26 in Calabasas, California.

Cayetano said the items in the exhibit came from his personal collection, adding that it was his way of paying tribute to the fallen former NBA most valuable player.

Twitter user @ouisville accused Cayetano of just using the death of Bryant to push his political agenda.

“Imagine, kailangan mo pa gumamit ng patay na tao para lang ma boost yung popularity at agenda mo,” @ouisville said.

“That’s how shameless you are,” he added.

Twitter user Mia Magdalena (@miamagdalena) said Cayetano’s gimmick was “symbolic failure yet again.”

“Grieve if you must, but bawal epal, Alan,” said Magdalena.

Lawyer Jesus Falcis chided Cayetano for allegedly using tax payer’s money for his personal tribute to the late Los Angeles Lakers legend.

“Why use Philippine taxes for this exhibit? What public good or public interest of the Filipino people is advanced by this exhibit? My gahd, I hate drugs,” said Falcis.

“Kaya pala may Kobe exhibit ang House of Representatives. Dahil big Lakers fan daw ang Speaker na si Alan Epal Cayetano. Galing sa kanya yung mga memorabilia sa exhibit. Exhibit 1: Epal,” he added.

Meanwhile, Twitter user Bong Nojas (@bongnojas) reminded Cayetano that the Filipino haven’t forget yet the controversial P55-million cauldron built during the 2019 Southeast Asian Games which was facilitated by the no less than the Speaker of the Lower House.

“Bat wala yung collection niya na kalderoooooooooo!!!” said Nojas.
