Former Quezon Rep. Erin Tañada is not amused after a senator reportedly treated suicide lightly.

Tañada reminded Villar that suicide is not a joke after she announced that if she was head of the Philippine Carabao Center, she might consider suicide out of supposed shame over weak performance.

Villar, chair of the Senate committee on agriculture, reportedly expressed concern that the country’s milk requirements are mostly met by imported milk products.

“After 28 years, my God, kung ako ang head niyan at ganyan ang performance ko, magsu-suicide na ako. Nakakahiya!” Villar said during a Senate hearing.

Tañada noticed Villar’s latest comment, telling her that suicide is not a joke.

“Boundary na for today… Conversion of agricultural lands for housing and factories… and now Suicide…Suicide is not a joke,” the former lawmaker tweeted on September 1.

Tañada also observed that Villar was at it again after she commented about the conversation of farmlands.

“Here we go again…🤣” he tweeted.
