An online squabble between Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda and Fashion Pulis erupted a few days ago over a photograph of Interior and Local Government Secretary and presidential wannabe Mar Roxas directing traffic on a rainy day.
Fashion Pulis, a popular celebrity gossip blog, posted the picture of Roxas sent by a reader, sparking criticisms the cabinet member has become desperate in his presidential bid for 2016. Leah Navarro, a known administration ally, however quickly corrected the blog post, saying Roxas’ photograph was taken back in 2009. Lacierda also pounced at Fashion Pulis for putting the DILG secretary in a bad light. Fashion Pulis has remained mum about the controversial post.
