- Son of former Senator Bongbong Marcos was bashed by netizens anew for a “poorly-worded” tweet regarding the Davao blast
- Professional Heckler says the tweet must “have had good intentions, but was lost in translation”
- This is not the first time the younger Marcos was bashed online
Sandro Marcos, son of former Senator and defeated Vice Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos, was bashed anew for his poorly-worded tweet regarding the bloody Davao bombing.
In a tweet, the younger Marcos said in verbatim “Prayers going out to those involved in Davao explosion, hope you all keep safe. #PrayForDavao.”
Netizens will automatically get that his intention was pure – to join the nation in condemning the attack and praying for the victims. But put under stricter grammatical scrutiny, netizens noted that Sandro was indeed praying for “those involved in the attack“, which can be easily misconstrued as the people responsible for the blast – the Abu Sayyaf Group.
The London-educated lad drew bashing in social media. Famous twitter personality @ProfessionalHeckler says the tweet must have had good intentions, but was lost in translation. He said in jest that the Abu Sayyaf group expresses gratitude for the concern.
Some netizens were harsher in their comments; berating Sandro and making fun of his tweet. As of posting, the tweet has been shared more than 1,600 times and has more than three thousand favorites.
This is not the first time Sandro has been bashed on social media. He also became an online laughing stock when he accidentally voted for two presidential candidates during the May 9 elections; rendering his vote invalid.
The London-based student became famous when he appeared in various campaign sorties for his dad Bongbong, who eventually lost the elections.
