• Social media tirades irk VP Binay


    ANGERED by the continuous social media barrage against him, Vice President Jejomar Binay on Tuesday tagged a convenor of the so-called civil society group as the one behind such negative publicities.

    Binay named Leah Navarro, co-convenor of the Black and White Movement (BWM), as one of those who are responsible for the social media campaign against him.

    He said Navarro and other groups in social media are out to tarnish his reputation for political reasons.

    “They are organized groups and at their disposal, they have one million people to destroy an individual or to place their candidate in the social media trending,” Binay told reporters.

    He said these groups have already been organized for political reasons.

    “Leah Navarro and her groups, they keep on hitting me. They are no longer honest to goodness netizens,” Binay said when asked if who are those behind the social media campaign against him.

    He cited allegations that he had distributed relief bags, with his name and the Vice President’s seal on it, to the survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda.

    Binay clarified that there were only ten relief bags bearing his name and it was his friends who put the stickers on the relief bags without his consent.

    The Vice President also cited pictures of him, which were maliciously posted on social media making it appear that he was not allowed by an American serviceman to meddle with their relief operations.

    Denying such allegation, Binay said just approached the American serviceman to thank him for his help.
