A netizen by the name of Jay Ar Castillo Dinglasan, also known by the alias “Shaboy” claims that he “trolled” Maria Ressa, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rappler. Apparently, he pretended that he had solid evidence that could take down President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Facebook Messenger if it was released to the public.
In his post, he said that Rappler is always writing about news that is against the president and he said he’s tired of it.
He shared a screenshot of what seems to be their dialogue.
“Ma’am kayo po ba yung sa Rappler diba ? Shaboy nga pala, may Isisiwalat sana ako actual picture ng pagbaril ni Duterte sa isang kawatan , pero gusto ko sana itago nyo pangalan ko , send ko po sayo?” said “Shaboy.”
At first, he asked if she was really the CEO of Rappler. After that, Dinglasan said that he has a picture of the President gunning down a criminal.
Just like any journalist, Ressa said that she’ll make sure that everything will be ok.
After that, Dinglasan sent a screenshot from the popular app, Duterte Fighting Crime, a game where the president, you guessed it, shoots down criminals.
The post has already garnered 2,525 shares and 3.5K reactions and it looks like it’s still going on.
Of course, netizens were split with the post and there are some who are saying that this is most probably edited by the netizen. One of them even said that the typographical error of using spaces before closing with a punctuation is a dead giveaway. Although, they did say that it’s still “Funny as Hell.”
