Mocha Uson, newly appointed assistant secretary for social media of the Presidential Communications Operations Office, has vowed to do better in her new assignment in the Palace.
This after Uson reacted to the tweets of Bb Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon who earlier commented on her appointment.
De Leon said: “Biased and disrespectful. She insults those who are against her. I’m not for her, I’m not for the other side (whatever that may be). I love my country so it breaks my heart to know someone like her got a position in the govt.”
The daughter of actors Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong then was bashed by supporters of Uson for her views on appointment.
But Uson took De Leon’s comments on a positive manner.
“Sorry po Bb. Pilipinas. I’ll take note po of your tweets at pagbubutihin ko po para sa bayan at para sayo po,” said Uson.
De Leon then ended the issue involving her reaction to Uson’s appointment.
“It proves that we can accept each other’s opinions & differences and still let peace, democracy, and love for country prevail. It is done,” the beauty queen from Las Piñas said.
Despite this, De Leon vowed to remain vocal about controversial issues.
“I’m proud to wear the sash that says ‘Philippines’ but I hope that change will come. And I hope that I can use my voice and my platform to be part of that change,” De Leon wrote on Twitter.
De Leon, 23, will represent the Philippines in the Miss International 2017 beauty pageant in Japan later this year.
