We're living in a world where a man who gained infamy for hurling expletives and raising the middle finger at protesters has become a full-blown meme.
Attorney Lorenzo "Larry" Gadon, the man behind former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno's impeachment, went from being on the verge of disbarment for violating the ethical code to being glorified as a troll. Recently, several videos have circulated online of him giving students and their respective schools his "Hindi mga bobo" certification. Some even call it the Atty. Larry Gadon challenge. Yikes.
The official student publication of one of the featured universities, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas, explained Gadon's appearance that spawned majority of the viral clips.
Still, it didn't stop the proliferation of these bizarre shout-outs from the outspoken Duterte supporter. The Filipino meme culture has become out-of-this-world—and not in a good way!
Not everyone is riding the hype train, though. Good riddance.
