Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson is once again on the hot seat for her latest gaffe where she reportedly posted another dubious news item.
Uson apparently tried to take a jab at opposition politicians who visited 17-year-old Kian delos Santos’ wake by posting a link to the Inquirer article, “‘Best intel cop’ killed during third drug bust of the day.”
Meanwhile, her caption called out Vice President Leni Robredo and Senators Bam Aquino, Antonio Trillanes IV, and Risa Hontiveros to also find time to visit the fallen police officer.
But Uson’s move backfired as it turned out that the story was actually published a year ago.
This comes after she posted a controversial statement on the “difference” between murder and the killing of criminals.
Her erroneous post has since been deleted but it was too late since it already triggered angry netizens to come up with the #FireMocha hashtag which trended on Twitter. Here are some of the tweets:
Just to make things clear
She’s an award-winning employee
Divisiveness at its finest

Some netizens just like to tell it like it is
How did this happen?
A slap to journalism
