Risa Hontiveros Responds Netizen Who Criticized Her SONA Outfit
RISA HONTIVEROS – Senator Risa Hontiveros slammed the netizen who criticized her SONA 2019 outfit.
On July 22, Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte gave his 4th State of the Nations Address speech at the Batasang Pambansa.
This event was attended by all the politicians and head of all the government departments.
All of the government employees groomed themselves and wore their best Filipiñana.
Meanwhile, Imee Marcos’ Mak Tumang gown elicited mixed reactions from the netizens.
Oppositionist Senator Risa Hontiveros also got an ugly remark from a netizen after seeing her photo with her fellow senators.
The Twitter user named Carlo Malanzo told the politician to “dress appropriately” for Duterte’s SONA. He also uploaded the photo on the post.
The author of “Bawal Bastos” law was wearing a barong dress made of piña with a high slit on the side.
Risa Hontiveros lamented on the netizen’s post. She retweeted the basher’s post and said: “Stop telling women how to dress.”
The politician was referring to her “Bawal Bastos Law” that seeks to impose penalties to people who give “sexist” remarks.
Netizens aired their thoughts and opinions on the reaction of the senator. Here are some of their comments on the post:
@Bacci3: “Madam Senator, we are not telling women how to dress. We are telling you, and just you alone, how to dress & behave properly and decently in public.”
@clawclaw87: “We are not telling a woman how to dress, we are telling a SENATOR how to dress appropriately.”
@defixiones666: “Performance ang usapan dito and she did deliver and will deliver more.”
