Guinness World Records Reacts to Claim of UniTeam Supporters
Guinness World Records junked the claim of some UniTeam supporters that the world’s “longest motorcade” was held to show support for former Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr.
The Election 2022 in the Philippines is fast-approaching. Both local and national elections are set to be held on May 9 and the candidates are currently busy campaigning to the people and reaching as many Filipinos as they can before the campaign period is over.
Aside from grand campaign rallies, debates and interviews of the presidential candidates are also happening. There were also previous debates that gathered the vice-presidential and senatorial aspirants. Several issues were tackled revealing the standpoints of the candidates.
Several candidates raised the issue of the spread of fake news and disinformation on social media platforms. They called on the people to help fight the spread of wrong information.
Recently, Guinness World Records reacted to a claim of the supporters of an election tandem on social media. The supporters of UniTeam, the tandem of former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, claimed that the “world’s longest motorcade” was held for Marcos Jr.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the social media post did not mention when the alleged caravan took place but the photos stated that it happened in Ilocos Norte, the bailiwick of the Marcoses. It was posted on the Facebook page “Bbm-Sara UniTeam Headquarters Northern Luzon, Crown Legacy Hotel Baguio”.
In a post dated March 26, Guinness World Records commented, “This information is incorrect”. The said comment elicited several laughing and heart emojis.
Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr.’s presidential bid is undeniably controversial. It sparked the issues surrounding the regime of his late father, their family’s alleged ill-gotten wealth, and the resurfacing of his tax charges and his family’s alleged unpaid estate tax.
