Mocha Uson Apologizes after Saying Mayon Volcano is in Naga City

Wednesday, January 24th, Mocha Uson apologized to netizens after stating over Facebook live that the Mayon Volcano was in Naga.

Uson originally shared a video explaining the controversy around her award and her decision to return it, “Ako na ang nag-aalok naibalik yung award kasi sobra na po ang pagbubully nang ilang Thomasians kay President Henry Tenedero [ng UST Alumni Association].”

Uson diverted the problem to be that other people are using her award “Para takpan ang mas mahalagang isyu…isyu ng Dengvaxia…ng pagtanggap ni Senator Drilon ng pera galing kay Napoles at yung pinaka halaga pa yan na nangyayari sa Naga, yan nang pag-aalburoto ng Mayon.”

Uson then posts an apology video correcting herself, “Pasensya na po! Inaamin ko po na nagkamili ako. Nakakatawa! Napakaliit na isyu, ginagamit na headline pero pagdating sa Dengvaxia tahimik kayo.

She tells her supporters, “Asahan nyo na tayo ay dudumugin ng mga pambabash, panlalait, [at] pan-alipusta dahil sa napakaliit na pagkakamali na hindi ko naman sinasadya.”

#Naga has been trending over social media with Bicolano actor, Enchong Dee, tweeted: “Makauwi nga sa probinsya ko…balita ko may bago kaming bulkan. #Naga City.

And Twitter user @rvrntyza postedMayon Volcano is not in Naga. Naga is not even in the same province as Mayon. If you’re gonna use us as an excuse to curve the issues thrown at you, the least you can do is have your facts straight. Thanks for caring, but please, go away and never come back.

Albay Rep. Joey Sarte Salceda even posted in Facebook, “Si Mayon nag-evacuate, din,” with some people joking, “Cong. pakibalik po ang Mayon sa Albay. She may be dangerous but it’s the pride of Albay! Please ibalik mo siya!
