Ogie Diaz calls out Mocha Uson for using vlog to insult Cynthia Patag
Ogie Diaz called out Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson for allowing social media personality Andrew “Drew” Olivar to use her platform to swear at actress Cynthia Patag.
The comedian also asked for Uson’s side on the Commission on Audit’s (COA) recommendation to file charges against the PCOO for P38 million worth of “deficient” disbursements for the 2017 Asean Summit.
Sharing a clip of the Facebook Live video Uson uploaded in her page, Diaz pointed out that Asec. Uson should not allow the use of swear words in her platform, particularly in statements that degrade women.
Ewan ko kung me katungkulan sa gobyerno yung bading, pero noon pa, image na niya yung magmura nang magmura. Baka nga…
“Kay Ateng Mocha, sana, lagi mong isaksak sa kukote mo na sinusuwelduhan ka ng taumbayan,” wrote Diaz in a Facebook post yesterday, July 22. “Hindi ka dapat maging troublemaker, bagkus maging peacemaker ka.”
(To Miss Mocha, I hope you’ll always remember that your salary is paid by the Filipino people. [Because of this] you should not be a troublemaker; instead, you should be a peacemaker.)
He added, “Pero baka sabihin nung ibang makakapanood ng video, ikaw pa talaga ang nagtawa nang marinig mo ang salitang “put-“… Pag napagnilay-nilay mo na, gusto ko lang sabihin sa yo, nariyan ka sa gobyerno para iangat ang antas ng kababaihan.”
(But people who watched this video may say that you really are the one who laughed when you heard the word “b*tch”… After you reflect on it, I just want to tell you that you are in the government to uplift women’s social standing.)
“Gawin mong makatuturan ang iyong posisyon para saluduhan ka hindi lang ng mga ka-DDS, kundi ng mas marami pang hindi ka-DDS,” he advised.
(Give importance to your position so that you will be praised not just by Diehard Duterte Supporters (DDS), but also more of those who aren’t.)
“Sa palagay mo, yang ganyang pampo-provoke n’yo kay Ateng Gay ay pwede mong maisama sa mga naging accomplishment mo bukod sa pagsama-sama at pagbuntot-buntot sa Pangulo?” the comedian continued his tirade.
(Do you think provoking Miss Gay could be included in the list of your accomplishments aside from joining and tailing the President?)
Diaz then shifted his thoughts to the COA issue the PCOO is currently entangled with. The comedian asked Mocha to explain her and the PCOO’s side.
“Direktang may kinalaman ang isyu sa work mo sa PCOO, Ateng Mocha. Baka madamay ka, i-clear mo, Ateng, para mas maintindihan naman ng mga taxpayers na hindi ka involved sa anomalya o inosente ka sa bilyong pisong halagang kinukuwestiyon ng PCOO,” Diaz wrote.
“Pag na-explain mo namang maigi ang tungkol sa isyu, pwede mo namang isali ito sa accomplishment mo bilang Asec ng PCOO. At ituring mong isang mabigat na accomplishment na ito.”
(Your work is directly involved in the PCOO issue, Miss Mocha. You might be implicated, you have to clarify so that the taxpayers will understand that you are not involved or that you are innocent in the billions of pesos that the PCOO is being questioned about. If you are able to explain the issue well, you may include this in the list of your accomplishments as PCOO Asec. And you may consider this as an important accomplishment.)
The comedian also noted that he is ready to be bashed by Uson’s and President Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters for expressing his views. He noted that he has not held back on criticizing previous administrations and encouraged supporters of the present administration to speak up on corruption in the government.
Uson posted the controversial live video on Friday, July 20. Aside from Olivar, she is joined by Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles.

After using derogatory words against Patag, the trio also slammed Senator Franklin Drilon for his alleged habitual sleeping in the Senate: “Si Drilon.. oo tulog ng tulog di ba. Lagyan na lang talaga ng ataul. [laughs] Dapat magdala kayo ng karpintero dun sa Senado, tapos habang natutulog, may pumupukpok na dun, lagyan na ng lapida dun [laughs].”
(Drilon… yes, he keeps on sleeping right. Really [someone] should put a coffin. You should bring a carpenter in the Senate [so that] while he is sleeping, there is someone is hammering there, provide [him] a tombstone there.) NVG
