After her swipe at his livelihood, Ogie Diaz slams Mocha Uson’s: ‘Ikinabubuhay mo fake news’
Talent manager and comedian Ogie Diaz took a swipe at Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) deputy administrator Esther Margaux “Mocha” Uson once more over the latter’s work in public office.
Diaz has recently been giving “constructive criticisms” to Uson to correct her, clarifying that he has no personal resentment toward the latter, via his YouTube channel on March 5.
In his latest tweet, Diaz called out Uson after she dismissed the talent manager’s comments as mere “tsismis” (gossip) and that he should visit the OWWA office to see Uson’s work.
“Marami po ang nag memessage sa akin patungkol sa banat ni OGIE DIAZ sa akin. Hayaan niyo na po siya. Part ng trabaho niya ang gumawa ng tsismis, yan ang kinabubuhay niya, kaya naiintindihan ko po siya,” Uson said via Twitter on March 9.
(Lots of people have been messaging me about Ogie Diaz’s remarks about me. Let him be. It is part of his job to create gossip; that is how he earns a living so I understand him.)
“Kung gusto niya malaman ginagawa natin sa OWWA pwede po siya magpunta sa office,” she added.
(If he wants to know what we do at OWWA, he can go to the office.)
Diaz posted his reply to Uson’s remark yesterday, March 10, in which he jested: “Ganun ba? So ikinabubuhay mo naman ang tagapagpalaganap ng fake news?”
(Is that so? So how about you, you earn a living as a someone who spreads fake news.)
Ganun ba? So ikinabubuhay mo naman ang tagapagpalaganap ng fake news?😜 https://t.co/96CCs3MuJZ

Uson’s tweet came after Diaz challenged her to present data on what she has done to help Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) because of her remarks against ABS-CBN regarding the franchise renewal issue. He also called out Uson for spreading misinformation after the OWWA deputy director said ABS-CBN should “stick to the facts.”
Before becoming the OWWA deputy director, Uson was the former Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) assistant secretary. Uson was appointed to her current post last September, less than a year after she supposedly resigned from PCOO.
Her resignation came after she drew controversy for her jingle on federalism, called Pepedederalismo, which she made with blogger-friend Drew Olivar. Although Malacañang officials insist that Uson resigned, INQUIRER.net has learned from a source privy to the information that she was fired. JB
