ACT-CIS party-list Rep. Eric Yap insulted Pinoy Ako blogger Jover Laurio’s physical appearance after the latter called him out over the naming of a Benguet hospital building after him.
“Iisa lang ang tama sa impormasyon na pinost niya, kung saan meron dun na mukha niya na ipinipakita niya ano ang itsura ng Covid kung ito ay magiging tao,” the chair of the House appropriations panel said.
Yap made his remarks at the start of the budget briefing of the Office of the President.
He said Laurio had made a posted on her blog asking why a hospital laboratory was named after him.
“Tinatanong niya kung pera ko raw ba yun? Unang-una, ang sagot ko, opo, pera ko yun, dinonate ko,” he said.
But Yap said he was not aware that the Benguet hospital would name the facility for him out of gratitude.
The blogger wrote: “Yung gusto mong tanggalin ang pangalan ni Ninoy Aquino sa NAIA, tapos yung isang building pinangalan sa ‘yo kahit buhay ka pa?”
Yap earlier filed a bill to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to “Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas.”
