A member of the UPLB’s University Student Council said on Apolinario Mabini’s 150th birthday that she doesn’t know who the Filipino hero is, generating a buzz online.
“Who’s Mabini?” The third year Veterinary Medicine student posted on her Facebook wall Wednesday night.
As expected, she immediately received tons of flak as her post was flooded by comments, mostly coming from UPLB students who were insulted by her great ignorance.
“Student council ka pa man din pagkatapos hindi mo kilala si Mabini!” Said one disturbed student.
“Pagasa ng bayan, ganyang ka-tanga?” Posted another exasperated schooler. “Shame! SMH!”
The UPLB Peerspective was informed by a source later on that the USC Councilor is a Fil-American; she was born and raised in Virginia (United States) before returning to the Philippines to study VetMed.
She is also a champion skater, according to the source. The source added that whrn UPLB hosted the General Assembly of Student Councils, the USC Councilor said “there are beggars and pulubis” in the Student Union Building.
As of posting time, the said post was already removed but sources reached the UPLB Peerspective to hand out screenshots.
Mabini, for idiots, is a Filipino revolutionary. He was born on July 23, 1864 in Tanauan, Batangas. For more, IGMG! [P!]
