Hot on Spot: Netizens start meme on Claudine & Raymart vs. Mon Tulfo NAIA 3 brawl picks user-generated creations for the meme of the moment.
Published on: May 8, 2012 - 9:00am

( Who would have thought that a journalist known for being a tough guy would figure in a rumble with an actor who had previously dabbled in action films and an actress who used to be tagged as a soap opera queen? But that's exactly what happened last Sunday, May 6, when Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist and TV5 host Ramon Tulfo and actor Raymart Santiago reportedly exchanged blows at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's Terminal 3 because Tulfo had been taking photos of Barretto (Santiago's wife, in case you didn't or still don't know by now) while she berated an airline's employee. A video of the incident posted by an eyewitness on YouTube shows that Barretto and Santiago's companions also joined the ruckus.


At this point, it is not really clear what happened, as both parties claim to have been the recipients of the first blow. As expected, nobody admits to starting the fight, which looked more like a WWE melee. But unlike the staged WWE smackdowns, this one was all too real.


Of course, netizens have weighed in on the subject. Some have blogged about it, commented on it, tweeted about it, and referred to it in their Facebook statuses. Then, there are those who have started a graphics meme out of it. Naturally, we've gathered some of the most provocative ones. Click on the illustration below to see more user-generated creations.

    Tell me, is there an airline in the world that hasn't been delayed or hasn't lost or delayed the arrival of luggage? When you travel, you can expect these things to happen. Those who never want to experience these normal air travel problems can just go ahead and buy their own plane. Konting diperensya lang, magwawala ka? No one and nothing can dictate how a person reacts to an unfortunate situation. Bakit, bibilis ba ang pagdating ng luggage kung magwawala ka sa ground staff? Bitbit ba ng ground staff yung maleta? Hirap kasi sa mga feeling celebrity (na laos naman), akala lahat dapat lumuhod sa kanila.

    just a thought... if one said that they had been kicked at or been "karate chopped" or received a blow, and this person complained of aches and pains and physical injury because of this - would one still have the energy to go full rambo, charge the opponent , and deliver several blows to the its aggressor?

    secondly, the aggressor is already down on the floor - as a person with so called breeding, wouldn't you just stop and step back, and let the security take it from there? isn't this what you call public lynching?

    Nakalimutan na yung totoong issue which is Cebu Pacific's inefficiency! SOP ang mag off load? Raymart said the plane was not even full. Maraming bakante. CebuPac is sad daw na nadamay sila sa issue nila Claudine when they are the MAIN reason bakit nagkaroon ng rambulan. Hay, how can we have more fun in the Philippines kung palpak ang airlines natin.

    I would like to attend "Thrilla in NAIA" please. I'd be coming from Scarborough but I'd like all my luggage in hand carry (no check-in). Thank you Cebu Pacific for sponsoring the fight - and MY flight.
