GMA News Online reports that on April 1, the group called Filipino Freethinkers (FF) awarded Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III the "Bigot of the Year" title. As such, in a ceremony held at the group’s "R.S.S. (Reason, Science & Secularism) Forum" in UP-Ayala Land Technohub, the organizers symbolically (and ironically) donated ₱10,000 to the Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) in the name of the "staunch RH Bill oppositor." Sotto was not present at the event.

Sotto, according to the GMA News Online report, was named the winner of the controversial award based on the result of an online poll on the FF website. The report noted: "GMA News Online tried to get Sotto's reaction via SMS but the senator would not reply."
