Edwin Sallan of InterkAsyon.com reports that Georgina Wilson (@ilovegeorgina) tweet saying that "anyone that votes for Erap is a f***ing idiot" drew a scathing response from former President Joseph Estrada's son Jake Ejercito (@unoemilio).
According to the report, Wilson's tweet-which has since been deleted-said: "ugh i hate politics - but I only have one thing to say: Anyone that votes for Erap is a f***ing idiot." In response, Ejercito tweeted: "Ms. Wilson, social media might be a free world but I think it’s quite irresponsible to express such an opinion unless you are well-versed with the current situation of the city of Manila and how the present local administration has failed to handle it. Moreover, to call 325,288 Manileños, including the 9.4 million Filipinos who voted for him in 2010, 'fucking idiots' is harsh and truly uncalled for. Don't hate without knowing the facts."
Other Pinoy Twitter users immediately took sides. Some slammed Ejercito, while others pointed out that Wilson shouldn’t say such things because her own boyfriend Borgy Manotoc’s family experienced political upheavals, too. Wilson didn’t reply to Ejercito’s tweet and Ejercito didn’t post additional tweets about the matter.
