(SPOT.ph) It’s tough to be Janet Napoles these days. In just a matter of weeks, her life has taken a 180-degree turn. She went from calling the shots to being afraid of getting shot. Well, what else do you expect when you’re accused of being the so-called "mastermind of the pork barrel scam"?
In the spirit of ironic Pinoy humor, we picked some interesting memes that show how the public sees Napoles. We gotta warn you, the images aren’t pretty. Only time will tell if Napoles will get out of this fix or not.
