“I think singer and dancer Margaux “Mocha” Uson’s appointment as board member of the Movie and Television Review Classification Board (MTRCB) is an acceptable move by the current administration as long as she doesn’t violate any of our constitution and according to Presidential Decree, Sec. 2, the qualifications to be a board member of MTRCB shall be a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, not less than 21 years of age and of good moral character and standing in the community; this is very clear that she’s fit to be in this work since she’s a natural-born, full-ﬂedged Filipino and above all, willing to serve voluntarily without any payback. In addition, the capability to serve must not be judged by the kind of function/job she has before.”

“I find it amusing and annoying. It proves three things: (1) that you just need the right connections to climb your way to the top (or in this case, be a Rated SPG Dutertroll Warlord HAHAHA); (2) Duterte broke his promise of not appointing friends and supporters as a gesture of “returning the favor”. Bottomline, disappointed. Either way, for someone who has tutorials on how to put a condom using your mouth, I don’t think she’s ft to tell kids what to watch and what not to watch.”

“I honestly don’t think she deserves it. I don’t even know why she got that spot. They say it’s because she’s famous but most people didn’t even know who she was until the elections. She didn’t even do anything / didn’t do a good job as the MMFF ambassador. I doubt she’d be anything but mediocre as a board member.”
Aletheia C. Villanueva, English Literature IV
