Celine Pialago, MMDA spokesperson trended online after she revealed her thoughts about the burial of Baby River and the grief of the baby's mom, political detainee Reina Mae Nasino.
She said that the way supporters are giving their support to Nasino was like making it a "drama serye."
She also said that people should know what Nasino was like before they try to say things about her.
This garnered a lot of reactions from the online world, which was why her name took the top spot on Twitter.
The post that became controversial was:
"Happy Sunday everyone! Walang kinalaman sa traffic pero sa tingin ko kailangan kong gamitin ang boses ko bilang isang Pilipino sa usapin na ito. Hindi lahat ng inang nakakulong ay nakapunta sa libing ng kanyang anak. Kaya yung mga sumisimpatya kay Reina Mae Nasino, pag aralan niyo mabuti ang dahilan bakit siya nakulong at kilalanin niyong mabuti kung sino siya sa lipunan. Masyado ninyong ginagawang pang drama serye sa hapon ang paghihinagpis niya. Tigilan niyo!"
