In his latest post though, he said that it was not him, but the caption was made by an intern.

"I apologize for the earlier confusing post on our celebration of Lapu-lapu’s victory in Mactan 500 years ago. An intern in our social media team posted the caption to our meme without first clearing it. Again, my sincerest apologies to our Cebuano countrymen and to all Filipinos."
