The giant social media network Facebook has made another appalling move after it took down another post that criticized President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and his actions.
On June 5, Sunday, two Filipino journalists posted on both Twitter and Facebook claiming that the Facebook page of the Economic Journalists Association of the Philippines (EJAP) was taken down after the group released a statement condemning Duterte's remarks on media killings.
Journalist Inday Espina-Varona, said that the EJAP’s facebook page has gone missing after releasing a statement regarding Mayor Duterte's pronouncemet on media. Espina-Varona also reposted the EJAP statement on her own Facebook account.
"We in EJAP find [Duterte's] pronouncement inappropriate, most specially for someone of his stature who's supposed to defend the rule of law," the group said.
It can be recalled that the President-elect earlier said that being a journalist does not exempt him or her from being assassinated, especially if he or she is a son of a bitch.
