Mocha Uson's appointment as a board member of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has been a subject of criticism. One of such critics is actress turned host G Tongi who is now based in the US.
During a recently held meet and greet with Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, G Tongi who was representing LA18 where she hosts Kababayan Today, questioned Mocha's MTRCB appointment.
She asked Andanar:
"I’d like to talk about the Uson Blog, the Mocha Uson Blog. So, I saw an interview of yours that said she has qualifications for her new posting in MTRCB."

"Could you elaborate what kind of qualifications she has for this new position, because she is a s*x blogger. And I’m sorry I don’t feel like… and among with many others, don’t feel that her qualification is enough."
Andanar answered and stated:
"With Mocha Uson, we all know that Mocha Uson is an entertainer, she’s a singer, she’s a songwriter, and a solid supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, and one of the biggest bloggers now in town, or in the Philippines with around 4 million followers."
"President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was elected into office because we have the trust and confidence with this president to run our country. Mocha Uson is a choice of the President. So, para sa akin po, let’s just respect the decision of the President."

After the question has been answered, a blogger named "Maharlika" from Los Angeles defended Mocha and said:
“Wala pong issue, ang sa akin po dito ay kung meron tayong mga bugok na congressman, na ang iba diyan ay walang qualifications, bakit hindi natin pagbigyan ang isang Mocha Uson na gustong maglingkod sa ating bayan?”
The crowd responded with applause after Maharlika's statement.
