Netizens on Fashion Pulis had mixed reactions over the video and the statement from the Ilocos Norte tourism office:
“Imposible d mo alam girl. ano yan tatangap ka lng pera d mo inaalam kng san galing.”
“May common friend kami ni Moira. Couple of days before the said event, that friend tagged Moira when she posted the poster which indicates the events for the ‘Marcos 101’. At nakasulat po doon sa itaas ng poster ang katagang ‘MARCOS 101’ kaya malabong hindi niya alam.”
“Nako Moira okay na yung sinabi nyang "for ilocanos" kaya sya nag perfom sana di nalang nya sinabing hindi nya alam na related sa Marcos ang event. Hello? Pwede bang di nya alam prior to accepting the offer or even prior to going there”
“bakit kasi Marcos Fest name ng ‘gig’ niyo? Pano na mga ilokano na hindi naman maka-marcos pero proud ilokano? and gusto niyo wag mag-play politics si moira? mejo malabo.”
“Alangan mag tantrums si Moira sa stage? Malamang nagpaka-professional nalang sya. Mali ang information na naka-rating sa kanya.”
