In a Twitter post, the controversial Angat Buhay New Government (@NewGovOrgABF) released an alleged statement from outgoing vice president Leni Robredo about the marred graduation conflict between the Church of God and blogger Sass Sasot on Friday, June 3, at the graduation ceremony of Southern Philippines Institute of Science and Technology (SPIST).


In the photo quote, Robredo asserts that although she supports the LGBTQ+ community, the Church of God was justified in blocking Sasot’s speech, as the blogger is a known Marcos supporter and a fake-news peddler. The same pubmat claims affiliation with the Office of the Vice President.

This is false.

The facts: VP Robredo has not issued any statement about the incident between Sass Sasot and the Church of God.

She has since denied any connections or affiliations with Twitter user Angat Buhay New Government (@NewGovOrgABF).
