Self-described online journalist and political pundit Even Demata was recently in hot water for posting a joke video of a singing elderly woman, whom he referred to as an alleged member of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF).
The caption reads, “Isang babaeng BIFF nahuli ng militar isinalang sa interogasyon at bigla nalang kumanta nagulat ang mga interrogators at pinakawalan agad, hahaha… joke lang po.” (A female member of the BIFF caught by the military and subjected to interrogation suddenly began singing, surprising the interrogators who immediately released her. Hahaha…just kidding).
The video post’s top comments were comprised of negative reactions from Demata’s fans, who criticized the Internet personality for seemingly humiliating the old woman. Screenshots of the comments can be found below.
Yet despite the flak Demata received for posting the video with a provocative caption, several Facebook users seemed to have enjoyed it.
Demata’s claim to fame was a scathing and viral criticism of Wowowee’s Willie Revillame. He was also involved in the spread of a graphic video, allegedly taken during the Mamasapono incident.
