Netizen labels Robredo as ‘BOBA’ for her remarks on malnutrition during her own radio show

The radio show of Vice President Leni Robredo aired its pilot episode last May 14 and one of topics that were discussed was about malnutrition.


Robredo said it is extreme poverty that causes malnutrition.

“Samakatiwd, at ito an gaming napagtanto at naging konklusyon, base na din sa aming walang kapagurang paglilibot sa mga lugar na talamak ang unemployed at ito yung mga poorest of the poor, ang dahilan ng malnourishment ay extreme poverty,” Robredo exclaimed

This remark from the VP has gained reactions from netizens, and one social media blogger under the name Mamshies criticized her by pointing out the real definition of malnutrition.

“BISErbisyong Leni on Malnutrition: Extreme poverty is the cause of malnutrition. BOBA ka talaga, eto talaga ang definition ng malnutrition: lack of proper nutrition caused by not having enough to eat, not eating enough of the right things, or being unable to use the food that one does eat,” said Mamshies in their Facebook post.

Below is Mamshies' Facbook post:

Siguro naman marunong ka umintindi ng English noh?

Yung kakilala kong mayaman may malnutrition

The social media page also said that the elites they know calls malnutrition by eating in a fastfood.

On the other hand, another netizen named Mark Lopez also commented on Robredo’s statement about malnutrition.

“Over all reaction: SANABABEACH. Di nga madame Leni, ang matinding kahirapan ang may sala ng malnutrition? Paano na yung mga malnourished sa Forbes and Dasma. Tsaka sa Ayala Alabang? Bakit naman bias ka sa mahihirap madam?” said Lopez in his Facebook post.

First takeaway from Leni in her radio program currently on air --

"Linggo linggo nag iikot kami sa mga lugar na tinuturing nating mga pinaka liblib at mahirap. At sa aming kaka ikot dito sa mga lugar na ito, ang nakakamanghang napansin namin na katangi tangi ay madaming mga bata na malnourished at stunted ang paglaki." (Reaction: 😳)

"At dahil jan, nag obserba kami at pinag aralan ng husto at talagang hinalukay namin yang lugar ng mga mahihirap at napag alaman namin na karamihan sa kanila ay walng trabaho." (Reaction: 😲😲😲)

"Samakatwid, at ito ang ang aming napagtanto at naging konklusyon, base na din sa aming walang kapagurang paglilibot sa mga lugar na talamak ang unemployed at ito ung mga poorest of the poor --

ang dahilan ng malnourishment ay extreme poverty!"

Over all reaction: 🙀🙀🙀 SANABABEACH!!! Di nga madame Leni, ang matinding kahirapan ang may sala ng malnutrition?!!! HOMAYGADD!!!😱😱😱

Dioskopups! Pano na yung mga malnourished sa Forbes and Dasma. Tsaka sa Ayala Alabang? 😬😬😬 Bakit naman may bias ka sa mahihirap madame? You mean porke't mayaman at can afford, hindi na sya puede maging malnourished? Talagang sa masusi mong pag aaral, mahihirap lang talaga ang puede maging malnourished???
