Kris Aquino vs. Mocha Uson: Pick Your Fighter

Bring out the popcorn.
Comments

Since yesterday, Kris Aquino’s passionate defense of her father has been making the rounds on social media. She called out PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson for comparing President Duterte’s controversial SoKor Kiss to a video of Ninoy Aquino being kissed by two women on an airplane, just before he was assassinated.

“This is a direct challenge to you. Face me. Face me anywhere. Text me—you can find the number, ang dali. Name the place, name the location. Let’s carry it live. Bring all your followers; I can stand alone,” Kris said.

Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has since apologized for the incident but Uson has refused to back down, saying, “Ms. Aquino, this is not about you.”

Kris Aquino has reiterated that it is about her, since Mocha attacked her parents (duh), but she has also decided to take the high road and withdraw her challenge. That said, it's still worth looking at each contender's stats, in honor of the epic verbal showdown that could have been. OR IS IT STILL POSSIBLE.
