Twitterverse Tests Editing Skills on He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named's Face
Cliche as it may go, a picture paints a thousand words and having your face plastered all over the Internet creates a wave of publicity—whether bad or good. Senator Bong Go gets a lot of attention every time he stands (or sits) alongside President Rodrigo Duterte, one of the most photographed Filipino officials for obvious reasons.
As a solution, the newest Twitter hashtag was born on the morning of November 13: #EditOutBongGoChallenge, where people are either cropping out or putting fun stickers on the face of the presidential assistant-turned-senator.
"Kim, there's people that are dying'"
We're not sure if Elmo is amused.
Dogs are man's best friend. Or...
Spot the difference?
He can also be a Krusty the Clown stand-in.
You can never have too many clowns.
He who shall not be named.
Dementor reference is on point.
This isn't the first time that Go made the headlines for his penchant for photo ops. He was called a "selfie savant" by The Washington Post for snapping pictures of himself with just about every world leader in a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Manila on November 13, 2017. This was done "with or without their permission," the American daily newspaper said; and Go posted a whole Facebook album of his selfies with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, then Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, then Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, and more.
Fast forward to x years later, and the selfie king is doing it again. Except this time, people aren't really as amused.
