MANILA, Philippines – "Nothing worse than a Binay ad," one user tweeted.
Part of his spiel goes: “Masakit, malupit, pagkatao ay minamaliit." (Painful, cruel, my person is belittled.)
As the ad played on national television, some went on Twitter to share their thoughts on the Vice President's one-minute ad.

Rappler searched for "binay ad" comments on Twitter and as of this writing, results showed similar tweets, despite best efforts to look for positive feedback. (If you spot any, send us a message on Facebook!) Filipinos on Twitter are not amused with the Vice President's message.
This isn't the first online bashing Binay has faced – the last one being, on account on his recent trip to the University of the Philippines Los Baños, where students went from confronting him in person to criticizing him online.
The trending #BinayVisitsUPLB transformed into the satire #BinayBwisitsUPLB as netizens called him out for his less than satisfactory answers to their questions during the “Forum on Governance, Transparency and Social Transformation.”
Binay also had his own version of the State of the Nation Address for 2015, which he tagged as the "True State of the Nation," but netizens thought Aquino's version was more truthful.
