Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte is once again the center of controversies and hate in the social media for recently using her political campaign bags with her name on it “Joy ng Bayan”.

This has triggered a lot of netizens and posted bashes left and right against her in social media.

“Naghanap lang po kami ng supot sa bodega namin. At ‘yan po ay natira sa kampanya. Lahat po ng supot na nakita namin sa bodega ay ginamit na po natin, dahil nais lang po natin mapababa ang health kit sa lalong madaling panahon,” said Belmonte in an interview from DZMM radio.

“Sa lahat po ng na-upset doon, ako po’y humihingi ng paumanhin. Sorry to those na-offend,” Belmonte added

Mayor Belmonte, daughter of former QC Rep. Sonny Belmonte was mauled on Twitter for taking advantage of the pandemic crisis by distributing health kits with her name “Joy ng Bayan” bags unlike other mayors from other cities like Vico Sotto from Pasig and Marcy Teodoro, were more sensible and used neutral bags.

The mayor earned nothing but hate and bashes from the netizens which angered them instead of giving a relief pack to her constituents she has the nerve to politicize the situation. Here are some of the social media comments of the netizens:

Finally, it seems the bashing has knocked into Belmontes senses as her staff has started using clear, unmarked plastic bags for donations.

Aside from the “Joy ng Bayan” embarrassment, Belmonte was also condemned for her callous remarks that she insisted were taken out of context.
