Embattled Senator Jiggoy Estrada flew off to the land of the free over the weekend. What’s the interwebs would do, but write about it? That’s exactly what “So What’s News” site did when it published, “Jinggoy Estrada Arrested After Trying to Smuggle Money Inside His Breasts to U.S.“.
Yep, as you can imagine, the news went around the InterWebs!
Rappler picked it up, and had their own witty response: “Jinggoy issues statement after ‘arrest’ in U.S.” (In case you missed it: note the URL to that).
The major newsies around got to it…and Senator Estrada took it seriously:
“My staff just called me at 5:00am to inform me that there is an article circulating in Facebook that i have been arrested in the US for bringing in huge amount of [US dollars.] That is absolutely NOT TRUE. I’ve been seen by a number of Filipinos and were happy to see me and even took pics of me. That story is incredible to say the least,” he said in a statement.
Guess that staffer no longer has a job.
What does the fox say?
