Hugot Is Everywhere: The Best Moments from #WPSHugot
On July 12, 2016, the United Nations Arbitral Tribunal declared that the Philippines won its arbitration case against China over the West Philippine Sea. This ruling is a victory for the Philippines and its neighboring countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and Taiwan.
Despite its seriousness, Filipino netizens have decided to inject some fun into the matter by coming up with memes on social media, such as #WPSHugot. Yes, guys. hugot truly is everywhere.
#WPSHugot is a topic on Twitter containing hugot lines and memes about the ruling on West Philippine Sea, which was started by GMA-7 news reporters Tina Panganiban Perez, Lei Alviz, and Mav Gonzales.
It just goes to show that no matter the topic, Filipinos can always find the funny side of things—and come up with such amazing witticisms to boot. Here are some of the best tweets from this topic:
