This is line with the controversial campaign of Uson about Federalism. Their previous promotional video went controversial because of the “malaswa” content.

In a lecture series with vlogger Drew Olivar which the Asec. posted on her blog they used sign language.

They intended to deliver their message to those Filipinos who are deaf. On the other hand, Aiko Melendez saw it as an offending act towards persons with disabilities (PWD).

Based on the article published in Abante, the actress ranted about this on Facebook. Aiko apparently had enough of Uson‘s style of promoting Federalism to Filipinos.

She also said that she knows a lot of PWDs who are more fit to their position in the government.

Aiko Melendez also stressed out that she is a supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte but people like Mocha Uson and Drew Olivar were the ones who will destroy his.

In line with this, the actress demanded a public apology from them. She even cited the RA 9442 Revised Magna Carta for PWDs that prohibits people to disgrace those with disabilities.

Here is the post of Aiko Melendez, based on the report:

“Sukdulan to ah… And dapat may kaso ito? Ginagawa nyong katatawanan ang mga me kapansanan? Too much. Ako makakalaban nyo dito!!! Enough!”

Sinundan ng aktres ito ng, “Mocha Uson and Drew Olivar, hindi ba nyo nararamdaman ang o alam ang ibig sabihin n OFFENSIVE?!!!..Ganito po pasimplehan naten para di na humaba. 

Paano kaya kung isang araw magbaliktad tayo ng puwesto ng me kapansanan at mga PWD ang mag-explain ng Federalism Government sa inyo at yang pamamaraan nyo din ang pagpapaliwanag ang gawin sa inyo? Ano ang mararamdaman nyo?

Madami kasi ako kilala na PWD na mas karapat-dapat sa position nyo eh. Sabi ko nga paulit ulit ako ay taga suporta ng PRD pero ang mga tulad niyo ang nakasisira sa imahe ng Pangulo.

Wag nyo antayin na si PRD mismo ang magsabi sa inyo nito. I demand a public apology on behalf of the PWD. Kung kayo ay me puso at public servant manghihingi kayo ng tawad sa ginawa nyo? Or gagawa kami ng petisyon para mabigyan kayo ng karapat-dapat na kaparusahan sa asal nyo.”

Inilabas pa ni Aiko ang ilang provisions sa batas na RA 9442 Revised Magna Carta for PWDs na labag sa batas na kutyain ang may kapansanan.

They are in the government. They should know better.”
