ISCP’s founder causes the downfall of their very own satirical institution

Wow, have we already reached the downfall of the International State College of the Philippines in just a span of a month?

In a now-deleted post that has been seen by many, Niño Ged, the founder of the ‘prestigious’ (satirical) ‘college’ (lmao so many disclaimers), apparently revealed themself as apolitical. This created a good deal of flak and ire from former fans of the ISCP, even going as far as to say that they were dropping out of the said college.

After the post had gone viral, the founder took it upon themself to “solve” the problem by posting a statement of apology through the “Office of the President of International State College of the Philippines”.

Apart from the “apolitical stance” issue, there had also been mentions that the founder of the satirical institution is crying foul over not being able to earn profits from the brand when there had been numerous people creating merchandise with the satire school’s name on it. In the end, the ISCP page has been monetized.

Well, well, well. Now isn’t this a disappointment we were all somewhat anticipating? Who would’ve thought that the whirlwind phenomenon that is the ISCP would be found dead in a ditch on the same month it spread like wildfire?

It was fun while it lasted, ISCP.
