Guy shares his mom’s savage AF reply to an ‘amiga’ who criticized his radical post

Last Saturday, a parent posted on Facebook about how she would react if she found out that her daughter was protesting against the government. It was just one of the many thoughts and opinions on the matter that made the rounds on social media after the President said that he would have student activists kicked out of UP for walking out of their classes to protest.
