MANILA, Philippines - Netizens were outraged by the spread of a social media post by a sexy model bragging a business card signed by a high-ranking official of the Philippine National Police (PNP) which she used to dodge a traffic violation.
In a Facebook post which has been making rounds on social media, model Alyzza Agustin said that she was able to avoid being reprimanded or a traffic violation because of a business card signed by PNP Director for Plans Alexander S. Ignacio.
The post read: "Nahuli nanaman ako dahil coding but because of you Boss Alex wala ng huli huli. Thank you so much sa napaka-useful mong card with matching dedication pa #happykid"
(I was caught again because I had violated the number coding, but because of you, Boss Alex, I was not apprehended. Thank you so much for this useful business card with matching dedication.)
The business card of Ignacio read: "PLS ASSIST MY EA, ALYZZA AGUSTIN". Agustin did not clarify what "EA" meant.
Some netizens questioned her capability to think, saying that she should not have posted and bragged about her connection.
Some people also suggested that Agustin was more than as an "executive assistant" to the police official.
Meanwhile, some saw the scandal as an opportunity to question if the practice of hiring models as "executive assistants" is prevalent in the police force.
Agustin has since deactivated her Facebook account. Meanwhile, PNP Spokesperson Senior Superintendent Wilbur Mayor, said Ignacio is out of the country but will explain his side of the story when he returns to the country.
