Wag mauuto: Gov Boying Remulla says burned man photo not from HTI fire

Fake news has found its way to Cavite.

Governor Boying Remulla is an eagle-eyed politiko on social media. A day after the HTI Factory tragedy, photos circulated online that showed a man’s body charred beyond recognition, much to the horror and anger of netizens.

Remulla quickly dispelled the rumors, saying that these were not taken from the factory fire in Cavite. A fact-check done by the provincial government showed that it was an old photo of a Bengali man from Google search.
