Facebook page “Duterte and Bato Supporters” posted a video last night, August 31. Former Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary is seen singing a popular song “Careless Whisper” in a room with a concert-like ambience.

In the video, De Lima—with microphone in hand—is backed up with a band as she wholeheartedly sang to the audience. The senator is swaying her hips as the audience sings with her and chants.

“Hayop talaga tong si Leila Balyena, todo tanggi sa mga pinagagawa nya pero sobrang daming ebidensya ang magpapatunay na protektor sya ng mga druglord, nag concert pa sa bilibid amp*ta! ikaw na may talent... share natin 'to mga ka-DDS para madakip na ng mga pulis at makulong kagad!” (This Leila Whale (De Lima) is a beast! She always denies all her wrong-doings but there’s too many evidence to prove that she’s the protector of the druglords. She even held concert in Bilibid for f**** sake. You’re the talented one…Let’s share this Duterte-Bato Supporters so the police can arrest her immediately!) the Facebook page said in the post.

The video went viral immediately after it was posted. As of now, it has 15,000 plus likes/reactions, 79,000 plus shares and has been viewed 1.4 million times already. The comment section of the video too gained quick hatred and judgements by netizens, lauding negatively on De Lima.

But some commenters warned to think twice and not be quick to judge.

Other netizens claimed that the video is not from the Bilibid but rather an event De Lima had been a guest of honor to. The setting of the video is said to be quite different from the one used in the music video of robbery gang Leader Herbert Colangco which was shot inside of the jail facility;
