Celebs react to Mocha Uson "Mayon Volcano in Naga" issue

Asec. Mocha Uson has been trending for hours now after she mistakenly said in her own video that Mayon Volcano is in Naga City.

Famous in the world for its near-perfect cone, Mayon Volcano is in the Province of Albay, and not in Naga City, which is an independent component city geographically situated in the Province of Camarines Sur.

Both are in the Bicol Region, and that's possibly confused Mocha Uson (even though she's been taught many times through her Sibika at Kultura class that it is in Albay).

In the viral video, Mocha was talking about her UST alumni award when she suddenly mentioned about Naga and Mayon Volcano.

"Ginagamit po ng ilang mga tao ang napakaliit na issue na 'to, ang pagtanggap ko ng award, para pagtakpan yung issue ng dengvaxia, issue ng pagtanggap diumano ni Sen. Drilon ng pera galing kay Napoles at yung pinakamahalaga pa, yang nangyayari sa Naga, ang pag-aalburuto ng Mayon Volcano. Dun dapat nakatuon ang mga balita," Mocha said in the video which she herself has posted on Twitter.

She later corrected her mistake and apologized, but committed another error when she said "Mayong Bulkan" instead of "Bulkang Mayon".

Mocha received tremendous amount of criticisms from netizens for her mistake and even drew reactions from celebrities like international Broadway star Lea Salonga, proud Nagueño actor Enchong Dee and singer-songwriter Jim Paredes.
