Erwin Tulfo's Facebook Comments About Critics Of Ferdinand Marcos Sr.

The claim: Erwin Tulfo (a Filipino journalist, columnist, television news anchor, and radio commentator) told critics of the late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. to stop using infrastructure like bridges, highways, train stations, etc. that were built during the dictator's reign.

False. There's no evidence to show that Erwin Tulfo said it. The quote which went viral on Facebook and other social media sites like Twitter and Instagram originated from a Facebook page called "KUYA Erwin Tol". The page posted the quote on May 15, 2016 and so far it has generated more than 65,000 shares. The page isn't being run by Tulfo. The administrators of the page are still unknown.

The content of the post:
Maraming galit sa mga marcos.
Pero kung galit kayo panindigan nyo galit nyo.
Iboycot nyo mga pagawa ni marcos. Wag kayo dumaan sa SAN JUANICO BRIDGE wag kayo dumaan sa EDSA
Hanap kayo ng ibang airport wag kayo sumakay sa NAIA
wag kayo dumaan sa NLEX
wag kayo dumaan sa SLEX
Umalis kayo sa mga region ng pilipinas (region 1 to 12)
Umalis kayo sa NCR
wag kayo sumakay sa mga train. LRT, MRT, at PNR
wag kayo gumamit ng MERALCO
wag kayo gumamit ng tubig MWSS
wag kayo tumangap ng 13th month pay
at kung galit kayo iboycot nyo lahat ng mga proyekto ni marcos ewan ko lang kung mabuhay pa kayo.
Galit na galit kayo patuloy nyo naman pinapakinabangan ang mga pagawa ni MARCOS.
Diba mga tol.

*This quote is a variation of an arguments claiming that critics of Marcos don't have the right to criticize the late president because they're using the roads/highways/buildings/etc that the president built during his term from 1965 to 1986.
*Dozens of Facebook pages (mostly pages supporting Marcos and Duterte) regurgitated and spread the quote on social media.
From the KUYA Erwin Tol Facebook page.
