MANILA, Philippines — Blogger and sexy performer Mocha Uson, who has been calling for the impeachment of Vice President Leni Robredo, has been “impeached” herself twice in just a span of a month.

Early this month, Mocha's account was suspended on Twitter, but was also restored within the day. According to Twitter, the common reasons for suspending an account include spam, account security is at risk, or abusive tweets or behavior from the user.

Just this week, her radio program on DZRH has been indefinitely suspended after a certain Jozy Acosta-Nisperos of the group The Silent Majority complained against Uson’s bad mouthing and tirades against Vice President Leni Robredo’s recorded message sent to the United Nations about the administration’s alleged extrajudicial killings.

Despite the suspension, the episode in question is still posted in Mocha Uson Blog .

In an interview with News5 on Thursday, Mocha said: “Nirerespeto ko ang desisyon ng DZRH but I still stand by my statement. Kung ano man ang sinabi ko ‘dun, dahil b____ talaga si Leni Robredo. Sinungaling pa dahil ‘yung mga sinasabi n’ya dun sa video n’ya addressed to the UN body at ‘yung mga tungkol sa 'palit-ulo' at statistics sa patayan sa Pilipinas. Kasinungalingan 'yun dahil hindi nila niresearch at I stand by what I said. B____ s’ya.”

According to DZRH station manager Rudolph Jularbal, a legal counsel, to be able to continue her program, Uson must take an exam on broadcaster’s accreditation first. The exam is administered by the broadcast industry’s non-government regulatory body, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas.

Mocha’s supporters made a trending hashtag on social media calling for Robredo’s impeachment, #GoodbyeLeni.
