'#Facepalm': Twitter reacts to Gretchen Ho, Hidilyn Diaz 'ouster matrix' inclusion

QUEZON CITY, Philippines — When it came to Malacanang's most recent "Duterte ouster matrix," even elite athletes Gretchen Ho and Hidilyn Diaz weren't spared.

Both women were shocked at the inclusion and the general public shared the same sentiment.

Sen.Ping Lacson took to Twitter to express his disbelief. 

Lacson cited the successes both Ho and Diaz have made for themselves in their respective fields. 

Ho's fellow journalist Atom Araullo also poked fun at the issue on social media. 

Araullo contemplated if he should even talk to Ho anymore, saying he himself might be suddenly included in the matrix too.

Meanwhile, journo Inday Espina Varona used a single hashtag to react to the whole fiasco.

"#Facepalm," Varona's tweet read.

Twitter user @gxbrielperez also pointed out that Diaz would be too busy preparing for the 2019 SEA Games and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics to even be involved in this alleged ouster.

Meanwhile, Twitter user Christian Jay thought their inclusion was so outrageous that he said he wouldn't be surprised if fictional characters like Marvel's Thor or Thanos made their way into the supposed matrix.

"Napakawalang kwenta talaga," Jay's tweet read.

Needless to say, a whole lot of people find their inclusion in this matrix disbelieving.
