Vico Sotto Tricycle - Vico Sotto was Credited as a Tricycle Operator in a News Report, Here’s How He Responded

For a news reporter, one of the things that will make them cringe the most is giving the wrong facts, having a typo that completely changes the idea, or crediting someone with the wrong title. Thankfully, people these days are understanding and know that everyone makes honest mistakes. One of those people is Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

In a report on GMA’s 24 Oras, the mayor was credited as a tricycle operator. Sotto posted a screenshot on Instagram Stories, adding the caption, “may tricycle pala ako!”

Zai Taguinod, the show’s producer, quickly went to Twitter to apologize. He said, “Pasig City po dapat ‘yan. Sorry po, nagkamali po ‘yung chargen operator.”

Sotto is known for his humor and he responded to the tweet with, “Don’t worry about it! Sa panahon ngayon, kailangan din natin ng konting comic relief.”

He added, “speaking of tricycles… natapos na natin ang pamamahagi ng tulong-pinansyal sa 87 TODA + 2 PODA (padyak) ng Pasig.”
