Virals: Nutri Asia bashed for epal moves during UAAP Battle of Katipunan Game 1
It seems that Nutri Asia still has not recovered from the backlash of the violent dispersal of protesting workers from this year as its bid to capitalize on the hype of the much anticipated Battle of Katipunan between UAAP Men’s Basketball finalists Ateneo and UP backfired royally.
In an Instagram post which has since been taken down by the company, Nutri Asia reportedly tried to get in on the media mileage generated by the first game of the UAAP finals and created a meme of Mang Tomas with the caption: “Sa labang ito, sino mas Macho Ganado? “#UPFight #OneBigFight.” It also appropriated the slogan being used by the game which is Battle of Katipunan and modified it as Bottle of Katipunan to describe the lechon sauce.
Netizens immediately shot down the promotional attempt and described the attempt as papansin. They also took the opportunity to remind fellow netizens that #BoycottNutriAsia is still on until the company adheres to proper labor practices for its employees. “Dito magkakaisa ang Iskolar at Atenista,” said one netizen.
“Papansin. Mas macho ganado kung aayusin nyo sahod at benepisyo ng mga empleyado
nyo “#BoycottNutriAsia,” another commented.
