Nancy Binay’s balloon inspired attire during the President Benigno Aquino III’s SONA 2014 has sparked a slate of new internet memes.
Senator Nancy Binay certainly had an interesting time at the Fifth State of the Nation Address (SONA) at the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City yesterday after she captured attention for her choice of dress.
Nancy Binay, who proposed bill amending Republic Act 9262 which contains provisions aimed to criminalize humorous internet memes, chose to wear a green hot air balloon inspired dress, as called by some netizens, which caught the attention of internet meme creators.
The design was an easy target for the humorous internet meme: hot air balloon was one of the first to hop on board.
Even a pack of Datu Puti vinegar got in on the action.
Following are the internet memes taken from different sources.
Binay’s proposed Electronic Violence Against Women (E-VAW) bill mentions the unauthorized use of a picture, video, voice, name, or identity that will put someone in a bad light or injure the victim’s reputation.
According to the bill, “electronic violence” refers to acts done through information communications technology, such as computers and the internet, “that will cause mental, emotional or psychological suffering to the victim.”
If it becomes law, those found guilty of causing “electronic violence” can be imprisoned for up to 6 years, pay up to P500,000 to their victim, fined an additional P300,000, and will be made to undergo psychological counseling.
Are the internet memes above could force her to continue filing the bill until it becomes a law?
