Tattoed farmer reacts to DepEd’s module discriminating people


- Advertisment -

As the Department of Education (DepEd) in hot water again due to its alleged errors in students’ learning modules, netizens, including big artists in the industry, are outraged over discriminating remarks found on the learning materials. 

One of the first influential persons to react is Lea Salonga, posting a screenshot of a module. 

“Ang tattoo ay simbolo ng _____. A. pagiging kriminal, B. pagkakaalipin, C. kagitingan at kagandahan, D. pagiging mababa ng katayuan sa lipunan,” the module read. 

Yesterday, a photo of a module allegedly approved by DepEd has also made the rounds on the internet, showing a family of farmers living in stark poverty. 

Facebook user JD Lacson, a farmer who has tattooed on his body, reacted to the modules. 

He called the attention of the DepEd by mentioning them in the caption and introducing himself. 

“Hi DepEd Philippines, I’m JDL! Marketing Management graduate and Agri0Business graduate. A barber, firefighter, and a farmer,” he said. 

“Tattooed and proud,” he added. 

Lacson coupled his post with three selfies–a mirror selfie showing a tattooed pair of arms, a selfie on top of a fire truck, and a selfie on his farm. 

His post has now nearly 1,000 reactions, 60 comments, and 400 shares as of this writing.
