There’s a Phone with Duterte’s Face on It. Are You Buying?
In case you missed it, a rare, limited edition of Cherry Mobile’s popular unit, the Flare JS2, has surfaced. Where other OEMs choose supercars and superheroes as motifs for their special editions, Cherry Mobile, for some reason, chose Pres. Rodrigo Duterte, a person who, in my opinion, is anything but. It must be said that this writer holds no admiration whatsoever for the man whose face is, much to my aggravation, has been plastered on a box of a smartphone.
Obviously, I have reasons of my own, and if you’re of sound mind, you get a sense of why I’m calling out this grave misstep on Cherry Mobile’s part. At a time where the country is on the brink of collapse, why celebrate a figure who’s been nothing but a sigil of our possible downfall?
As such, we’ve created a post on Facebook that invites everyone to talk about this move. Are you going to buy the Cherry Mobile Flare JS2 Duterte Edition? Tell us on Facebook.
All opinions, of course, are welcome. Let’s make this a healthy and kind conversation. I genuinely would like to hear all of our readers’ thoughts on this.
