"Let's see how Leah Navarro would want her house to be burned down by a firecracker explosion. How would she like it if she wanted some rest because she's sick but she can't get it because of the firecrackers' noise and smoke? Worse, how would she like to be injured because somebody threw a firecracker at her?" said PNP Chief Bato Dela Rosa in an interview.
She was soon seen in a battle in social media. She ended up blocking up to 100,000 Filipinos who criticized her for her reckless statement. She also failed to recruit people to join her in Jim Paredes' proposal of a "Light a Firecracker Against Duterte" movement.
