This politiko reminded the public to be kind to persons with disabilities (PWD).

Actor turned Quezon City Congressman Alfred Vargas was disappointed upon reading a news item where a deaf woman was made fun of by crew members of a branch of convenience store 7-Eleven in Makati. The woman was trying to buy cell phone load but faced mockery from two staff who laughed at her.

This did not sit well with Vargas, who went for a scolding on Twitter.

“Ang diskriminasyon sa mga PWD tulad ni Tricia ay dapat mahinto. Edukasyon gamit ang iba’t ibang communication platform ay kailangan para sa adhikaing ito. Ang pagrespeto sa mga PWD, ay pagrespeto sa kapwa at pagrespeto sa ating sarili bilang tao,” Vargas said.
