Netizens slam Pasay councilor caught cursing health workers for using session hall as testing center
Netizens shamed this politiko from Pasay City who cursed at health workers for using the esteemed Session Hall as their area for rapid tests.
A viral video showed Councilor Arnel “Moti” Arceo shouting at the medical workers for testing city hall employees for COVID-19 inside the session hall. He said no one from the team asked for permission to use that space, but apparently, the city hall’s Human Resources Department already allowed that rapid tests to happen there.
Netizens were far from forgiving.
“He abused his power. Don’t vote on him again,” one Twitter user said.

Has anyone seen gaano i-degrade ni councilor Moti ang mga HCWs who are just doing their job? This is ironically expected from a leader who always bad-mouths whenever he can. Kung ito mai-defend na naman, ewan ko na lang talaga.#liftHCWbanNOW@ChelDioknohttps://t.co/njmSNx6mSX

A Pasay Councilor: express his regret over his anger to our FRONTLINERS. I dont think he is sorry because he hurt someone, his sorry is to save himself from people’s anger.

Someone went as far as looking into his political and personal background and found some gems about his behavior. Photos on his Facebook showed him flexing ties with high-ranking politikos like Bong Go, Alan Cayetano, and losing vice presidential bet Bongbong Marcos.
Here is the Facebook profile of the Pasay City councilor who is trending after he berated the med techs, who were just following orders to conduct rapid testing in their session hall.
Look at the featured photos. Surprising? 😜 pic.twitter.com/5YhnrB89ZM
