Jeff Ortega, the regional director of the Department of Tourism topped Twitter after he posted his introduction of Bongbong Marcos on his Instagram account.

He could distinctly be heard introducing Marcos as "former senator and vice president."

Many netizens became critical of the DOT regional director for not recognizing Vice President Leni Robredo in his statement.

Marcos filed an election complaint against VP Robredo, contesting the results of the 2016 elections.

DOT Regional Director Ortega did not elaborate on the reason behind his controversial move of addressing Bongbong Marcos as vice president when the duly elected one is Leni Robredo. The lady vice president has been also active on social media and recently, she hailed Mayor Vico Sotto as one of the politicians that she admires the most.

She also narrated to him all the projects that were completed under the office of the vice president. Of course, Ogie did not hesitate to ask about VP Leni's love life, if there is a possibility of someone making her heart beat again.
