#BoycottTapaKing trends following Baste’s endorsement reveal
Tapa King recently unveiled presidential son Baste Duterte to be its latest brand endorser citing his always on the go and adventurous spirit in the franchise’s decision to welcome him to their family.
However, with a ton of issues surrounding his father’s presidency, the negative publicity seems to be backfiring on Baste’s endorsement deal.
Netizens have taken to twitter to express their displeasure over the brand’s choice of endorser.
Si Baste pala ang bagong endorser ng Tapa King. Napabili tuloy ako… sa kabilang restaurant pic.twitter.com/nntUlReBZX

Twitter user Peepaubau said that it wasn’t such a loss since he wasn’t a fan of the establishment anyway.

While many of the Twitter users took issue to Baste as endorser, there were also those who took the opportunity to air their displeasure over the serving size of meals and the price at the establishment compared to its competitors.
Overpriced, such small servings. Ugh. Mas okay pa ang Jbee bfast tapa.
More reason to #boycotttapaking

Still, Tapa King seems to be happy with their choice of endorsers and the internet is a free space to air public sentiment. (ANGEL ONG)
