Isidro said that this came after Professional Heckler wrote about the PNP and their distaste for “tambays.” Inquirer.net editor John Nery also issued a statement of outrage by saying that Heckler’s style is necessary for fighting “former and wannabe dictators.”
Suspending @ProfessionalHeckler is a terrible mistake, @Twitter @TwitterSupport @jack. His comic genius, his gift for satire, is a necessary and effective weapon vs former and wannabe dictators. He has also built a large community of civic-spirited Filipinos. We are all outraged. https://t.co/LK4hfHY10C

Atty. Lucille Sering could not believe Heckler’s suspension and continued to seek details on the matter. Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay encouraged everyone to continue retweeting the petition to bring Heckler back.
