You may have come across #RP69FanFic, which featured racy fictional stories involving personalities from the election season. Film critic Philbert Dy started the hashtag for fun, but he has since acknowledged that it’s already played out. Since then, he birthed a new hashtag: #RPNonFiction. This one is nowhere near as amusing as #RP69FanFic, and it’s also closer to reality than fiction.
The hashtag encourages Filipinos on Twitter to share their own stories or links from reliable sources that pertain to the Martial Law years in which Ferdinand Marcos, father to Senator Bongbong Marcos, was in power. The objective behind it is to educate the younger generation about the atrocities during that period. This gallery displays a few of these tweets.
#RPNonFiction trended in no time after Dy started it, and the hashtag has since been used in thousands of tweets. You can view more #RPNonFiction stories on Twitter by clicking here.
