This petition had 531 supporters

Mocha Uson, the appointed assistant secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office, is considered as a government employee upon accepting her appointment. However, she continues to use her social media accounts to spread fictitious/unsupported claims, fake news, and false information about pressing issues in the Philippines. She is also in violation of several articles under RA 6713 Section 4. She continues to widen the rift between those who support the current administration and those who are critical of it. We are calling both President Rodrigo Duterte and Martin Andanar to fire Margaux "Mocha" Uson from her current position and have her continue her role as a private citizen.

According the RA 6713 Section 4 - Norms of Conduct of Public Officials and Employees.
