Is Moriones, Tondo the scariest place in Metro Manila? That was the question raised by TV5 teleprompter reader, Shawn Yao, on her Instagram account.

The photo, uploaded on Thursday during a coverage for Aksyon Tonite, drew ire from netizens who felt displeased with her remarks about Tondo, which she called the "scariest place and stinky armpit of Metro Manila."

Even the creator of the popular Fashion Pulis blog, Michael Lim, took to Twitter to air his sentiments about Yao's crude comments.

Ouch. As they say, if you can dish it out, you've got to learn how to take it back. News5 executives may really want to brush up the reporting skills of their new "it girl." A real journalist would know that you can't just say things like that. It's as simple as that.
