While Senator Villar has clarified that her comments against unlimited rice were merely rhetorical and not meant to inform people of her legislative agenda, it’s pretty obvious that plenty of Filipinos were triggered, to put it mildly. Needless to say, we love our unlimited rice, and anyone who gets in between us and our beloved staple food of choice risks earning our undying wrath.
