When news arrived that local scientists at the University of the Philippines-National Institute of Health (UP­NIH) successfully developed test kits for coronavirus (COVID-19), netizens were instantly reminded of Sen. Cynthia Villar’s disdain for science or research.

Netizens took to Twitter to take a swipe at Villar who had earlier castigated the Department of Science and Technology for giving too much importance to research and development.

Villar’s classic line “Baliw na baliw kayo sa research. Aanhin niyo ba ‘yung research?” has resurfaced on the internet.

“It’s amazing what research can do, no? Retweeting for Ma’am @Cynthia_Villar’s reference,” user @sugar_baroness said.

Another was so pissed that they had violent ideas.

“The stupid senator @Cynthia_Villar really needs some face slapping. See, may nagagawa ang research,” one said.

“Sen. Cynthia Villar, this is for you. May napapala po sa pagreresearch,” another said.

“Yes, the taxes of the people should go to HEALTH AND EDUCATION, not your propaganda,” read another tweet.

“When i see cynthia villar trending.. i know its about something stupid she does or says like how tito sotto trends,” @curiouscatnip said.
