Senator Risa Hontiveros, in particular, arrived clad in a long barong top, which she layered over a pastel pink pencil skirt.

Meanwhile, another user @alwaysThirty commented, "Parang ikaw lang nakapansin sa legs ni Risa Hontiveros. I think it is more of a reflection [of] you than her," she said.

The senator also retweeted some posts relating to the issue:
