Nang magpost kahapon, September 11, ang Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines tungkol sa 99th Birthday ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand E. Marcos, maraming nag-react na mga likers o subscribers ng naturang Facebook Page dahil sa caption ng photo. Ito ang original na caption bago pinalitan:
“Celebrating his 99th birthdate, Ferdinand Marcos started his political career in 1949 as Representative of the Second District of Ilocos Norte, 10 years thereafter, Marcos was able to secure a seat as a member of the Philippine Senate in 1959 and was elected Senate President in 1963. Ferdinand Marcos became the 10th President of the Republic of the Philippines in 1966.
Marcos was the first post-independence president to be re-elected in 1969. In 1972, he declared Martial Law to suppress a communist insurgency and secessionism in Mindanao.
In 1986, Marcos stepped down from the presidency to avoid bloodshed during the uprising that came to be known as “People Power”.
Ito ay ikinagulat at ikinagalit ng mga subscribers/likers ng page at binansagan pa na “revisionist” ang admin ng Official Gazette. Ilang oras nakalipas ay binago rin ang caption ng admin at nagbigay ng mensahe:

Tiningnan ng Boss Ng Pilipinas (BNP) ang mga old posts ng Official Gazette sa panahon ng Aquino Government, makikita natin na puro negative ang captions nila pagtungkol sa kay Marcos. May hashtag pa itong #NeverAgain pero walang masyadong nagreact sa mga subscribers/likers ng page.
Tiningnan din ng BNP kung sino ang mga 1,162,046 subscribers/likers ng page at nalaman na karamihan ay mga Aquino believers kasi 2010-2016 ay hawak pa ng Aquino Admin ang page ng Official Gazette. Nasanay na kasi ang mga subscribers/likers sa mga anti-Marcos posts, kaya noong lumabas ang pro-Marcos posts na nagsasabi ng totoo, ito ay ikinagulat ng mga Aquino believers.
