#NotoSofitel and #BoycottSofitelPH Hashtags Dominate Twitter for Days

#NotoSofitel and #BoycottSofitelPH as you may have noticed, these two hashtags have been consistently at the top trending list in twitter.

Well, consider this a battle cry against discrimination. Here’s the story –

A Sofitel, one of the luxurious hotels in the Philippines have decided to remove UNTV channel on the list of existing TV channels available on their hotel where guests can view and enjoy its highly educational shows. While other channels, they did not delete.

Clearly, hotel Sofitel has singled out UNTV channel, as in, “out” literally.

Historically, UNTV has done nothing bad against the hotel and there is no valid reason for them to do such a thing.

As a result, the supporters of the UNTV, that is also known as the public service channel decided to unite to fight against discriminations. Any people should not be deprived of their freedom to watch and stay tune in any channels on TV and to watch what they want to watch.
