Matapos silang batikusin sa “Pepedederalismo” video, ginawa naman ngayong katatawanan nila PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson at blogger na si Drew Olivar ang sign language na ginagamit ng deaf community.
Sa video ay makikitang hinimok ni Uson si Olivar na mag-sign language. Subalit kung anu-anong nakakainsultong hand gestures lang ang ginawa ni Olivar.
Ayon sa Republic Act No. 9442, ang ginawa nila Uson at Olivar ay isang uri ng pang-iinsulto o vilification laban sa mga Person with Disability (PWD).
