It will be recalled that Isabelle Duterte, the daughter of former Davao Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, drew a lot of flak for her pictorial inside Malacanang. Some even asked if she broke the law by using the presidential seal in several of the images.

The young Duterte’s online fight with her father several weeks ago also went viral, and may have led to Paolo Duterte’s resignation after Isabelle implied that her father beat her.

Amid all these images of luxury and wealth, many netizens cannot help but ask: Isn’t President Duterte himself urging Filipinos to live simply? Where does all these fit in to the Duterte example of simple living? Where does all of the money spent for Isabelle’s debut come from?

Many netizens have started to bash Isabelle and her family for this obvious display of wealth amid speculation that corruption is involved.
