Netizen started a petition to suspend Mocha Uson, Facebook responded by suspending his account instead

A netizen named Paul Quilet started an online petition to suspend the Facebook page of Mocha Uson which he alleges to be spreading "fictitious/unsupported claims, fake news, and false information about pressing issues in the Philippines."

The petition caused so much stir, sparked debate on freedom of speech and even prompting prominent personalities to air their respective opinion.

Some said that although they don't always agree with what Mocha says, suppressing her rights to speak is not the correct way to address it. Freedom of speech is freedom of speech.

Some, though, were adamant and even went on saying that the move is justified because of Uson's recent actions.

Quilet even updated the petition adding "This petition aims not to curtail anyone's right to free speech. Bear in mind that the liberties listed in the Bill of Rights are not absolute."

Facebook suspends his account

Quilet responded to queries on Twitter after his Facebook account becomes inaccesible at around 10pm Monday.
Yes, someone reported my Facebook account. -Quilet, Paul (@Pol_Kyu)
Apparently, Facebook suspended his account after his petition received massive reprisals from Filipino netizens.

In a strange turn of fate Mocha Uson's blog is still up and running, but the account of the person who wished for it to be taken down is not.

Do you think this is a perfect example of a 'digital karma?' Let us know in the comments section below.
