Mar Roxas motorcycle meme

So yesterday a photo of Local Government chief Mar Roxas taking a spill while riding a motorcycle went viral. The incident apparently took place while Roxas was doing his rounds in Samar to supposedly check on the casualties of typhoon Hagupit. Netizens were quick to criticize him--first for not wearing a helmet, and second for riding a motorcycle without a helmet precisely so people could see him.

The online lynching was so harsh that Malacañang had to defend Roxas, insisting there was no other way for the politician to go around the area except on a motorbike.

Well, it seems some people want to have more fun with the photo. Ryan Zear Lauro of Cebu sent us this meme, portraying the fallen Roxas competing in a motorcycle race. You just have to admire the humor of Filipinos even in the face of adversity, don't you think?
