Alleged Customs employee bashed for insulting OFWs

Roussel Osena Tan, an alleged Bureau of Customs employee who insulted overseas Filipino workers while defending the agency's random balikbayan box checking, has been bashed.

In her previous posts, Tan (also known as Maria Roussel O. Tan and Lessour Nat Aneso) allegedly said most OFWs have a "crab mentality" and are "dumb."

She also called them modern-day heroes who engage in extramarital relationships.

Her posts sparked outrage among netizens on social media.

On Tuesday, August 25, Tan apologized for her remarks, but denied insulting OFWs. She claimed that her Facebook account was hacked.

The alleged Customs employee said she sought assistance from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) anti-cybercrime unit to track down those behind the "fake" Facebook pages that posted derogatory remarks that caused anger among OFWs.
