The 33-year-old Ravales, a member of a marketing and sales company posted a photo of him surrounded by cars with the caption, "Nag aral ka sa magandang school tapos ang trabaho call center? Then ang sweldo mo ganun lang.. Nabawi na ba ang tuition fee na nagastos simula elem hanggang college? Worth it ba ang sweldo mo sa hirap at pagod mo? Or may pera ka dahil sa nanay at tatay mo? Isa lang ang buhay… Sarapan mo na.. Join my team ipaparamdam ko sayo ang masarap na buhay."

It was supposed to be a pitch hoping to invite people to join his networking business, however, things went way bitter than he expected.

Almost right after his post on September 24, netizens went furious online.

The scenario seem to have transformed into something like "Polo Ravales vs. 400,000 Call Center Agents", headlined Top Trends TV.

Negative comments from call center agents and other concerned netizens rained down on Ravales like raging meteors from the sky.


Due to pressure and extent of anger the social media post had caused, Polo took his post down.

On Friday (Sept. 25) last week, he posted an apology on his Facebook account.
To all the people who I offended..again sorry..i didn't mean that way..again my sincerest apologies..godbless
