Tony Award winner Lea Salonga is calling out the “saboteur” responsible for making viral a screenshot of a module associating tattoos with criminals.

Apparently, there’s more to the said story.

She wrote in a Facebook post: “Thanks to a direct message (you have my sincerest thanks… you know who you are) sent to me, turns out that the context of that page was such: the discussion was on Philippine History and on the significance of tattoos in our culture. The correct answer was C, that tattoos were a symbol of beauty and courage. Not A, that tats are a sign of being a criminal.”

The 49-year-old Broadway star then shared her “amateur opinion” that someone out there wants to make someone else look “incompetent.”

“Covering up a big part of the page and making it look like the answer key was marking the wrong letter as correct. For my part in this, allow me to apologize. I just want for our kids to get as good an education as they can get,” she related.

As for the saboteur, she noted there’s a “special place in hell for the likes of you.”

Last week, Lea expressed disappointment having seen the screenshot, thinking the Department Of Education actually authorized something so wrong.

She said, “Okay, someone would need to tell me if this thing is really ok’d by the DepEd. And if so, WHAT KIND OF BS IS THIS???”
