Imelda Romualdez Marcos, the late President Ferdinand Marcos Sr. wife’s and mother of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., turns 93 today, July 2.

A LED billboard firm, meanwhile, put 93th on her birthday instead of 93rd. A portrait of Marcos from the film The Kingmaker followed the greeting.

The Kingmaker is a documentary about former first lady Imelda Marcos’s contentious political career.

“Ganitong uri ng kababawan ang taktika nila mula 1986 hanggang ngayon,” director Darryl Yap notes.

“Palalabasin ang mga tulad ng ganito na mula sa kakampi pero may masangsang na motibo,” he continued.

He said that the 93th  was chosen on purpose “para magmukhang mangmang ang mga taga-suporta.”
