"RESPETO AT HUSTISYA, ang isinisigaw ng taong-bayan sa mga binitiwan mong pananalita bilang Pangulo ng Pilipinas! We are watching you, Mr. President," a group calling itself Blood Security Hackers International said on what used to be the homepage of Hotmanila.ph, a satirical political website run by freelance journalist Alan Robles.
 
BloodSec criticized Aquino for his absence at the arrival honors for the 44 slain PNP-SAF officers at Villamor Air Base, saying his absence disrespected the men who "died fighting" for his "reign".
 
The group also lambasted the president for being late to the necrological service for the officers, which had to be paused for Aquino's arrival.
 
BloodSec also extended their condolences to the families of the SAF officers.
 
Robles acknowledged his website's hacking on his Twitter account and seemingly took the attack in stride.
 
"Oh look, my site hotmanila.ph has been hacked by pseudopatriots. I never realized it was so influential," Robles tweeted.
 
Robles told GMA News Online that the website will likely be back online soon, and that he is "just waiting to see if it's really cleaned up."

On her website, journalist and blogger Raissa Robles said her husband's website was hacked a day after he posted an article asking questions about the encounter in Mamasapano, Maguindanao where 44 police officers, 18 Moro Islamic Liberation Front fighters, and at least two civilians were killed.
 
Netizens made the hashtag #NasaanAngPangulo trend worldwide on Thursday after Aquino chose to attend a car event in Laguna instead of the arrival honors.
 
Later on Friday, which was declared a national day of mourning, they used the hashtag #LateAngPangulo to express their disappointment over the delay

 
The group decried Globe Telecom's internet service and wrote, "Do something or expect the consequence. This is just the beginning. Expect Us!”. — Rie Takumi/VC/JDS, GMA News
