Sen. Hontivers seek to probe the ‘shoot-to-kill’ remark..
Facebook art group ‘Guhit Pinas’ trended on Tuesday morning after a tweet exposing the group’s biased judgement on political posts went viral.
Reign Buenaventura, @reighnism on Twitter, shared screenshots of artworks from the group— one was made by him which shows a man wearing a crop top and holding a tote bag with ‘OUST DU30’ print, and another is a leaf art of President Rodrigo Duterte and SONA 2020 posted by another member.
The artist said his post was taken down by admins, saying it was ‘political’ while the leaf art is being appreciated with over a thousand reactions.

Buenaventura received support from netizens, artists or non-artists alike.
Twitter user @wondernerd1 said the group is a ‘shitty place’ which doesn’t appreciate other art styles rather than realism.
noticing that guhit pinas is trending haha.— wonder nerd! COMMS OPEN! (@wondernerd1) July 27, 2020
it's a shitty place, no appreciation of other styles besides realism, and it's rampant with a very traditional way of thinking; hence the repetitive content, realism = god tier, and digital art ≠ art
leave the group now
Another twitter netizen @artofeureka said Guhit Pinas is merely a “liza soberano & catriona gray fanart group.”

Rebreb @JshRmrz said the reason why he never joined the group is because he was afraid of the insults he might receive.
