LOOK: Torre de Manila ‘photobombs’ Mexican President
Torre de Manila, the building netizens have dubbed as the “Pambansang Photobomber,” is in the spotlight once again.
The condominium’s full height ruined the view of the skyline when Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto paid the Rizal Monument in Manila a visit Wednesday.
Nieto, who is in the country for the the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Summit and a state visit, posted the photos of his visit on his Facebook account.
In one photo, Nieto was seen walking away from the monument with Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada with Torre de Manila in the background.
Netizens couldn’t contain their feelings and commented on Nieto’s photo and it had one encompassing emotion—anger.
Most of the commenters called for the demolition of the Torre de Manila.
“That building is a curse,” said one David Anthøny Manibø in a comment which has nearly 500 likes.
“That building is an eyesore to a meaningful monument,” Kirby Baloy posted on the photo.
