ABS-CBN has released a statement regarding the fake nude photos of Sue Ramirez and Maris Racal that’s been circulating online.
Here is the full statement:
It has come to our attention that maliciously edited images of our talents, Sue Ramirez and Maris Racal, have been circulating online.
ABS-CBN and Star Magic condemn the act of illegally manipulating photos of celebrities or anyone, which is a form of gender-based online sexual harassment under RA 11313 or The Safe Spaces Act.
We would like to appeal to everyone to stop sharing these fake photos on social media. The welfare of our talents is our top priority, and we intend to pursue legal action against the perpetrators and anyone who posts, distributes, or duplicates these images.
Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, even on social media.
Meanwhile, Maris and Sue expressed their disgust to the perpetrator on social media:
There’s an edited photo of Sue and I spreading online. Kung sino man ang nag edit nun, wala kang utak. Itigil na ang pambabababoy ng katawan ng mga babae. Pagaari namin ‘to.
2021 na, manyak ka pa rin? Magbago na.
