In a statement sent to talent manager Ogie Diaz and shared by Ogie in a vlog on Thursday, November 17, Neil said: “Me and my wife are charitable people. Donation na po namin sa fake news peddlers ‘yang kikitain nila sa pagpakalat ng fake news (The earnings of fake news peddlers from spreading fake news would be our donation to them).”
