ABS-CBN and Star Magic threaten legal action 'against the perpetrators and anyone who posts, distributes, or duplicates these images'

Actresses Sue Ramirez and Maris Racal criticized those who edited and spread a photo of the two online. The photo made it appear as if the two actresses posed in the nude beside each other.

“There’s an edited photo of Sue and I spreading online. Kung sino man ang nag-edit nun, wala kang utak. Itigil na ang pambababoy ng katawan ng mga babae. Pag-aari namin ‘to. 2021 na, manyak ka pa rin? Magbago na,” Maris said in a tweet on Tuesday, January 26.

(Whoever edited that, you’re dumb. Stop disrespecting women’s bodies. Our bodies are ours. It’s 2021 and you are still a pervert? Stop it.)

Sue, meanwhile, reposted the unedited photo, which was taken during a vacation a few years ago, on her Instagram account.

Ewan ko ba kung anong dahilan at pinuputakte ‘nyo kami ng ganito. ‘Wag ko lang mahanap ang nagpapakalat ng kung anu-anong katarantaduhan na ‘to. Ayoko na sanang magsalita pero ginagambala ‘nyo ang katahimikan ng buhay ko. Umayos kayo,” Sue wrote.

(I don’t know why you’re messing with us. You better hope I don’t find those who’ve been spreading that photo. I wanted to keep quiet but you’re messing with my life. You better shape up.)

At ‘wag tanga please. ‘Wag basta-bastang naniniwala sa mga nakikita online. Hindi kayo pinalaking uto-uto. Please lang. Sumosobra na kayo. Sa mga nakakatanggap ng picture, siguro naman may delikadesa at respeto kayo enough to know na dapat hindi na kumalat pa ang pambababoy na ito.”

(And don’t be dumb. Don’t believe everything you see online. You weren’t raised to be stupid. Please. You’ve crossed the line. To anyone who’s received the photo, I hope you have enough decency and respect to know that this has to stop.)

Sue later posted the edited fake photo and said, “Nakakatawa ba ito sa iyo?” (Do you think this is funny?)

“This can happen to anyone. Sa nakakaalam kung san nagsimula ito (To those who know where this started), please contact me through DM. Help me get to the bottom of this,” she said.

Hindi na tama ito. Masyado na kayong nawiwili sa mga panggagago ‘nyo samin. Ayokoo nang manahimik. Abusado kayo.” (This is not right anymore. You’ve gone too far with this foolishness. I can’t stay quiet anymore. You’ve gone too far.)

ABS-CBN and Star Magic also issued a statement Tuesday condemning the manipulation and distribution of the photo. They also threatened legal action against those who distribute the manipulated image.

“It has come to our attention that maliciously edited images of our talents, Sue Ramirez and Maris Racal, have been circulating online,” the network said.

“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.”

ABS-CBN added: “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.”

The network said everyone should be “treated with dignity and respect, even on social media.”

Maris and Sue, both talents of ABS-CBN and Star Magic, currently star in shows on TV5. – Rappler.com
