Ellen Adarna faces charges over Instagram story of minor – reports

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Ellen Adarna faces charges for posting an Instagram video of a minor and accusing her of taking the actress' photo without permission.

According to SmartParenting, Myra Santos, the mom of 17-year-old Eleila Santos, filed a "child abuse, cybercrime, and libel" case before the Pasig City prosecutor’s office on Tuesday, May 15.

Santos’ complaint comes a week after she posted an open letter to Adarna on Facebook, wherein she demanded that the actress issue a public apology within 5 days. Santos also hinted at possible legal action should Adarna fail to respond. (READ: Where is Ellen Adarna's public apology?)

Adarna posted an Instagram story on May 4, showing the younger Santos and her companion. Adarna wrote as its caption: “Oo yan ha… you know the feeling… uncomfy noh?” (There… you know the feeling… isn’t it uncomfortable?) (READ: Ellen Adarna insists diner at ramen place is paparazzi). 

The 17-year-old took to Twitter later that day to defend herself, saying that she was taking a video of her food and didn’t even notice that Adarna was in the restaurant. – Rappler.com
