LOOK: Agot Isidro calls out ‘fake news’ site for dragging her name
Veteran actress Agot Isidro became a victim of “fake news” after her name was dragged in an article created by a local website last Feb. 26. Isidro didn’t let this incident pass as she immediately took to Twitter yesterday to alert people and deny her involvement in such story.
“I did not say this. #FakeNews,” Isidro wrote. “Stop putting words in my mouth. Ktnxbye.”
The story’s headline read: “Habang Tumatagal sa Pwesto si Duterte, Pabulok Nang Pabulok Ang MRT- Agot Isidro.” It also included “quotes” from Isidro, which the actress never said, according to the photos she uploaded on her Twitter account.
The same website took to its Facebook page, called “Filipino at its Finest,” and shared the Agot Isidro article last Feb. 26.
“Anong masasabi niyo Dito mga Ka DDS (Diehard Duterte Supporters)?” the page wrote. “Agot Isidro: Six months nga na pangako niya sa drugs hindi nya nagawa e, eto pa kayang MRT na wala syang sinabi. Alam naman natin puro bunganga lang itong dating kasalukuyang gobyerno. Puro dada, puro kabastusan at insulto ang lumalabas sa mabahong bunganga pero wala namang nagawa.”
The “Filipino at its Finest” Facebook page was launched on April 14, 2016, a month before the 2016 Philippine presidential elections, which was held on May 9, 2016. It is described as a community organization “for the people who wants information about life in the Philippines and what they can expect upon arrival.” /ra
