Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda warned the public about a fake account using his name and photo to pose as him.

Miranda posted a screenshot of one of the impostor’s posts on his Twitter page (@chitomirandajr) last Sunday, Jan. 5. The account used the handle @itsmechito_ and a black-and-white photo of the singer.


It appears that Miranda has already been asked about the said account prior to his post, as he said, “Again, this is not me at wala akong [kinalaman] sa account na yan (I have nothing to do with that account).”

“He (or she) is just pretending to be me,” he added. “Naka-block nga ako sa account na yan eh (I am blocked by that account).”

When one netizen (@rosecoloredbey) noted that the poser’s post, about treating women with respect, made a point, Miranda agreed, but explained that the account’s tweets were actually stolen.

Meanwhile, some of Miranda’s fans immediately reported the said account after seeing the singer’s post.

Another Twitter user (@BigFatButt27) also suggested that Miranda verify his account so others may not be fooled by the poser anymore.

Aside from Miranda’s impostor, another poser used the name and photo of actress-TV host Amy Perez to solicit money from her fans last December.  /ra
