Vilma Santos-Recto and her son Luiz Manzano slammed a fake Twitter account which is using the former’s name and photo to pose as her. 

Manzano retweeted one of the said page’s posts on his own Twitter account last Thursday, Jan. 17. The impostor used the actress-politician’s photo and the handle @vilmaSRecto.

Manzano echoed his fans’ appeal, saying, “Please report this fake account spreading fake news and [harassing] people.”

Meanwhile, Santos-Recto herself clarified that she is not handling the said page as she uploaded a screenshot of a post showing the said account on Instagram yesterday, Jan. 18.
