“[Mag-ingat] sa mga maling propaganda (Be careful with wrong propaganda),” she said on her Twitter page yesterday, Sept. 28.
Locsin also included a screenshot of a woman’s post about the video, whose thumbnail shows photos of the actress and President Rodrigo Duterte superimposed above a crowd. The woman, with the handle @ValleryDeVANZ, added that the actress’ fans were supposedly spreading the video on Facebook.

“Sino ang gumagawa at bakit may effort gawin ito?” Locsin asked. “[Mag-ingat] at wag magpaloko.”
(Who made this and why was there an effort to do it? Be careful and do not be fooled.)
The video is entitled “ANGEL LOCSIN formal Ng Nagpahayag na tumakbo bilang Senador sa ilalim ng LP Coalition | Viral na to” and was published by a certain YouTube account named Summit Media Philippines on Sept. 26.
It claims that Locsin met with the said political party on Sept. 16 and discussed her certificate of candidacy.
Locsin has previously clarified that she has no intention of pursuing a position in the national government since she already considers herself a public servant. JB
