Columnist and talent manager Ogie Diaz has warned fans of his ward Liza Soberano about a fake Facebook account bearing Soberano’s name.
“LizQuens! Lizanians! Favor. Please report this FAKE page. Hindi po ito ke Liza Soberano.
https://www.facebook.com/reallizasoberano12,” Diaz appealed through his Facebook page on Nov. 8. “Inglisera din ampotah, hahaha! Imbentora lang ang lola nyo.”
(This is not Liza Soberano. This one is also English-speaking but is just making things up.)
The fake Liza Soberano Facebook account was reportedly making political posts about government officials.
“To all paid trolls, [DDS] warriors, DDS robots, sorry but I will always speak for what is right. Boycott all my [endorsements]? HAHAHAHA go ahead! You’re not welcome to buy or acquire all these products. You can’t keep me silent. My dear supporters, please share this post,” the fake Liza Soberano page stated.
It also took a swipe at Armed Forces of the Philippines Southern Luzon Command chief Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr.
“Parlade is a member of the [National] Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict, a task force formed under Duterte. It was promised to pursue a ‘whole of nation approach’ [vs.] insurgency, but has so far been bent on red-tagging on social media,” said one post.
Parlade’s statement asking Soberano to cut her ties with Gabriela, so that she will not suffer the same fate as that of Josephine Anne Lapira, earned widespread criticism for its red-tagging nature. Lapira was a Gabriela member who died in 2017 during an encounter with the New People’s Army.
Fans of Soberano did spot the difference between the real and fake account, and posted their comments. They noticed grammatical and typographical errors which are unlikely from the eloquent actress. JB
