"You warned us there will be blood. So pwede ba 'yung 16 million lang na bumoto sayo ang patayin mo?"


Marian, Dingdong want parody Twitter account taken down

Kapuso star Marian Rivera-Dantes on Monday said she wants the parody Twitter account @superstarmarian taken down, due to the backlash her family received because of it.

"Nag-reklamo na kami, nag-message na kami, gumagawa na kami ng paraan para matanggal talaga 'yan," she said on the sidelines of the "I am Super: An Art Exhibit" in Pasay City.


This comes after the Twitter account @superstarmarian posted a tweet regarding President Rodrigo R. Duterte's campaign against illegal drugs.

"[You] warned us there will be blood. So [pwede ba 'yung] 16 million lang na bumoto sayo ang patayin mo? Because the rest of us didn't sign up for this," the tweet read.

As of writing, the tweet has 155 replies, including negative reactions from the President's supporters.

"Siyempre alam naman natin na maraming supporters si Mr. President tapos pangalan ko 'yung nakalagay dun. Parang sandali ha, siguro it's about time na magsasalita na ako na hindi ako 'yan," Rivera said.

"Wala akong Twitter account. May Facebook account ako, pero ang nag-aasikaso niyan hindi ako. Ang tanging hinahawakan ko lang is Instagram," she added.

The parody account uses the Twitter handle @superstarmarian and was previously under the name "Marian Rivera-Dantes," before it was changed to "Fake Marian Rivera."

"Although sinasabi naman daw nung @superstarmarian na hindi naman daw siya. Pero sabi ko, para gamitin niya 'yung pangalan ko, it's unfair so tama na," the actress said.


This was echoed by her husband Dingdong Dantes, who said their family has been receiving threats because of the parody account.

"Personally, I'm requesting whoever is behind that parody account, please take it down," he said.

"Minsan entertaining na magbasa ng mga parody accounts pero to a certain point, pagka involved na ang political views na nagiging dahilan ng threats or ng mga hindi magagandang bagay para sa akin, sa aking asawa, lalo sa aking pamilya, ay hindi ko papayagang mangyari 'yun," he added.

According to Dingdong, while the parody account was entertaining, it should not have posted political views which caused netizens to threaten his family.

"Siguro we were entertained already. Yes, we understand how witty you are, we're grateful also sa mga magagandang na-contribute mo," he said.

"But to express political views na magiging dahilan na magkaroon ng threats or magkaroon ng hindi magandang pananaw sa akin, lalo na sa asawa't pamilya ko, ay hindi ko papayagang mangyari 'yun," he added.
