Arnell Ignacio has just filed an official complaint against Mystica for having cursed the President.
Ignacio, a known supporter of the President, went to the prosecutor's office in Imus City, Cavite, and filed three complaints - cyber libel, inciting to sedition, and violation of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.
Arnell used the videos on social media, which showed the actress cursing at the President, as his basis for the complaint.
In a May 22 post, Arnell stated:
"Kapag seryoso ang issue e file na ako ng case. Hindi talakan lang sa FB. Hindi mo puede mura-murahin si presidente nang ganun-ganun lang at aatungal ka pagkatapos. Mas malala, nagyaya ka pa na pabagsakin ang gobyerno imbis na tumulong ka na lang. Yung pagmumura mo naman e parang PERSONAL ang kasalanan sa iyo, e. Kahit man lang sana sa edad nung tao e binigay mo na kahit katiting na paggalang.”
The video where Mystica cursed the President circulated online and went viral, which became the turning point for Arnell Ignacio, prompting him to file the complaint.
In a previous KAMI report, Arnell Ignacio graduated from college at the age of 55. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Political Science, major in Local Government Administration.
Arnell Ignacio is a television host and comedian. He was appointed by Duterte as OWWA Deputy Administrator in 2018 and resigned from the post in 2019. He also served as the assistant vice president for community relations and services of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) prior to his OWWA stint.
