- Frankie Pangilinan was among the first celebs who condemned the alleged "rape-slay" of Christine Dacera
- She retweeted a tweet of the list of names blamed or accused of the death of the PAL flight attendant
- However, things turned in the process as the Makati prosecutor released them as it will still be investigating the rape charges made against the accused
- Thereafter, a number of individuals called out Megastar's daughter, including celeb Markki Stroem, and thus, it led to Frankie issuing an apology
The daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Frankie Pangilinan, initially took to Twitter and retweeted a tweet where the names of the alleged persons responsible for the death of PAL flight attendant were listed, but as the investigation progressed, the Makati prosecutor's office released the three suspects and stated that there is a need for further investigation.
This led a number of individuals to tag Kakie, seeking an apology.
Celeb Markki Stroem said, "This is not enough, I have friends on this list who did not deserve this public shaming. I rarely tweet. Take this down and apologize."
Frankie, did not defend her position but was brave enough to admit a mistake, and apologized. The following were her tweets, published as-is.
"I will withhold opinions until further, accurate information is dispersed, but i would like to apologize for the initial impassioned tweets here below :((( all my other sentiments, however, remain true — respect is better than protection, and rápe is and always will be terrible."
"I got caught up in the outrage, i promise i’ll do better. i’ve deleted all of the misleading tweets but i stand by everything i said re: respecting girls, and i hope christine still gets the justice she deserves. it’s still a heartbreaking and gut-wrenching way to start the year."
"Before i sleep i’d just like to reiterate how absolutely sorry i am for helping to spread misinformation :(( the authorities’ statements were misleading and confusing (and still are) so i hope you can understand. regardless, rápe will never be okay, though."
Dr. Raquel Fortun, an expert forensic pathologist, also mentioned in an ABS-CBN interview that based on the autopsy, there was no sign of rape. She also advised to "zoom in on drúgs" and a toxicology report should have been secured.
The suspects have been released from detention as per the Makati prosecutor's order as further investigation is needed.
The photo of PAL flight attendant Christine Angelica Dacera which was the one she uploaded last on her Instagram account has gone viral. The caption on the photo of Christine was "Last flight for this one helluva year." The upload was made before the news of the 23-year-old's demise broke.
Friends of Christine Dacera gave an interview to ABS-CBN and recounted how good their friend really was. One of her friends, Andrei Barretto, candidly recalled his last conversation with Christine on New Year's Eve on IG. Andrei said that he replied to her story and that while he told Christine that he was at home, she told him that she booked a room with friends. When Andrei told her, baka "mapano ka dyan," she replied that it's negative because her companions were "mas babae pa" than her.
