Here’s the full statement:
"Star Magic is deeply concerned about the bashing and threats directed to our artists' young children on social media. These posts are not only irresponsible and unnecessary, but they are also downright heartless and cruel.
We stand with our artists in calling out these people, who may be liable for violating the law against child abuse (Republic Act 7610) and existing libel laws.
We will not hesitate in seeking legal action to make sure these individuals, whose posts have already caused undue hurt and trauma, will learn their lesson."
Star Magic artists are under the training and management of Star Magic, founded by Freddie M. Garcia (then Executive Vice President and General Manager for ABS-CBN) alongside Johnny Manahan, more popularly known as 'Mr. M'.
Just recently, Carlo Aquino recently hit back at his daughter Enola Mithi’s basher on social media. The celebrity dad even aired strong words against rude people who do such malicious doings against innocent ones.
Earlier, Janella Salvador's son, baby Jude, also became a victim of harsh criticisms online. Some rude netizens aired offensive comments on the baby boy’s face. Janella then shared a heartfelt post dedicated to her son, baby Jude.
