Actress and TV host Melai Cantiveros’s basher blames the hacker who allegedly made the rape comment using her Facebook account.
During this campaign season, Netizens have become more and more vocal about their political views. Some have taken it a bit too far by bullying people who are not voting for their chosen candidate. Melai Cantiveros is one of the victims of cyberbullying just a few days ago.
Melai is supporting Mar Roxas as her presidential candidate for this year’s elections. It is normal to see comments disagreeing with the actress but what really outraged Melai was the rape comment of Shawie Constantino Enriquez.
Shawie is a Duterte supporter who didn’t quite agree with Melai’s choice of candidate. The basher has crossed the line when she commented that Melai’s 2-year-old daughter Amelia Lucille Francisco should be raped.
Melai is not taking this lightly and is planning to file a case against that netizen.
After Melai’s announcement of planning to sue her, Shawie issued a statement via a different Facebook account claiming that someone hacked her account. She made a new account because she can’t access her current one.
She said: “Legit account ko po yun kaya hindi ko po magagawa ang bagay na ganun sa aking kapwa, lalo na sa isang artista. Tahimik po akong nagtatrabaho para sa aking pamilya. At may mga magulang at pamangkin po ako kaya hinding-hindi ko po magagawa ang bagay na yun. At higit sa lahat, malaki po ang takot ko sa Diyos. Maaaring may mga hindi maniniwala, pero ito po ang totoo. Hindi na po ako makapagtrabaho nang maayos dahil sa pangyayaring ito. Nakausap ko na din po ang mismong nanay at pinsan ni Ms. Cantiveros. Ipinaliwanag ko na po ang side ko sa kanila. Hinihintay ko na lamang ang pagkakataong makausap ko si Ms. Melai.” (That is my legit account and I can never do those things to other people, especially to a celebrity. I am silently working for my family. I also have parents and nephews and nieces; that’s why I won’t ever be able to do those things. Most of all, I have a great fear for the Lord. Maybe there are those who won’t believe me, but this is the truth. I can’t work properly now because of this incident. I was able to talk to Ms. Cantoveros’ mother and cousin. I have explained my side to them. I’m just waiting for the chance to talk to Ms. Melai.)
Shawie cries that she’s also a victim of this incident especially now that it is the campaign period. She is urging the actress to open her mind to this possibility.
Here’s her full statement:
Do you think she was really hacked?
