MMDA spokesperson Celine Pialago sued social media pages that posted misleading memes about her.
On Wednesday, the assistant secretary filed charges against the social media pages that posted memes about her before the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group.
This is after the Facebook page "Pinoy Laugh Page" and Twitter page "Barurot News" posted a photo of her with a caption"MMDA to commuters: Kung nahihirapan sumakay, 'wag na lang pumasok"
Pialago denied saying the quoted words on the said meme and accused the pages of spreading fake news. She also said that her credibility and performance were affected because of the misleading posts.
"We never said this, I never said this, even mga opisyal natin, walang nagsabi nito. This is technically and obviously fake news, false statement"
