Angel Locsin and Alessandra De Rossi gave their support towards Liza Soberano who filed a complaint against a telecommunications employee for making rape remarks against her!

On Twitter, actresses Angel Locsin and Alessandra De Rossi voiced their support towards Liza Soberano.

This comes after the Make It With You star formally filed a criminal complaint against a netizen who made a rape remark against her in a now-deleted Facebook post.

“Wala tayong magagawa, wala ng trabaho, kaya di bale ng masira ang image, magkapera lang. Sarap ipa-rape sa mga…ewan!” the netizen said, who was an employee of Liza’s former internet provider, whom she called out due to poor customer service.

It was Thursday morning, September 24, when Liza, along with manager Ogie Diaz and legal counsel Jun Lim, arrived at the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office to file a lawsuit of “libel, threats, and unjust vexation” against the netizen.

In his official Facebook account, Diaz posted Atty. Lim’s official statement regarding Liza and her complaint.

“In filing this criminal complaint, we believe that our client, Ms. Liza Soberano, merely asserted her right to be treated with respect. She stood up not just for herself but also on behalf of those silent victims of “rape jokes” and malicious statements perpetrated by few irresponsible members of the social media community,” Lim said.

“Ms. Soberano reminds us once again that women must be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their status in life,” he added.

By Thursday afternoon, upon news broke that Liza filed the complaint, Twitter users began showering her with support, using the hashtag #IStandWithLiza in their tweets.

Alessandra De Rossi also did her fair share of support towards the young actress, quote retweeting a report about her and thanking her for teaching the netizen a lesson when it comes to making remarks online.

“Matuto lang galangin ang isa't isa online. Lesson na ito para sa lahat,” she wrote.

“Salamat, Liza. ‘kaso’ is not good and magastos pa. So think before you make a nasty remark. Wala naman may kayang magsabi nun in person, lalong wag mo gawin online kung saan may ebidensya,” she added.

Angel Locsin shared a short but simple reply, giving virtual hugs to Liza.              

“Mahigpit na akap @lizasoberano,” the Iba ‘Yan host wrote, followed by hugging face emojis.

Liza’s home network, ABS-CBN, also showed their support by releasing a statement about the matter.

“Ang malisyosong paggamit ng social media ay hindi dapat pinalalampas,” the network said in a statement. “Hindi dapat na ginagawang biro ang rape.

Hinahangaan namin ang katapangan ni Liza na ipagtanggol ang kanyang sarili at protektahan ang dignidad niya bilang babae. Sana ay maging aral ito sa lahat na maging responsable sa paggamit ng social media at irespeto ang iba.”
