Megastar Sharon Cuneta was planning to file charges against a group of online sellers using her name to market their supplement.
In her IG post, Sharon shared several screencaps of the posts being spread by the said group and warned the netizens that she was not really an endorser of the said product.
The said product was being marketed as a weight loss supplement, claiming that Sharon used it to lessen her heaviness.
“Isa pa po itong FAKE!!! Madami silang produkto pang iba. Ingat po kayo! Ginagamit po kaming mga artista ng di namin alam kahit ang produktong ito di naman namin kilala! FAKE PO ITO. Please share and try to inform as many people as you can. Pati si @draivee ginamit din nila nag-edit pa ng mga video namin FAKE PO LAHAT YON LALO SA FACEBOOK! Thank you po!” Sharon said.
Showbiz columnist Cristy Fermin has discussed the said issue in her radio program ‘Cristy Ferminute’ saying that the legal team of Sharon has already studied the legal charges that they could file against the people behind the supplement.
“Panahon na rin po para turuan ng leksyon ang mga taong hindi parehas lumaban. Isipin n’yo po si Sharon Cuneta, nagugulantang na lang po siya, nag-e-endorse na pala siya ng kung anu-ano?” Cristy said.
They even compared the megastar’s case with Luis Manzano who currently facing several charges because of allegedly endorsing a failing fuel company.
As of writing, the legal team of Sharon has yet to release a statement if they already identified the people behind the false advertisement.
