Content creator group Tukomi remained silent on the charges filed against them because of their ‘prank’ that almost put their lives at risk.
It can be recalled that Tukomi went viral on social media after they made a prank that captured the attention of an off-duty police officer in Las Pinas City on April 7.
Because of the incident, Police Staff Sergeant Ronnie Conmigo filed charges against the group to stop them from doing the same content and set a lesson for other content creators.
“Para matuldukan na ‘yung maling pagba-vlog, maling content na ginagawa nila. Delikado po sa ating mamamayan [yung ginagawa nila]” Conmigo said.
Conmigo did not reveal the exact charges he filed against the group, but PNP Las Pinas chief Col. Jaime Santos said that members of Tukomi might be put behind bars for what they did.
“Ang Las Pinas police po ay nananawagan sa mga vlogger na please don’t encourage this type of vlog that might influence others, particularly ‘yung mga kabataan,” Santos stated.
Despite the controversy faced by Tukomi, the group still uploaded the prank and just blurred out the face of Conmigo.
People were now waiting for the statement by Tukomi about their plans to counter the charges filed by the police officer.
