Kaye Abad explained why she was spotted being guarded by several men while shopping for groceries at a mall in Cebu City.
It can be recalled that Kaye went viral on social media after she was recorded while traveling around the mall while being followed by several men wearing white uniforms.
According to her, the bodyguards were provided by the mall where she visited as she was collaborating with the said establishment.
Kaye said that she refused to be guarded, but the bodyguards told her that they were only following orders.
“I explained it on my social media na I did a collaboration with this supermarket. And then, so nagpadala silang bodyguard, the bodyguards work for the supermarket, and then I told them na hindi ko na kailangan ng bodyguards kasi ’yung mga Cebuano sanay naman na sakin na nag-iikot-ikot lang ako sa mall mag-isa,” the actress said.
“But then sabi nila, ‘sige lang ma’am’ kasi inutos daw sa kanila so sabi ko, ‘ah okay,’ so yung nag-viral, hindi po sa akin yung bodyguards na ’yun, sa supermarket po,” she added.
