    Rams David, the talent manager of the prime Kapuso star, issued a stern warning on Twitter about the matter.

    David tweeted some provisions of Republic Act 10175 or The Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.

    All Access Artists, the talent management group, said the video “has been digitally manipulated using deepfake technology.”

    “We will not hesitate to take appropriate legal action against any person circulating the same. We intend to hold those individuals criminally and civilly liable for the damage caused to Ms. Mendoza," the statement reads.

    “Rest assured that we are taking all the necessary steps to hold the individuals involved accountable and we are coordinating with the proper government agencies to remove the content online permanently,” it added.

    Meanwhile, loyal fans of Mendoza expressed their support for their idol to "protect her at all costs."

    Despite the viral fake news, Mendoza has more reasons to smile since she and boyfriend Arjo Atayde are celebrating their second anniversary this month.
