Press statement on malicious social media posts about 'PBB 737' housemates Kenzo and Bailey

“Pinoy Big Brother 737” housemates Bailey May, 12, and Kenzo Gutierrez, 18, have recently been the subject of malicious posts that have gone viral on social media. These posts are made by irresponsible netizens who maliciously take screenshots from the program’s live stream and weave a narrative that is not only far from the truth, but also attempts to put the housemates in a bad light. They mislead the public by manipulating the images to put malice to otherwise innocent acts.

ABS-CBN vehemently condemns these irresponsible social media posts that malign the reputation of the housemates. We are concerned with the welfare of our young housemates and it is our responsibility to protect them. We will not allow them to be subjected to cyberbullying.  We will not tolerate the abuse of social media.

To put a stop to this, ABS-CBN is taking a stand on the issue by shutting down the free 24/7 livestreaming of the program on cable TV (SkyCable) and online (iWant TV and TFC.tv) starting tonight. We appeal to the public to stop perpetuating abuse and use social media responsibly.

–Kane Errol Choa,

Head, ABS-CBN Corporate Communications
