Vice Ganda becomes favorite target subject of fake news videos
Three months ago, the Unkabogable host and performer Vice Ganda has been the subject of numerous videos online peddling fake news and false information. The campaign season has been both cruel and kind to the well-loved multislashie.
With a legion of fans and strong following on social media platforms, Vice has been used to provoke supporters of another party into having heated exchanges and engaging in online word war. This heightened after Vice revealed his political stance last April. The sought-after brand ambassador and influencer voluntarily endorsed presidential candidate Vice-President Leni Robredo.
Earlier this year, Vice cried foul after finding out that he has been used heavily in propaganda and disinformation materials. On Twitter, he said, “Andaming fake news at wrong informations sa TIKTOK! Haaaay!!!! Mga contents na pagaawayin ang mga tao. Uudyokin kayo para magalit. Andaming masamang tao na lalong pinagugulo ang mundo. Wag kayong pabiktima.” He shared a TikTok video pitting him against staunch Bongbong Marcos supporter and fellow host and comedienne Toni Gonzaga.
