Vice President Leni Robredo denied claims on social media that her team distributed spoiled food at a hospital in Quezon City.
On Facebook, Robredo shared screenshots of a post saying there were rumors her team gave food gone bad at a hospital in Quezon City. It claimed that Robredo’s spokesperson Barry Gutierrez “rushed” to the said hospital and supposedly asked to keep quiet about the incident.
She added, “Please report this fake news peddler who is trying to skip liability with his ‘confirm, if possible’ line. This has never happened. I never went to this hospital. My spokesperson, Atty Barry Gutierrez said he has never visited any hospital during the entire duration of the ECQ/GCQ nor ever called this particular hospital.”
She added, “Our team delivering hot meals donated by private individuals said they never received such complaints.”
Robredo asked the public to report the said posts, warning, “fake news makes you criminally liable.”
