This post is fake. Don't believe it.
A netizen posted an image of veteran actress Sharon Cuneta wearing a yellow campaign shirt and attributed a fabricated statement to her.
The fake quote card, published July 6 on the public Facebook (FB) group PROTECT THE PRESIDENT DUTERTE said: “Ito naman talaga ang tunay at totoo ko na kulay ‘dilaw’ kaya gusto ko si Lenie [sic] manalo pagka presidente (This is actually my real and true color -- ‘yellow,’ that’s why I want Leni to win as president).”
A keyword search yields no evidence of Cuneta making this statement in news reports, video clips or any post on her social media accounts.
The fake quote card comes a week after the actress said Vice President Leonor "Leni" Robredo could "restore decency in most of us" should she become the country's chief executive.
“Dilaw” or “Yellow” and its other form, “Dilawan,” has become a colloquial term for supporters of the opposition -- the Liberal Party, where Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Cuneta’s husband, is president.
The fake quote card received over 2,500 comments after it was reshared on two other FB groups -- Solid Duterte Supporters Worldwide and Tulfo Brothers Worldwide. Majority of the comments attacked Cuneta for supposedly admitting where her loyalty lies and supporting the vice president.
Cuneta’s support for Robredo is not new; she endorsed the vice-president in the 2016 polls.Instagram Live that she hopes Robredo runs for president and wins as it might “restore decency in most of us.”
