24 Sep – Liza Soberano recently stated that she won't ignore a rape comment supposedly made about her by a Converge employee.
As reported on ABS-CBN, the actress recently retweeted a post made by a netizen urging her not to let the threat go unnoticed, and responded, "Don't worry, we won't let this one pass. They know my address."
The issue sparked in early September, when Soberano complained about the telecommunications company's internet service and calling them unprofessional for not answering any of her calls. In another tweet, she revealed that she had decided to change to another provider, PLDT instead.
She later revealed that some people have criticised her for ranting about internet connection, and defended her stance on the subject saying that internet has become essential during these trying times.
Following her posts, Soberano was informed by several netizens that an alleged Converge employee has made a rape comment against her in response to her statement and subsequent decision to change provider, saying that someone should rape the actress instead for making such a big deal about internet connection.
On the other hand, Converge has recently released a statement about the issue, writing, "We are deeply concerned about the wrongful comments and behaviour of some employees over social media. We do not tolerate such actions toward any customer and emphasise that their personal opinions do not reflect the company's perspective, values, and culture. We are currently dealing with this matter and we will carry out disciplinary measures accordingly."
