Kapamilya star Liza Soberano claps back at a netizen’s rape threat against her on social media following the actress’ complaint about a certain Internet service provider.

The Facebook comment reads: “Wala tayong magagawa, wala ng trabaho, kaya di bale ng masira ang image, magkapera lang. Sarap ipa-rape sa mga…. ewan!” (We can’t do anything. There are no more jobs, so never mind losing one’s image, just to earn money. It would be good to have you raped by… whatever!)

The comment was forwarded to Liza and her manager, Ogie Diaz, via Twitter by @oreoDani8.

The concerned netizen urged the actress and her manager to not let the nasty comment pass, as it may happen to other people with no power or influence.

The actress replied: “Don’t worry, we won’t let this one pass. They know my address.”

The employer of the netizen who allegedly posted the Facebook comment on 21 September said that the company does not tolerate such actions, and that they are dealing with the matter and will carry out proper disciplinary measures against its employee.

The issue started when Lisa tweeted a complaint regarding the slow Internet speed at her house earlier this month, and how fast another service provider responded to help her — a privilege not accorded to common folk.

Liza addressed the disappointment of other customers of her previous Internet service provider, saying it was not her intention to boast. She called on all internet service providers to “please do your best to help people out especially at a time like this when the Internet has become an essential. We’re all trying to survive and get school and work done.”
