Ang Probinsyano apologizes to Dingdong Dantes after unauthorized use of family photos 

A few days ago, fans of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera noticed that a photoshopped version of their wedding photo was used in an episode of Ang Probinsyano. Fans also pointed out that a similar incident happened last year with a photo of the couple and their daughter taken during Zia's baptism. This prompted Dingdong to send a letter to the show's production team to express his "dismay and deep concern" over the unauthorized use of the photos.   

In a statement, the Ang Probinsyano team said that there was no intent to disrespect or offend Dingdong and his family. They explained that the production team commissioned a third-party contractor to create the photo props and were not aware that the original of the photographs used were the actor's.
