Dingdong Dantes sends letter to Ang Probinsyano production over unauthorized use of family photos

On August 13, 2018, through a post on his personal Facebook account, Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes addressed an issue brought up to him by Dingdong-Marian Rivera fans: Some of their family photos have been altered and used in Ang Probinsyano without their consent. 

The Facebook post also has a clip from an episode where their edited wedding photo can be seen. He revealed that a letter has already been sent to the production team behind Ang Probinsyano. In the letter, Dingdong wrote, "I appreciate that you found artistic inspiration from the original photos. Unfortunately, there is the inescapable consequence that legal and moral rights were violated here. And as you may very well be aware of, established industry practice is against such act as it amounts to disrespect. Worst of all, as a father and husband, I cannot help but feel offended and deeply hurt by such actions, which happened not just once, but twice. Basic rules of courtesy in this case dictate that you first secure permission from the photographer and my family."
