Apparently, there's a tweet going around where Janine Gutierrez called 2022 presidential hopeful Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. (aka BBM) "baskil" and "dugyot." The full tweet goes as such: "Yuck. Baskil. Maraming ninakaw sa bayan pero dugyot."

On October 15, Twitter user @LolaBashangMsgs posted about it and asked for proof of Janine's alleged tweet and even tagged the 32-year-old ABS-CBN actress as well: "Anyone na magpapakita sakin na nagtweet talaga ng ganito si Janine? Husayan nyo. [fire emoji] @janinegutierrez"

She went on to tell her followers not to belittle politicians' outer appearances but to focus on facts: "Hindi tayo mababaw. Hindi importante ang itsura o panlabas na anyo ng isang politiko. Dun tayo sa facts lang, lalo na ngayong eleksyon. Mag-iingat sa fake news, guys!"

Janine isn't the first celebrity who's a victim of fake news relating to the 2022 national elections. Just last week, Liza Soberano was informed by a follower that a TikTok post of her allegedly supporting BBM was going viral on the platform. "Hi Ms. @lizasoberano, please check and be aware of this one poginagamit po nila yung photos mo and pinapakalat nila na you are a supporter of BBM," the netizen said.

"Thank you for informing me," Liza replied. "Beware of false information, everybody!"
