Kiefer's statement also says: "Now that we have the first suspect under the PNP's custody, we hope to get more leads and information so justice will be served, and harassment and blackmailing such as this would end."

2 Iza Calzado is disappointed with the MTRCB's decision to not screen her new film, Bliss, in local cinemas. The movie by Heneral Luna director Jerrold Tarog was given an X rating for its frontal nudity, violence, and sex scenes. At a press conference on March 29, Iza brought up Fifty Shades Darker, wondering, "Why was it shown? It tackles only love and S&M. Our film, I would like to think, tackles more than that. It tackles abuse in society, not just in being an artista." She added, "It's suppose to wake you up about the cycle of abuse people go through in their lives. So these images that we will show you, they are not intended to arouse you, they are intended to disturb you and question things, make you think." (ABS-CBN)
