LIGO SARDINES BIKTIMA NG KALIWA'T KANANG FAKE NEWS!

Ligo Sardines is one of the country's leading food manufacturers. The company announced that they are reallocating their entire advertising budget this year to benefit non-government organizations, charities, and independent groups in the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).


On Saturday (April 4, 2020), #boycottligosardines has been one of the trending topics on social media. It was because of the fake news being distributed by paid bloggers alleging that workers of Ligo were displaced.

Karen Davilla, however, tweeted a clarification after retweeting content from Bilyonaryo (one of the paid bloggers attacking Ligo). According to her tweet, workers of Ligo receive mandated government benefits & that 96% of their 400 workers were reinstated.


The company has already released a statement debunking the politically motivated allegations being thrown at them.


So next time, before you join a hashtag you see, know the full story so you won't fall victim to fake news.
