Pia Wurtzbach To Sue TV5 For Libel!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach was starting to get hate mail because News TV5 posted a quote card linking her to a comment suggesting that Vice President Leni Robredo be crowned Miss Universe. Robredo issued a statement about her idea of what makes a strong woman. Many supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte were not happy with that comment.

But then, TV5 issued an erratum, saying that the quote should have been attributed to Bianco Guidotti, another former beauty queen.

But it was too late. Wurtzbach said the damage has been done. So she is suing TV5 for libel.

Moral of the story: fact check, fact check, fact check.
