A film outfit participating in the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival revealed today, December 27, that it has already identified the suspects behind the illegal download of the movie "Fan Girl" which trended after a daring scene by its lead actor Paulo Avelino.
"Sa lahat ng nagpirata ng pelikula namin, nakuha po namin ang pangalan ninyo. Pati sa lahat ng nag-share at nag-message ng 'pa-DM naman ng link'. Mabulok sana kayo sa kulungan," said Kriz Gazmen, business unit head of Black Sheep Philippines, on his tweet.
Gazmen also compared the suspects to robbers in another tweet.
"Hindi ka papasok ng grocery at magsashoplift ng sardinas, tinapay, gatas at kung anu-ano pa kahit gaano mo kakailangan kasi tatawagin kang magnanakaw. Ganun po ang ginagawa nyo pag pinipirata nyo ang pelikula namin. Nagnanakaw kayo. NAKAKAHIYA KAYO, MGA MAGNANAKAW."
On Dec. 26, Gazmen slammed people behind the illegal download of "Fan Girl."
"Merry Christmas and happy holidays sa inyong lahat except sa mga namimirata ng pelikula MGA HxxxxxK KAYO HINDI NA KAYO NAAWA SA AMIN SARADO ANG SINEHAN SA GANITONG PARAAN NA LANG KUMIKITA ANG MGA NAGTATRABAHO SA INDUSTRIYA MAAWA NAMAN KAYO."
The film trended on Christmas Day after netizens uploaded a daring photo of Avelino.
Reacting to the viral scene, Avelino shared a photo of a scene from a movie with Charlie Dizon who plays the ''fan girl.''
Then Avelino wrote on Facebook: “Selfie with me muna ang ipost nyo, huwag yung… (see-no-evil monkey emoji).”
