Whatever happened to the complaint Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan filed against certain YouTubers whom he accused of spreading defamatory statement against him, his wife Sharon Cuneta, and their children?
Well, it looks like he has notched a win already.
On Friday, the lawmaker announced that YouTube had taken down the said channels.
“Doon sa mga YouTube channel na naglalabas ng kasinungalingan ay sa awa naman ng Diyos ay tinake down na ng YouTube at ng Google,” he told TeleRadyo.
He went on to thank both YouTube and Google, for acting on his complaint.
But he maintained, “Sana hindi na kinakailangang umabot sa sampahan ng kaso para i-take down dahil sila na mismo may community standards. Nakita natin na ‘pag ‘di tayo kumilos, ‘di rin sila kikilos.”
He also noted, “Sana ganun din sa iba na walang pangalan, na hindi senador, dahil nga marami ang nabibiktima nitong ‘fake news.'”
Kiko made clear though that the cyber libel cases he filed against these YouTubers are still pending.
