“That’s nice, now how about giving their land back.”
This is what an online user tweeted recently as a reaction to actress Bea Alonzo's recent vlog where she is seen preparing meals for her Aeta neighbors at her farm in Zambales.
The tweet received mixed reactions.
Among those who commented is Bea's lawyer, Atty. Joey V. Garcia of the GERA law firm.
In a statement published on PEP.ph, Joey warned the said netizen.
“It is unfortunate that a certain 'aloveyoutoo' made a very irresponsible & highly outrageous statement on Twitter asserting that Ms. Bea Alonzo should give 'their - (referring to Aetas) land back.'
“For the record, our client vehemently opposes that baseless and very unfair accusation. She and her family are the absolute and registered owners of the parcels of land in Zambales, acquired through legal and valid means.
“Let this message serve as a stern & final warning to that fellow who made the disparaging remarks against Ms. Bea Alonzo on social media to retract his/her unfounded accusation and to cease from further making defamatory statements that bring disrepute to our client.
“Otherwise, we shall be constrained to initiate all the appropriate legal actions against him/her in no time.”
