Julia Barretto: “I can’t tolerate fake news anymore.”


In a recent interview for Viva TV’s Anong Ganap, Julia Barretto speaks out about her battle against fake news.

The young actress shares, “As a normal na tao, mahilig din kasi ako makibalita sa mga current events. Sumusunod ako sa mga current na nangyayari lalo na sa bansa natin, sa ibang bansa, sa pandemic – and it really bothers me every time I stumble upon fake news.”

Recently, Julia became the topic of fake news herself when a blogger wrote an article about her, confirming rumors that were untrue. But she did not let this get her down. Julia fought back and filed a complaint against the blogger in NBI. This is in hopes that the people who spread fake news – especially about her and her family – would learn their lesson.

Julia shares about her experience, “I was proud of myself, because for the first time, I stood up for myself. For the first time, I defended myself, and for the first time, I protected myself. It’s the first time I actually put an action to do that for myself.

She adds, “As I always say, as much as it’s important to protect your loved ones, it’s also important to protect yourself.”
