MANILA -- The #HijaAko" online movement was started with the hope of ending rape culture in the Philippines.
And while a good many have expressed support for this, ensuring that the hashtag remains a safe space for victims to finally speak up about their harrowing experiences, it appears some toxic trolls have taken offense over women daring to have a voice and have been throwing out rape threats this past week as backlash.
This Saturday, Sharon Cuneta has had enough of these disgustingly violent people, especially after one targeted her daughter, Frankie Pangilinan, 19, who initiated the "HijaAko" movement.
On Instagram, she posted an alleged quote from a certain Sonny Alcos threatening to rape Frankie.
"What an a**h**e of a father," Cuneta began her furious letter.
The rest can be read, unedited below:
"Considering may anak kayong babae. Oo alam namin. At anuman ang pambabastos ng isang tunay na hayop na tulad mo sa asawa ko at LALONG-LALO NA SA ANAK KONG DALAGA, ay pagpapatunay lamang na may mga demonyong nasa mundo na tulad mo.
"Kaya tama ang ginagawa ng anak kong disente at matalino."
"Pinagmamalaki mo pang DUTERTE SUPPORTER KA, ganon ba? Alam mo bang kahihiyan ka sa Pangulo? At para sa kaalaman ng isang bobong katulad mo, ang Juvenile Justice Law ay hindi para hindi parusahan ang mga kabataang may krimen kundi kung seryoso ang offense ay pananagutan pa rin ngunit ihiwalay sila sa mga hardened criminals na maaaring abusuhin naman sila - at managot sa isang prosesong angkop sa kanilang pagiging menor de edad!
"Ayon sa batas kung serious offense, minimum isang taon pa rin silang kulong at maaaring mas matagal. BAGO KASI MAMINTAS NG BATAS NA GAWA NG SENADOR, ARALIN MUNA. (Sorry po mga Sharonians but this monkey crossed the line.) BOBO. TANGA. HIGIT SA LAHAT, WALA KANG TAKOT SA DIYOS!
"Ang kapal ng pagmumukha mong patulan ang issue at pagsalitaan ng ganito ang anak ko! Tayong dalawa ang magharap - di ko man lang iistorbohin ang asawa kong humarap sayo - tutal baka magmukha kang aso pag ako nakaharap mo! Di kita uurungan.
"HINDI MO AKO KILALA PAG ANAK KO NA ANG BINASTOS MO. O, BAKIT TINANGGAL MO NA ANG LAHAT NG SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS MO AT PINALITAN MO PATI PICTURES? We are now verifying our leads to your employers. Wow kung puede lang liparin!!!
"I WILL PERSONALLY MAKE SURE THIS KABABUYAN YOU HAVE POSTED TO DISRESPECT MY DAUGHTER IN THIS DESPICABLE, MALICIOUS AND INSIDIOUS WAY WILL BE OF GREAT INTEREST TO THEM. I AM ALSO FORWARDING THIS TO SEC. MEYNARD GUEVARRA WHO HAS BEEN MY FRIEND AND LAWYER SINCE 1992.
"HAHANAPIN KITA. I. WILL. FIND. YOU. YOU FACE ME, YOU COWARD. DUWAG. TANDAAN MO KUNG SINO AKO. NANAY NI KC, FRANKIE, MIEL, AT MIGUEL. YOU CROSSED THE LINE. GOD HELP ME AND THE LAW! GOD HELP YOU WHEN I FIND YOU.
"HINDI KITA PATATAHIMIKIN. TANDAAN MO ITO: AKO AY ANAK NI PABLO P. CUNETA. MALI ANG BINANGGA MO, DEMONYO KA. @bernsrp @indaysaraduterte (SHARONIANS, remember this monkey’s face and name please.)
Cuneta's daughter, Frankie, has made headlines after she made a firm stand against rape culture and victim shaming in the Philippines, via her movement she dubbed "#HijaAko."
She called out broadcaster Ben Tulfo because he disagreed with her views that women should not be taught how to dress up to protect themselves against sex offenders.
