Idedemanda ng kampo ni Catriona Gray ang nagpakalat sa social media ng umano’y hubad na larawan ng beauty queen.
Sa pahayag ni Atty. Joji Alonso, abogado ni Cat, sinabing peke at “digitally altered” ang naturang larawan, na nilabas ng isang local tabloid.
Kinundena rin ng kampo ang attempt upang sirain ang pangalan ng Miss Universe 2018, at hinikayat ang madla na maging mapanuri sa mga nakikita at binabahagi online.
Narito ang buong pahayag ni Alonso:
“It has come to our attention that an alleged topless photo of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has been spreading online and a certain tabloid will be releasing it.
We want to inform the public that the photo is fake and digitally altered.
We are actively coordinating with authorities to hold accountable whoever is behind this scheme and face penal sanctions accordingly. We will likewise take legal action against those involved in the manufacture and publication of said photo.
We strongly denounce this vicious attempt to tarnish the good name of Ms. Gray.
At a time when fake news is prevalent, we firmly urge the public to be discerning and critical of what they see and share on social media.”
