“I condemn the person or persons behind these malicious acts to impute damage on my integrity and I hope that you can dig deep into your hearts and minds to truly find the truth in all these,” she added.
Bermejo was also interviewed by the Philippine news channel ABS-CBN, in which she insisted that she was innocent.
“Pero naman kung ako siguro ang nakakita sa post na yun, mag iisip naman ako na, bakit naman niya gagawin iyan. Bakit niya ilalagay ang picture niya? Bakit niya ilalagay ang real identity niya? Parang bine-bait niya sarili niya na, ‘Ok, kill me’,” she said. (If I saw that post, I’m going to think “Why would she do that? Why would she put her picture with it? Why would she put her real identity? It’s as if she’s asking for it: Ok kill me.)
“Pero after this, itong post na ito, unang-unang ginawa ko kagabi umalis ako sa bahay ko. Doon ako natulog sa bahay ng mga kapatid ko kasi natatakot ako,” she said. (After the posting, the first thing I did was to leave my house. I slept at my siblings’ house because I’m scared.)
According to some of the comments on Facebook, Bermejo may also have lost her job because of the whole controversy. Bermejo said that she has now taken legal steps to address the whole problem.
