Senator Risa Hontiveros has expressed support for actress Liza Soberano in taking a stand against rape jokes.
Soberano filed a criminal case against an telco employee for allegedly posting a rape threat against her on social media. Upset by the incident, the Kapamilya star said there was nothing funny about rape.
As soon as the actress filed the complaint, Hontiveros took to Twitter to rally behind Soberano.
“Let’s keep on making each other braver. Purple heartRaised fist Patuloy lang, @lizasoberano,” she tweeted.
