Gretchen Fullido Files Criminal Charges Against ABS-CBN Executives

A news report circulating on social media involving one of its reporters, identified as Gretchen Fullido filing a case against ABS-CBN executives, but it was not shown in various mainstream media particularly ABS-CBN.

According to the news report, Gretchen Fullido files criminal charges against News Executives and reporters of ABS-CBN for sexual harassment, libel and victim shaming. She became the first popular news reporter who filed a case against more prominent news media executives of ABS-CBN.

The ABS-CBN anchor and entertainment reporter, Gretchen Marie Fullido, filed a sexual harassment case against Cheryl C. Favila, former ABS-CBN News Executive, and Maricar P. Asprec, ABS-CBN News Segment Producer. The case was filed before the City Prosecutors’ Office of Quezon City.

The entertainment anchor alleged that Favila and Asprec sent her text messages that were loaded with sexual innuendos, which amounted to requests for sexual favors. She further stated that when she rejected the advances, the two retaliated and made it difficult for her to work as a reporter and news anchor for TV Patrol. It was a cycle that was going on for almost three years.

Gretchen Fullido also filed libel cases against two news executive of one of the country's most popular news network, ABS-CBN, namely Cecilia Drilon and Venancio Borromeo together with fellow news reporter Marie Lozano, alleging that the three besmirched her reputation when they stated that she filed a similar sexual harassment complaint against Favila and Asprec with ABS-CBN management to leverage her emplloyment status with ABS-CBN.

Fullido in her Complaint Affidavit also said Drilon resorted to victim shaming and imputed statements that Fullido deserved to be harassed, since Fullido allegedly, was willing to wear a bikini with an inflatable pool with bubbles to shove up the ratings of TV Patrol, a leading daily news program.

Gretchen Fullido, a regular employee and news reporter and anchor of ABS-CBN became the first Filipino news celebrtiy to speak up against sexual harassment in the news industry in the Philippines.
