Screencap from the Twitpic account of @jploh
Ayala Malls has denied the authenticity of the supposed sign banning "poor people" from Greenbelt 4, photos of which started circulating on the Internet today. As seen in the photos making the rounds on Twitter and Facebook, the sign reads, "This is a private, controlled environment. Poor people and other disturbing realities strictly prohibited. Thank you!"
In a statement posted on their official Facebook page, Ayala Malls said they did not authorize the sign. "The Ayala Malls Management does not tolerate such pranks and is currently investigating the matter... We would like to reassure everyone that Greenbelt is for the enjoyment of the public and the community it serves."
In a GMA News Online report, Greenbelt 4 building engineer Armin Tan pointed out an error that shows the sign is a fake one. "Ayala Land Incorporated po kami, hindi ’Corporation’ (We are Ayala Land Incorporated, not ’Corporation’)."
