ABS-CBNNews.com reports that on her Twitter account actress-singer Sharon Cuneta expressed her support for Republic Act (RA) No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act 2012. According to the report, Cuneta was asked by one of her followers about her stand on the issue, to which she replied:
"Madaming nasasaktan kasi nagtatago sa ibang identity ang iba at tumatapang. Wala nang privacy ang mga tao. Pag may free speech, dapat may responsibility. Eh ang iba parang ’di na tayo human beings, wala nang delicadeza. Dapat lang ma-punish ang mga naninirang puri. Pag sinira mo ang pangalan ng isang taong wala naman masamang ginagawa, para mo na siyang pinatay (There are so many who profess to be hurt because there are some people who become bolder with their fake identities. People no longer have any privacy. If there’s free speech, people should take responsibility. It’s like we’re no longer human beings, we have no consideration for others. Those who besmirch the reputation of others must be punished. If you ruin a person’s reputation even if he didn’t do anything wrong, it’s like you killed him)."
The report noted that Cuneta also added: "I’m all for the punishment of cybercrime. Some people have just gone too far."
