CLAIM: Vicky Belo supports the presidential bid of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
An unverified list of artists, celebrities, and influencers supposedly backing the presidential bid of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is spreading on Twitter.
The list included Vicky Belo, medical director of the Belo Medical Group, prompting her son, director Quark Henares, to issue a denial.
Henares tweeted on April 24: “PUCHA NAREFUTE KO NA ‘TO HA. FAKE NEWS. Honestly probably half the people on this list are not BBM. This is a pretty sad reaction to the overwhelming artista support of @lenirobredo.”
That same day, he tweeted a photo of his sister, Scarlet Belo, wearing a Leni Robredo baller.
He said: “ok na ba to?!” Henares also tweeted the hashtag #LeniKiko2022.
The unverified list has been liked more than 1,200 times, quoted more than 409 times, and retweeted more than 200 times as of posting time.
Paki tag po ng mga artista na kilala nyo na nasa listahan para they can confirm na totoo ito. Haha. Baka mamaya may hindi pala dapat kasali jan. pic.twitter.com/HIf6WTrIIa

While “Philippine Dairy Inquirer” describes itself as a parody page, the post in question was not labeled as satire, and could still mislead people into thinking that Robredo had voted for Marcos.
