Abay to pursue cyber libel charges vs two who tagged him in ‘walis tambo’ photo

Filipino rock icon Dong Abay said will file cyber libel charges against Rodel Rodis and Gemma Nemenzo for tagging him as the masked man holding a “walis tambo” in the recent siege of Capitol Hill in the United States.

After a photo of man holding a “walis tambo” inside Capitol Hill became viral, the two said it was Abay who was the masked man, which the Filipino rock icon immediately disputed as he was in the Philippines as testified also by his friends.

Abay said in a Facebook post that he will pursue the charges against the Rodis and Nemenzo and will hire the services of a lawyer in the United States.

“This is to inform the public that I’m pursuing a cyber libel case to be administered by a US lawyer against Gemma Nemenzo and Rodel Rodis for spreading fake news,” Abay said.

Rodis, who claims in his Facebook profile that he works for a law office in San Francisco, California, tagged Abay as the masked supporter of US President Donald Trump holding the broom during the riot inside Capitol Hill.

Rodis said he got the information from a certain Gemma Nemenzo.

However, Abay’s friends said the rock icon was in the Philippines and even appeared in a gig for a local radio station, singing a rendition of “Redemption Song” by the late Bob Marley.

Abay also had this to day obviously to Rodis: “I don’t f*cking care if you’re an immigration lawyer or a [privileged] Filipino-American because I’m a rockstar. #boomer #boomerang.”

Although Abay made waves in the 1990s with the song “Banal na Aso, Santong Kabayo,” among others, he is still being sought after for gigs proving that he is one of Pinoy rock’s enduring icons. CURRENTPH
