MANILA, Philippines – Social media influencer and avid supporter of former President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, surrendered herself to the Butuan Police station for committing Psychological violence.
The Police officers mentioned that they are lacking information about the specific circumstances. However, it was disclosed that the 35-year-old social media personality posted bail amounting to P72,000 at approximately 3:30 p.m. on the same day.
“Hindi siya inaresto, nag-voluntary surrender siya. Nagpunta siya dito kasama yung kanyang relative at abogado, may dala na sila yung warrant nila. Tinignan natin sa database wala pa, pero since may dala naman siya prinocess namin dito dahil dito siya nakatira sa area of responsibility natin,” Gatchalian said in a phone interview
Magno clarified reports indicating her arrest by asserting that she voluntarily surrendered, emphasizing that she is “not guilty”.
“Have you ever seen a mugshot that’s much prettier than mine? […] Funny that people said I was arrested. Correction. I surrendered and posted my 72,000 peso bail and did NOT ask for a discount, and I was escorted by an entire TEAM of Butuan BEST,” Magno wrote in a Facebook post.
“Thank you to the Butuan City Police Station 4 for the wonderful experience today. I actually loved it! Hahahahaha! And to Barangay Ampayon’s New Barangay Captain Kim Acalayen for the fast process of my bail Requirements,” she added.
Magno became controversial many times for attacking the opposition and her criticisms against political personalities like former Vice President Leni Robredo. Because of her below the belt statements, there were instances when netizens wanted to ban her on social media.
In 2020, her TikTok page was banned and she was also considered as ‘Persona non Grata’ in Iloilo City after she bashed Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo.
