One of PLDT’s official Twitter accounts, PLDT Cares, got hacked by what appears to be the hacking group Anonymous Philippines on Thursday, May 28.

They changed the account name from “PLDT Care” to “PLDT Doesn’t Care”, and posted a tweet calling out the company.

“As the pandemic arises, Filipinos need fast internet to communicate with their loved ones. Do your job. The corrupt fear us, the honest support us, the heroic join us. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us,” the tweet read.

The post also included a photo of a Guy Fawkes mask—a symbol of rebellion made famous by the film “V for Vendetta”—and the hashtag #PLDTHacked.
