The Pasay City Regional Trial Court issued a warrant against influencer and musician Toni Fowler after being charged for her allegedly committing cybercrime due to her rated SPG music video.
It can be recalled that Toni faced charges after the Kapisanan ng Social Media Broadcaster ng Pilipinas, Inc. (KSMBPI) filed complaint against her, saying that the public should not consume her music video KPL.
They believed that freedom of expression should have limits, and Toni crossed it.
“Kasi when you say freedom of press or freedom of expression, hindi absolute ‘yan. May mga limitation ang freedom of press… the second limitation is Article 201 of the RPC. Ito ‘yung nagbibigay ng indecent publication,” KSMBPI’s legal counsel, Atty. Mark Tolentino said.
The complainant added that there was a minor involved in the music video.
After the warrant was issued on January 17, 2024, Toni quickly posted bail, which amounted to PHP120,000, to gain her temporary freedom while the case was being heard.
As of writing, Toni has yet to give a statement on the case she was facing.
Aside from Toni, the same group also filed charges against Vice Ganda for performing alleged indecent acts in front of several childre on It’s Showtime.
