Netizens slam Grab Philippines for offensively using women for their new promo

  • Grab Philippines draws flak for using Gerald Anderson issue for its new promo
  • Grab slammed for ‘normalizing’ cheating

After receiving flak, ride-hailing firm Grab Philippines took down its post that featured Kapamilya stars Julia Barretto, Maja Salvador, Pia Wurtzbach, Kim Chiu, Sarah Geronimo, and Bea Alonzo with the caption: “Walang kailangang maiwan. Walang kailangang masaktan. Sa GrabCar 6-seater, pwedeng magsabay-sabay.”

The six actresses have all been linked one time or another to Gerald Anderson who is currently the subject of cheating rumors.

The post immediately gained thousands of reactions, mostly negative for being insensitive and offensive.

The transport network company immediately posted an apology.

“We apologize for running the light! We were in no way encouraging nor condoning disrespect for women and disrespect within relationships. We admire the love and loyalty that fans have for all these wonderful women. Thank you for reminding us what not to be,” the firm said.

Last Sunday, Alonzo, Anderson’s girlfriend of almost three years, made cryptic posts on Instagram, alluding to betrayal. While she didn’t say who she was posting about, eagle-eyed fans noticed Bea had liked the Instagram post about Gerald spending time with another celebrity, Julia Barretto. Previous women linked to Anderson were also brought up again.
