The office of the undersecretary at the Department of Education (DepEd) is poised to file criminal charges against the perpetrators of a fake Facebook page of the annual “Palarong Pambansa” putting the name of the official in a bad light.

In a statement on Friday evening, the office of DepEd Usec. Toni Umali branded as utterly false a viral Facebook post with his photo and a message that pokes fun at teachers who are fat.


To all those who care for DepEd Usec. Toni and our family: Please help us inform everybody about the fake news—fake Facebook accounts, pages and posts concerning DepEd Usec. Toni,” the office appealed to the public.

“These are ALL LIES and we will take legal action against those responsible for these criminal actions,” it said.


The DepEd office was referring to this Facebook post that was published by a dubious “Palarong Pambansa” page that was just created recently.

As of writing, the post has garnered more than 5,800 likes and or reactions as well as more than 8,000 shares. /jpv
