The Converge Telecommunication employee who posted a rape threat against Liza Soberano has issued an apology following the actress’ remarks that she will not let it pass.
On September 6, Liza Soberano aired her frustration as an “unhappy customer” of Converge Telecommunication.
Another internet provider, PLDT, then came to her rescue by installing a faster internet.
Liza’s tweet and PLDT’s move went viral and birthed memes online.
On Sunday, Liza vowed to go after a certain Melissa Olaes who, in a comment, threatened to have Liza raped.
“[W]ala tayong magagawa, wala ng trabaho, kaya di bale ng masira ang image, magkapera lang. [S]arap ipa-rape sa mga… ewan,” Olaes’s Facebook comment which was screenshot and posted on Twitter reads.
On Sunday, Liza replied to a tweet regarding the threat saying, “Don’t worry we won’t let this one pass. They know my address.”

Hours after Liza’s tweet, the employee issued a lengthy apology on her Facebook account.
According to Olaes, she’s been receiving loads of hurtful messages and comments.
Olaes noted that she knows that rape is not a laughing matter and it is a sensitive matter which she should have thoroughly thought-out before she commented.
“Naging insensitive ako at nawalan ng tamang judgment. Dahil dito, ako ay humihingi ako ng pauanhin sa lahat ng nasaktan sa isang maling biro na nasabi ko,” Olaes wrote.
She also made it clear that Converge does not have anything to do with her Facebook activities.
“Ipinaparating ko rin ang aking paghingi ng paumanhin sa aking kumpanya dahil sa naging epekto nito sa kanilang imahe,” she said.
