After shortly hacking Maine Mendoza's Twitter account, the group of hackers, who identified themselves as Anonymous Philippines, released an official statement.
On their first statement, Anonymous Philippines said: “We don't have any malicious intent towards the said individual or any programs pertaining to that person.
“We just wanted to send a message to the public, and using Maine's account is one of the easiest way we could find.”
The group also promised to return the access on Maine's Twitter account.
Later on, another statement was released, wherein the group stressed to AlDub Nation: “HINDI NYO PO KAMI KAAWAY.”
Anonymous Philippines also reiterated: “[W]e use the internet to communicate with you. [N]ais lang namin magparating ng mahalagang mensahe.”
The group of hackers also apologized to Maine.
“Ms.Maine, ma'am, pasensya na po idol. alam po namin na isa ka sa mga unang makakaintindi sa amin at salamat.”
The Twitter messages posted on Maine's account by Anonymous Philippines have already been deleted.
