Aika Robredo late on Monday, April 11, 2022, rallied supporters of her mother Leni's presidential campaign to focus on their house-to-house sorties, indirectly addressing fake news that one of their senatorial candidates described as a "misogynistic" attack.

#ProtectLeniAndFamily was trending with 15,000 Twitter posts late Monday while "Fake News" had 102,000 posts after Robredo's supporters were warned against misinformation against the eldest of the Vice President's three daughters.

"Tara na! Focus tayo," Aika said in her retweet of a post by one of her mother's celebrity endorsers, actor Jake Ejercito.

Younger sister Tricia replied: "That's my Ate!!!"
