MANILA – Internationally acclaimed award-winning theatre actress and singer, Lea Salonga – best known for her spectacular performances on Broadway and as a coach on “The Voice of the Philippines” – expressed her dismay and anger toward those responsible for creating Facebook accounts using her daughter, Nicole Chien’s name.

On Thursday, the “Miss Saigon” star said on her Twitter account: “Use my daughter’s name to get my attention, and you will be cursed until the end of days. You are a sorry excuse for a human.”

She also encouraged her 2.6 million followers to report and “unlike” the accounts, as she had done. The fake accounts were subsequently closed.

Messages of encouragement flooded in from Salonga’s followers, to which she said: “To everyone tweeting messages of support for whatever reason, thank you. I can’t reply to them all, but know that I’ve read them all.”
