THE management of Pegasus, the Ultimate Men’s Club, vehemently denies social media posts about a government official who was allegedly seen inside the establishment on March 16, 2020
"Beware of fake news circulating on social media that a government official was seen inside our establishment on March 16 when in fact we issued a notice of temporary suspension of operations from March 14, 2020 until April 14, 2020," Pegasus said in a statement.
Pegasus said it temporarily suspended its operations after the announcement of the Community Quarantine in the National Capital Region by President Rodrigo Duterte on March 11, 2020 as a measure to address the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
"Unfortunately, information on social media regarding a government official who was allegedly seen at the establishment on March 16, 2020 has started to circulate through a fake announcement that used the establishment’s logo. Please beware of fake news," Pegasus said.
The management of Pegasus said it would like to state on record that it abhors the use of fake information as irresponsible and damaging, not only to the company but also to the people whose names were mentioned in those malicious information.
“Beware of fake news,” Pegasus reiterated in its statement.
