Presidential Communications (Government of the Philippines) Facebook page allegedly live-streamed the blockbuster movie, “Logan”. Government watchdog website, The Watchtower Online, picked it up today, June 2, 2017.
Here’s a snippet of the page, which the Watchtower captured earlier today.

Whether or not this is true or edited, we already reached out to the page administrators to confirm the veracity of The Watchtower’s report. The video above only showed “21 minutes” in the timestamp. It would have been much better had the website copied and showed the full URL of the video for reference purposes.
Live-streaming contents is much easier with the advanced platform upgrades pushed by Facebook in the last 2 months. Facebook also implemented its own violence, nudity and piracy and copyright protection features on its live platform. However, the solution being implemented by the social media giant has never been too effective as there have been personal profiles and brand pages that have been pushing live-stream contents which contain copyrighted contents, “freebooted” videos and nudity.
*UPDATE: Tricia Aquino of Interaksyon posted an update regarding the issue, and said that the Presidential Broadcast Staff has apologized for accidentally live-streaming a clip of the movie late Friday morning.
