A fan of the Dantes family asks if Kapamilya show “Ang Probinsyano” has permission to use DongYan and Zia’s photos.
An observation tweeted by an account dedicated to Zia Dantes – the daughter of Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes – called out the Kapamilya teleserye “Ang Probinsyano” for editing and using the photos of Dingdong, Marian and Zia Dantes in their show.
The fan shared a clip showing the edited photos of the Dantes family.
“Zia’s photo was unethically used by Ang Probinsyano in Nov 2017. In last night’s episode, DongYan’s photo was edited and used again by the show. Were the photos of Dingdong, Marian and Zia used & edited without permission? Dear Ang Probinsyano, strike two na po kayo ah.,” posted by Zia’s fan page on twitter.
Video showed that the first incident happened last November 2017 and the second incident was on August 8, 2018.

Faces of Dong and Yan were changed to Joko Diaz and Mickey Ferriols. Zia was referred to as a mmber of Joko’s family.
