The Twitter account of Kalyeserye star Maine ‘Yaya Dub’ Mendoza, was hacked early Tuesday morning, November 3.

“Sorry po if napadaan kami sa account ni yayadub, ibabalik din namin to sa tunay na may-ari…” read a tweet on Maine’s account from hackers who introduced themselves to be Anonymous Philippines.

Anonymous Philippines is known for their cyber attacks on government websites to help advance their advocacies and other internet issues. On their Facebook page, it says: Anonymous is not a group, Anonymous is not a club. Anonymous is an idea, and ideas are bulletproof. We cannot be killed, we cannot be silenced, we cannot be destroyed. You cannot stop us. The corrupt fear us. The honest support us. The heroic join us. We are Anonymous.

At 7am, November 3, the hackers stated on their Facebook page that they already returned the Twitter account to Mendoza and claimed that they only did it to send their message to everyone. They again apologized to Mendoza and said that they hoped she will understand their purpose.

to all ‪#‎AlDub‬ fans,
paumanhin po sa pag gamit namin sa account ni YAYA DUB. wala po kaming masamang intensyon.
we use the internet to communicate with you.
nais lang namin magparating ng mahalagang mensahe.
hindi ito ang tamang panahon para pagtalunan kung bakit namin ginawa ang isang bagay. siguro ang dapat nyong isipin e kung ano yung nagtulak sa amin para gawin yun.
HINDI NYO PO KAMI KAAWAY.
Ms.Maine, ma’am, pasensya na po idol. alam po namin na isa ka sa mga unang makakaintindi sa amin at salamat. smile emoticon
tama na ang pagtatalo. lahat ng bagay may dahilan.
umaasa po kami na dumating yung ‪#‎TamangPanahon‬ upang gumising tayo sa mga hindi magandang nangyayari sa paligid.
lahat po tayo may magagawa kung sama-sama.
PS. naibalik na po ang account ni meng katulad ng plano.
