Recently, a concerned netizen noticed that ABS-CBN’s top-rating primetime series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” edited and used photos from the Dantes’. The issue reached Dingdong Dantes who immediately called out the show for the photo misuse.
Apparently, the incident was not a one-time thing. The long-running show used two of the Dantes family photos. The first edited photo was a photo of Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, and Zia Dantes and it was a photo during Zia’s baptism. The second edited photo was Dingdong and Marian’s wedding photo.

The issue shocked “Ang Probinsyano” star Alice Dixson when she heard the news from PEP. The second edited photo from the Dantes’ was used in one of Alice’s scenes on the show. The actress admitted that she knew it was an edited photo from a real-life couple, however, she had no clue that it was the Dantes’ photo originally.
Furthermore, Alice shared that she would’ve reacted the same way if it were her wedding photo. She also mentioned that there were no traces of Dingdong and Marian on the photo beside their clothes, which made it unnoticeable.
“Ako humihingi ako ng paumanhin, Dong, if our production made a mistake like that.”
Alice thanked the interviewer for letting her know about the photo misuse. She gave her word that she will act upon it if ever the show would again misuse any photo.

Because of what happened, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” also gave an apology through a press statement. The show apologized to Dingdong Dantes and his family for what happened and assured that investigations about the incident are in place to prevent it from happening again.
“The production team commissioned a third-party contractor to create the photo props used in the program. It was not aware that the original of the photographs used were those from Mr Dantes’ wedding and baptism of his daughter.”
