Vlogger in hot water for using fake ID to pose as airline employee at Davao airport

Date:

A vlogger is in hot water for posing as an airline employee using a fake ID at the Davao International Airport in the Philippines.

The vlogger, whose identity has not been revealed by the police, is facing charges of falsification by a private individual and the use of falsified documents, both of which are punishable under Article 172 of the Revised Penal Code.

According to reports, the vlogger was producing video content and used the fake ID to gain entry into the airport and even boarded a plane using it. However, the flight bound for Manila was delayed when the vlogger announced that he was not a passenger, and it was discovered that he did not have a ticket or a boarding pass, as confirmed by the police’s aviation security unit.

The incident has caused concern among airport authorities, leading the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in Davao to reinforce passenger screening procedures and security protocols to prevent a similar situation from happening again.

This is not the first time that vloggers or social media influencers have faced charges for their actions. In recent years, there have been numerous cases of influencers breaking the law or engaging in reckless behavior for the sake of creating viral content. Some of these stunts have included trespassing on private property, damaging public property, and putting their own lives and the lives of others at risk.

The rise of social media has given individuals the ability to create and share content with millions of people around the world. While this can be a powerful tool for sharing information and promoting positive change, it also comes with significant risks. The pressure to create content that will go viral and gain a large following can lead some individuals to engage in dangerous or illegal activities.

Authorities remind content creators and influencers that it is important for them to remember that they are not above the law and that their actions have consequences. In the case of the vlogger who posed as an airline employee, the charges he is facing could result in fines, imprisonment, or both. Additionally, the incident has caused disruptions for other passengers and has led to increased security measures at the airport.

While there is no doubt that social media can be a powerful tool for communication and self-expression, it is crucial that individuals use it responsibly. This includes respecting the law, other people’s privacy, and the safety of themselves and others. As the old saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility,” and this is especially true in the age of social media.
