Anton del Rosario, Simon Greatwich and Neil Etheridge Removed as Dating Site Endorsers Due to 'Rape Scandal'?

Philippine Azkals members Anton del Rosario, Simon Greatwich and Neil Etheridge, who were chosen as endorsers of dating website, have been pulled out as the site endorsers in the midst of "rape" controversy surrounding them right now. Justify Full
In conjunction with the site's launch last July 5, a promo wherein a lucky members of the site will have the chance to date the three Azkals was also launched. But several days after that, Allison Conde, LoveRepublik's Public Relation's Manager, posted a comment saying they have discontinued the promo because of the said "scandal".

Here's the full copy of the said comment from Allison Conde:


We'd like to thank you for sharing this to your readers. And with that, we also take into responsibility to share with you the latest update on the promo.

In our personal experience dealing with Simon Greatwich, Anton del Rosario and Neil Etheridge, we found them to be a bunch of fun-loving and good-hearted young men. The professionalism they displayed during the production stage is commendable. We hope to believe that nothing of the severe allegations posted about them are true. We sincerely hope that the boys will rise above this issue.

We at feel very sorry about the recent crisis the three of our friends and endorsers are going through. These personalities were recently launched as brand ambassadors of LoveRepublik, the first Philippine online social network that guarantees a safe and trustable dating environment. The brand lives by its philosophy of "Finding True Love."

The recent "scandal" that our current endorsers are going through runs opposite to the very DNA of our website. Though pure speculation for now, our company feels than any taint of doubt on the integrity of our platform may not be healthy for our brand.

Effective today, we are discontinuing our tactical promotion, "Win a Date with an Azkal".

To our valued subscribers and friends, a new promotion will be launched very soon in lieu of the latter. Mechanics are currently being drafted so we will have a suitable and more exciting program in the next couple of days.

We would like to believe that this issue will be resolved soon and we are hoping for the best for everyone.
