CLAIM: Vivamax is holding auditions for mature roles.
THE FACTS: According to our tipline, multiple troll pages disguised as Vivamax Films have been posting a casting call in which they are looking for individuals, ages 18+ to act for mature roles. The post gained thousands of shares and reactions before being deleted.
The Viva Artist Agency (VVA) has already clarified that this is false and that any official casting calls will only be posted on their social media accounts.
WHY WE FACT-CHECKED THIS: Posts like these create controversy which may harm the company’s image. Vivamax is also famous for carrying Darryl Yap’s films including his soft porn attempts although his two historical revisionist movies “Maid in Malacanang” and “Martyr or Murderer” are carried by the mother outfit, Viva Films. This “fake news” is being seen as free publicity for MoM.
