MANILA - A larger number of social media users are siding with actor-host Vhong Navarro in light of the mauling incident that happened in Taguig last week, according to an online poll conducted yesterday.

On Tuesday, "TV Patrol" opened a poll on its official website (link: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/tvpatrollive) asking netizens which party involved in the mauling incident do they believe more.

"Ilang araw matapos ang insidente, nagsalita na ang magkabilang panig sa kaso ng pambubugbog umano kay Vhong Navarro. Kanino ka mas naniniwala?" it asked.

Navarro earlier filed criminal complaints against the group of businessman Cedric Lee, who allegedly attacked him inside a condominium unit at the Bonifacio Global City last week.

Lee, sibling Bernice Lee, and model Deniece Cornejo are now facing charges of serious physical injuries, grave threat, grave coercion, unlawful arrest, blackmail, and serious illegal detention, which is a non-bailable offense.

Earlier on Tuesday, Lee accused Navarro of "twisting the facts," saying the host's account of the incident is an exaggeration.

Cornejo, meanwhile, maintained that Navarro attempted to rape her and that she will file the appropriate charges against him.

The "TV Patrol" poll opened by 6:10 p.m. Tuesday and was closed the same the day at 7:35 p.m.

Out of a total of 6,239 replies, 97.37 percent answered "kay Vhong Navarro," while only 2.63 percent chose "kay Cedric/Deniece."

The case continues to be monitored by social media users, as more facts are being revealed to the public.
