Robinsons Malls on Sunday shut down misleading photos circulating on social media that show a crowd of people inside one of their malls.
"Robinsons Malls would like to correct the FAKE NEWS circulating on social media showing a crowd of people," their statement on Facebook read.
Their statement clarified that the photo spreading online is "an old photo when one of our provincial malls was made the venue for distribution of financial assistance by the LGU. THE MALL WAS NOT OPENED AT THE TIME."
Robinsons Malls posted their statement accompanied with photos of the actual situation at the mall when it reopened it on Saturday, May 16.
