Aika Robredo late on Monday rallied supporters of her mother Leni's presidential campaign to focus on their house-to-house sorties, indirectly addressing fake news that one of their senatorial candidates described as a "misogynistic" attack.

#ProtectLeniAndFamily was trending with 15,000 Twitter posts late Monday while "Fake News" had 102,000 posts after Robredo's supporters were warned against misinformation against the eldest of the Vice President's three daughters.

"Tara na! Focus tayo," Aika said in her retweet of a post by one of her mother's celebrity endorsers, actor Jake Ejercito. Younger sister Tricia replied: "That's my Ate!!!"

Senatorial candidate Chel Diokno called on Google to take down the "misogynostic attacks" against Aika on its platform. "Google should not allow itself to be used for crimes against women," he said on Twitter.

"Simula na ang paninira sa pamilya ni Leni Robredo. Ibig sabihin, palakas na nang palakas. Patuloy nating labanan ang pambabastos dito sa ating lipunan. Ituloy natin ang laban hanggang magtagumpay tayo," senatorial candidate Antonio Trillanes said in a separate tweet.
