Two controversial videos of Xander Ford surfaced online because of allegedly body-shaming Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo.
Today, October 30, he filed a case against the two uploaders.
He revealed that he was depressed because of lost shows, endorsements, and events.
Xander Ford (formerly known as Marlou Arizala) went to the Philippine National Police (PNP)’s Anti-Cybercrime Group in Camp Crame today, October 30, to file a cyberbullying case against two individuals.
The 19-year-old internet sensation filed a case against Dave Alvarez and Angelo Rozol, the two individuals who uploaded his old video. This old video went viral after he commented about Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo’s legs.
Although he recently denied that he’s the person behind the controversial viral video, another one surfaced with the same voice but showing his face (then Marlou Arizala before his cosmetic surgery) while on a video call with someone else.

Xander Ford said he became depressed after the video surfaced. He also lost TV shows, endorsements, and events because of the controversy.
Na-depress po ako dahil sa mga isyu or sa video na in-upload po nila. Mahirap. Nawalan po ako ng trabaho, nawalan po ako ng career dahil po sa maling paratang po nila sa ‘kin. Gusto ko lang pong matapos na po ito.
He also revealed that Dave Alvarez is not a friend but just someone taking a video of him.
Yun nga yung video na unang kumalat, pinagmulan ng lahat. Pinost niya hanggang sa nag-trending, nalaman ng KathNiel fans.
