As much as Kakai Bautista appreciates all the love Hello, Love, Goodbye is getting on social media, she also wants moviegoers to stop violating copyright laws.
Last Thursday, August 1, Kakai thanked everyone who took a moment to give their reactions about the film on social media.
But at the same time, she also asked them to stop sharing screenshots or clips of the films online.

"Diba nga po may advisory naman sa mga sinehan? BAWAL po yun eh," she wrote, referring to a visual reminder of the Anti-Camcording Act of 2010, which gets played before every screening of the film.
The 40-year-old comedy actress, who plays Joy's best friend Sally in the film, also shared a photo indicating where netizens could report sightings of copyright violators.
