Fullido swore before Prosecutors' Office of Quezon City, suing Cheryl C. Favila, former ABS-CBN News Executive, and Maricar P. Asprec, ABS-CBN News Segment Producer, for an alleged sexual harassment, claiming that the two have sent Fullido "text messages that were loaded with sexual innuendos, which amounted to requests for sexual favors," read in Atty. Marvin Aceron Facebook post.

Things became difficult for Fullido for her work and struggled almost three years after she rejected the alleged favor.

Fullido also filed libel cases for the two ABS-CBN executives, Cecilia Drilon, Venancio Borromeo and news reporter Marie Lozano for an alleged 'besmirching' her reputation. Fullido claimed that when she filed the sexual harassment complaint agaist Favila and Asprec, the three made a statement that Fullido was only doing it " to leverage her employment status with ABS-CBN. 

Fullido in her Complaint Affidavit also said Drilon resorted to victim shaming and imputed statement that Fullido deserved to be harassed, since Fullido allegedly, was willing to wear a bikini with an inflatable pool with bubbles to shove up the ratings of TV patrol, a leading daily news program," the lawyer added.

In response to Fullido's complaint, ABS-CBN issue a statement,"ABS-CBN respects the right of news anchor and reporter Gretchen Marie Fullido to bring her sexual harassment complaint to the courts. Now that she has filed charges with the Quezon City Prosecutor's Office, we expect all parties to allow the legal process to take its course". " ABS-CBN takes sexual harassment seriously and doest not condone such acts in the workplace or by its employees."

"When Ms. Fullido filed an administrative case against a supervising producer and a segment producer for alleged sexual harassment in November 2017, the company took prompt action on the administrative complaint and decided based on the evidence presented."
