ABS-CBN denies perpetrating demolition job against Willie Revillame

March 14, 2021 Uncategorized

ABS-CBN has denied any
involvement in the provocation
of various violent reactions and
investigation on Willie Revillame
and his program on TV5. Willie’s
camp, particularly his legal
counsel Atty. Leonard De Vera,
insinuated that the Kapamilya
network started the big
controversy regarding the
episode in Willing Willie wherein
a young boy danced ‘ala-macho
dancer’ and given a ten
thousand peso prize, now
perceived by different sectors as
child abuse.
The official statement released
last April 13 by Bong Osorio,
head of ABS-CBN Corporate
Communications, reads, “We
categorically deny that ABS-CBN
has anything to do with the Jan-
Jan episode. Records speak for
itself. We are not a complainant
in this case, and have not made
any public statement about it.
Indeed, it is incredible that ABS-
CBN, as insinuated by Atty.
Leonard De Vera, can possibly
have control over the countless
groups and individuals who have
expressed their indignation over
the issue, including Facebook,
Twitter, major advertisers,
government bodies, the church,
academic communities, among
others.
It is a general accusation bereft
of any details and is obviously
meant to divert the issue by
dragging ABS-CBN’s name.”
Willie has decided to temporarily
pull out his show from airing
while the incident is being
investigated by numerous
agencies which include the Movie
and Television Ratings and
Classification Board (MTRCB), the
Commission on Human Rights,
and the Kapisanan ng mga
Broadcasters sa Pilipinas (KBP).
