Uh oh, Pangako Sa 'Yo is in trouble with the MTRCB
Find out why
(SPOT.ph) The nightly Pangako Sa 'Yo may be conquering the ratings game, but the hit telenovela has just hit a snag.
Reports say that the show is facing a complaint from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) over a line spoken by Pilar Pilapil (who plays Dona Benita Buenavista) in the May 29 episode. In a scene, Dona Benita told her son Eduardo (Ian Veneracion), "Kung pampalipas-libog lang iyan, that’s okay. Go ahead."
This didn't sit well with the board, who deemed the dialogue insinuated that "it is okay to use a woman for the mere purpose of satisfying one's fleshly desires even if he is already engaged to marry another woman."
The statement continued, "The scene, if left unexplained, also cuts into the dignity of the woman and the integrity of an impending marriage—which is a protected institution."
The MTRCB was scheduled to meet with top ABS-CBN executives today, June 9.
