MTRCB to probe "irresponsible" stripping scene in On the Wings of Love
Mountains out of molehills?
(SPOT.ph) It all started in an On the Wings of Love episode that aired last week, where Clark (James Reid) performed a striptease while wearing a police uniform during the bridal shower for his wife, Leah (Nadine Lustre). Naturally, the scene delighted JaDine fans —but it also irked some PNP officers.

The Police Community Relations Group tweeted a response (above), while a police officer named Geoff Lim took to his Facebook page to call the scene "irresponsible" and "infuriating" because their uniform was a "symbol of authority."
In a statement, Kane Errol Choa, Head of Corporate Communications for ABS-CBN, apologized for the scene and clarified that there was no intention to disrespect the PNP uniform. They also assured audiences that "it will not happen again."
Still, the controversy wasn't over. According to Inquirer.net, the MTRCB has launched an investigation, with Chairman Eugenio Villareal confirming that they have already sent out invitations for dialogue between ABS-CBN and the PNP. The meeting was set for January 25. ABS-CBN has yet to respond to the news.
