MTRCB summons Till I Met You over JaDine's love scene
People thought the scene was unfit for television.
(SPOT.ph) The MTRCB has summoned the heads of ABS-CBN's LGBT-themed Till I Met You, but not for the reasons you might think. The conference on November 10 stemmed from an October 25 episode where James Reid and Nadine Lustre had a "steamy love scene" at the back of a car.
According to the MTRCB's letter, audiences deemed the "daring love-making scene" as "unfit for television," despite its SPG rating. Viewers also complained about the October 26 episode where the line "sex lang 'yan" was uttered "in disregard of the institution of marriage."

The MTRCB also received complaints about the October 27 and 28 episodes had a PG advisory despite alleged "sexual teasing" and "outrightly [sic] sexually-charged bath-related scenes."
In January 2016, the MTRCB probed JaDine's earlier TV show, On the Wings of Love, when James Reid stripped wearing a PNP uniform. The show eventually apologized. As for TIMY, the cast and crew have yet to make a statement.
