GMA News Online reports that GMA Network is set to file charges against disc jockey-TV host Mo Twister for an allegedly "leaked" YouTube video which appeared to show Mo crying and talking about his ex-girlfriend Rhian Ramos. What made the said video particularly incendiary was the alleged reference to abortion.

ABS-CBN’s The Buzz sought the opinion of a computer expert for their report on Mo’s tearful YouTube video.


GMA News Online reports that GMA Network is set to file charges against disc jockey-TV host Mo Twister for an allegedly "leaked"  YouTube video which appeared to show Mo crying and talking about his ex-girlfriend Rhian Ramos. What made the said video particularly incendiary was the alleged reference to abortion.

 

In a statement released last Friday, December 2, GMA Network declared: "GMA Network is going to file charges against Mo Twister for malicious and false imputations against the network in his video posted this afternoon on YouTube." (Note: The video was actually posted on November 28 by a user named PrettyJenny55.) Early Friday, December 2, there were only more than 300 views of the video. As of 9:19 a.m. today, December 5, there are already 361,838 views.


According to the GMA News Online report, as the news about the video spread, Mo posted this message on his Twitter account on Friday, December 2: "I know you all have so many questions about what happened. I can’t give any clear answers right now because I too am wondering how it all got here. I know I sold many of my things, including computers [whose contents] I had erased. Apparently, someone ’repaired’ the erased files/hard drive and uploaded some personal files of mine. I feel terrible about it." (Note: Upon checking Mo’s Twitter account, the said tweet is no longer available.)

 

PEP.ph reports that on Sunday, December 4, Mo gave his "final statement" on the subject on the local radio show Showbiz Rampa, which is hosted by Noel Ferrer along with  Dehins Trillo and Boy Dale on 103.5 WOW FM (the sister company of Magic 89.9, where Mo had a show).

 

PEP.ph cited Mo’s statement, wherein he said: "I was disappointed about the video. I’m saddened about the rumors of its upload. Most of all, I’m ashamed at myself for the loss of our child. It was something I never wanted to happen. It was meant for me to always remind myself that we paid an enormous sacrifice for this job and this relationship. They thought a lawyer was needed to aid in our breakup, that I was asked to surrender all of this ’proof’ [as they called it] to them for it to be destroyed. I naturally gave in to their request, because for the second time, I chose my girlfriend over the memory of our child. I specifically asked them to not destroy it, to please return it to me 50 years from now when all this showbiz priorities and ’branding’ wouldn’t mean so much anymore. Along with my files, they took my computer and erased it in front of me. This was all documented by her legal staff."

PEP.ph added that Mo said he was aware that "GMA would like to prosecute me for this." So, he said, "I would like to apologize to the network for putting them in a bad light. This decision to have an abortion was not something the network instructed us to do." Finally, MO also apologized to Rhian for their "rollercoaster relationship" ending "the way it did." Mo said, "I will never, ever agree to take the life of a child again. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t my body or my choice."
