Inquirer.net reports that its sister company, the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI), issued on Thursday, June 6, "an apology for the offensive Pugad Baboy cartoon strip" by Pol Medina Jr. that mentioned lesbians as being among the student population of St. Scholastica’s College.

 

According to the report, PDI's statement revealed that based on the investigation by the paper's Reader's Advocate, the controversial cartoon strip "had been rejected for its insensitivity when it was submitted in April 2013, but, due to a mix-up in the comics section, was picked up for publication." The paper said that although Pugad Baboy will not appear on the paper "pending further investigation," Medina has not been fired over the incident and "remains a contributor."
