Tarps of underwear-clad Anne Curtis and Angel Locsin dismantled by MMDA
(SPOT.ph) The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) yesterday, July 11, ordered tarpaulins of actresses Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis along Boni-EDSA to be removed, reports ABS-CBN News. In a statement, the MMDA said that the tarps violated the National Building Code and displayed offensive content.
According to the MMDA statement, the tarps showed both actresses clad in bras. This dismantling came after Mandaluyong Mayor Benhur Abalos last week requested the removal of the Bench Body billboards along EDSA-Guadalupe that featured seven members of the Philippine Volcanoes in their underwear.
In Twitter yesterday, Curtis, however, denied she posed for ads in only her underwear. "Hello I don’t think I have any billboards along Boni-Edsa to begin with. Most specially in a bra :) I think @MMDA may be wrong :p." She followed up her tweet today with "You know what’s funny? All my billboards are still up. Including the ones on Boni-Edsa. Hmmm I wonder who made the official statement? #FAIL."
According to the report, the MMDA will also tear down similar "illegal" billboards along EDSA-Trinoma and EDSA-Pasay. MMDA chair Francis Tolentino has already filed eight cases against three billboard operators for maintaining billboards in Quezon City that violate the National Building Code and for missing the necessary permits.
