ABS-CBN issued an apology after getting summoned by the MTRCB over a foul word used an episode of Pangako Sa ‘Yo.
“ABS-CBN apologizes for the strong language used in the May 29 episode of ‘Pangako Sa ‘Yo.’ We recognize our responsibility to our viewers and we will work closely with the MTRCB to prevent it from happening again,” the network said on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board required the ABS-CBN executives to attend the mandatory conference to discuss the controversial dialogue used in the hit soap opera re-make. MTRCB said the line was beyond the PG rating they gave to the show.
According to MRTCB, “the strong language insinuates that it is okay to use a woman for the mere purpose of satisfying one’s fleshly desires even if he is already engaged to marry another woman ate obviously meant for a mature audience.”
“The scene, if left unexplained, also cuts into the dignity of the woman and the integrity of an impending marriage – which is a protected institution under the Constitution,” MTRCB added.
