MTRCB called out the attention of ABS-CBN officials after receiving negative feedback and complaints on the network’s reality program Pinoy Big Brother 737.
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board seeks the attention of ABS-CBN officilas for complaints about its on-going show PBB 737. The complaint is said to be related to the alleged bromance between 18-year-old Kenzo Gutierrez and 12-year-old Bailey Thomas May inside the Pinoy Big Brother house.
In a letter issued by the MTRCB, the board summoned PBB 737 officials including Business Unit Head Raymond Dizon, Production Managers Cynthia Jordan and Merce Gonzales, Program Producer Charmaine Estrera, Director John Holl and others.
We are writing because of the numerous feedback and complaints we have been receiving in connection with your television program Pinoy Big Brother 737 aired over ABS-CBN Channel 2, as well as over Sky Premium Channel 85.
In this connection, and further to our developmental mandate to ensure that the best interest of the children are given primary consideration, we would like to invite you to a developmental conference on 09 July 2015, at 2:00 p.m., at the MTRCB Adjudication Room, MTRCB Building, No. 18, Timog Avenue, Quezon City.
In the said conference, we would like to know what safety measures you have in place so as to guarantee that no participant in your program is exposed to situations, challenges and experiences which may be prejudicial to his or her well-being or which may have a negative impact on the youth and other audiences who will be watching your show.
Last week, Kenzo and Bailey were a hot topic on social media after photos and videos displaying bromance inside Kuya’s house spread online.
The show addressed the controversial Kenzo and Bailey issue with Dr. Randy Dellosa, PBB resident psychologist, clarifying that boys relationship is only “brotherly love.”
