To Whom It May Concern:

I am an avid viewer of ABS CBN and I am very well up-to-date regarding their shows.
Without any doubt, I am a Kapamilya. However, last August 03, 2009, an incident
happened when Wowowee Host Willie Revillame blurted out comments when a video of
Pres. Cory’s cortege appeared on the screen.

While a contestant was dancing for the talent portion, a snippet of Pres. Cory
Aquino’s cortege was shown on the screen. But Willie did not cut short the dancing
portion. Instead, he let the contestant finish her routine. After that, he blurted
out comments regarding the video of Pre. Cory’s cortege. He said:

“Kung ganyan, pakita na lang natin ‘yan. Kasi nagsasaya kami dito, tapos… Masakit
sa akin ‘yan, e. Nagsasalita ako dito… ‘yan, please. Sana maintindihan n’yo.
Nagsasaya kami dito, papakita n’yo sa amin yun ang… di ba? Hindi tama, e. Okey?
Hindi ba?”

“Pangit! Hindi ho maganda sa atin. Nagsasalita, ipinapakita yung kabaong ni Tita
Cory, hindi ba? Papano kami makapagsasaya, nahihirapan kami? I’m sorry ho, ha. Pero
ako, totoo ako, e. ‘Wag n’yo akong pagagalitan, kasi totoo ang gusto kong malaman…

“Pagkatapos ng show, ipakita n’yo ang gusto n’yong palabas. Kasi itong Wowowee,
gusto ko… Hindi ba, at alam din ni Tita Cory ‘yan dahil napasaya rin siya ng show
na ito na laging masaya dito, ok?”

Some may argue that Willie’s intention was good, but I rather find these statements
rude and arrogant. Wowowee and Revillame is known by millions of Filipino viewers
and the show is even watched across several countries through TFC. To react in such
way is downright arrogant and disrespectful to the former President Corzaon Aquino.
I know that it was a bad taste for ABS-CBN to show a snippet of the funeral on
Wowowee, but it was worst for Revillame to react that way.

Willie have chosen to let the contestant dance instead of cutting short her act and
give way to the coverage of the cortege. Willie have chosen to blurt out his rude
comments ON-AIR instead of Off-cam. In short, Willie have chosen to have fun instead
of giving way to the funeral of Pres. Corazon Aquino. So they’d rather have fun
instead of pay our respects to our democracy icon? That was not a good example to
our youth today.

Was it really hard for him to be humble and human? I believe that this is not the
first time that he aired his views and rather arrogant comments On-air. He
embarasses his staff, makes fun of the contestants, and arrogantly act on TV almost
everyday. Pres. Aquino taught us humility, and Revillame is showing us the exact
opposite: arrogance.

This time, Willie’s statement should be condemed not only by the public, but by the
management of ABS-CBN as well. It also creates a public outrage in the internet
forums, chatting boards, and online-newspapers. Majority have negative reactions and
have condemned Willie Revillame’s brutal statements.

With this, I am calling the attention of the management of ABS-CBN to stop the
�€œarrogant act�€� of Willie Revillame on National TV program and
reprimand him because of his actions. Willie Revillame had been very disrespectful
to the Pres. Cory Aquino’s cortege, Filipinos icon of democracy. It was also worst
for your company that your own employee criticize you on national television instead
on off the air conversations.

I am calling the attention of the MTRCB to be more vigilant, so that this lowest
form of personal attack by a tv showbiz talk show host, for her/his personal agenda,
will not happen again

I am calling the PANA to stop supporting Wowowee until they axe or reprimand Willie
Revillame due to his actions. With him as one of the hosts, your product does not
project a positive image to the public.

The public and TFC subscribers deserve better programming, and we deserve better
than the likes of Willie Revillame.

Joey De Leon’s Tagalog Poem.

Wala na sa piling ng mga Pilipino,

Tinig ng awiting Mga Kababayan Ko,

At lumisan na rin noong isang Sabado,

Inang nagpalipad sa awiting Bayan Ko.

Ako'y sumasaludo, paalam Pangulo,

May isa 'kong lihim, kay tagal itinago,

Sa lahat nang inabot kong mga namuno,

Tanging ikaw lang sa luha ko'y nagpatulo.

Marami ang nalungkot sa iyong pagyao,

Magalang ang lahat at puno ng respeto,

Nagpasalamat pa nga Kapamilya sa 'yo,

Dahil kanilang himpilan naibalik mo.

* * *

Subalit ano itong nabalitaan ko?

Nangyari noong Lunes, a-tres ng Agosto,

Habang inililipat ang mga labi mo,

Ika'y parang nabastos sa isang TV show.

At ang napakasaklap at masakit dito,

Ang nambastos pa'y kapamilya ng anak mo,

Napanood ito ng tao at publiko,

Kakaunti na nga, ngunit lahat nahilo.

Sabi ng TV host na mainit ang ulo

Pagkakita sa video na kanyang kasalo,

"Sandali, meron akong ano. sa'ting ano.

Hindi naman sa ano," nagkaanu-ano!

Ayon sa Internet, meron pa s'yang nasambit,

"Sana pakitanggal muna 'yan sa'ting traffic."

At 'di maaalis sa iyong pag-iisip,

Ang parada ng patay ang pinaliligpit!

At dagdag pa daw ng naghahari-harian,

"I don't think na dapat n'yong ipakita iyan."

Nasaan naman ang paggalang, o nasaan?

Mga sinasabi natin minsa'y pag-ingatan.

At 'di pa nangimi nang sumunod na araw,

Pinilit pa ring ginawa n'ya ay tama raw,

Mga nakarinig 'di na nakagalaw

At ayon sa iba sila na la'y napa-wow!

". Pero ako, totoo 'ko eh . ", sabi kuno,

Totoo nga at totoo ring walang modo,

Pwede namang sabihin itong pa-sikreto,

Kaya't wala na rin mga paliwanag mo.

"Kung ganyan, pakita na lang 'yan!", ang hamon pa,

Para bang ang prusisyon nila-"lang - lang" lang ba,

Ang pangasiwaan ay pinapili pa n'ya,

Sumunod ang himpilan, nung August 5 wala s'ya.

May mga komentong pwede nang pang-harapan,

"On camera" baga sa TV ang tawag d'yan

At kung sensitibo man ang gustong bitawan,

Pagpasok ng commercial, hintayin mo na lang.

Matutong magbaba muna ng mikropono

At saka idikta lahat ng iyong gusto,

Lagi kang mataas lahat daw takot sa 'yo,

Ratings lang ang mababa - totoo ba ito?

The breaking news breaks your heart - at 'yan ang bawi mo,

Nang mahalata mong sumablay ang pasok mo,

Pero sigurado ika'y maa-abswelto,

'Di ba ikaw rin ang may-ari ng network n'yo?

Nung Hueves nag-apologize sa diario naman,

O, akala ko ba wala kang kasalanan,

Tapos ng angalan, sunod paliwanagan -

COMPLAIN before you EXPLAIN ka na naman!

O ito kaya ay isa na namang "glitch" lang,

Tulad ng "two-zero" 'di na natin nalaman,

O ito ay maliwanag na kabobohan?

Sa tingin ng marami, mahirap lusutan.

Ang sabi ng iba - istupidong mayabang,

At giit ng iba - istupidong mayaman,

Mayaman man o mayabang ang tiyak diyan,

Napakayaman n'ya sa kaistupiduhan. 

Buti pa ang apat na honor guards ni Cory -

Sina Malab, Laguindan, Rodriguez, Cadiente,

Walong oras tumayo sa ulan at viaje,

Ang lahat ay tiniis at walang sinabi.

Samantalang ikaw na may bubong sa ulo,

Komportable ka lang sa malamig na studio,

Nang kapirasong libing sa TV sumalo,

Angal at inis ang sumambulat sa iyo.

Maaari din namang pabayaan na s'ya,

Subalit ang nangyari'y mabigat talaga,

Namayapang pangulo'y huling paalam na,

'Di mo pa pinagbigyan . hoy, nag-iisa ka!

At nais ko lang sabihin at ipagyabang

Sa mahigit na s'yam na libong tanghalian,

Sa limang pangulong sa Bulaga'y dumaan,

Kahit isa wala kaming nilapastangan.

  1. well bro… you are right in everything you said… but i doubt ABS CBN will dump willie… ABS has no concern for peoples concern…. they only care about their business and how they can make a lot of money. in this case… malabong matanggal si willie… dapat ng stampede pa lang tinanggal na sya sa istasyon dahil sya ang nagpakalat ng maling balita na magbibigay ng malaking pera sa unang mga tao sa ultra… he took advantage of the people’s poverty to lure them to go to the show as if he’s playing with them… thus causing the stampede. The station is so bias because all they care about is business…
    It is my opinion that we call not only for the ouster of willie but also for the fairness and transparency of the network where he belongs.

  2. Hey Jose thanks for an astute observation, I although I didnt post the email, I relate with the sentiment of the email sender. On the height of the incident even a couple of AM radio stations were calling willie’s show of ‘Magaspang na ugali” as disrespectful. It didn’t matter ’cause he rakes millions of pesos in the show, which attracts the desperately impoverished, and he bathes in ecstasy of having power and influence over a network — is he god and answer to poverty? Now, to make things simmer down he is in hiatus for 15 days, an evident move to retain his services in the network. So I guess we will still have our dose of daily willie antics. Its just just sad how money can twist morality.

  3. well bro… as i have said… sa aking opinyon mukang pera talaga ang mga lopez (ABS CBN)… it have been proven already na talagang natatapalan ng pera ang moralidad sa station na yan… they have other companies na napatunayan ng nagnanakaw sa tao tulad ng MERALCO at FIRSTGEN na nagpapataw ng overpriced power rates sa tao…
    so its no longer surprising na hindi nila alisin ang isang asong tulad ni willie… ang kaibahan nga lang… yung AMO ang sunud sunuran sa ASO.
    tsk tsk iba na talaga ang mundo ngayun…
