ABS-CBN's Official Statement on MMK 'Blusa' Episode

ABS-CBN's Official Statement on MMK 'Blusa' EpisodeABS-CBN has finally released a statement regarding the authenticity of the MMK "Blusa" episode. In that episode, Angel Locsin played a summa cum laude graduate of UPLB. Her character wasn't able to find a job and ended up being a stripper in a club in Manila. At the end of the story, she went crazy. With the help of ABS-CBN, she's now in a mental institution.

Here is ABS-CBN's official statement: "Storytelling in Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) is always based on narratives sent to the program by people who want to share their stories. MMK decides to go into production of the chosen stories, ONLY after the letter sender has signed a waiver attesting to the authenticity of the story sent.

MMK recognizes that a number of UPLB alumni are questioning the truthfulness of one letter sender who claims that her sister, the main character in “Blusa” essayed by Ms. Angel Locsin, was indeed a UPLB BS AgriBusiness, summa cum laude graduate, who could not find a job and ended up as a stripper.

When MMK found out about the adverse reactions, the MMK production group went back to the letter sender to inform her of the issue raised and to re-verify her account. She reiterated that she stands by her story.

Be that as it may, and after careful deliberation, MMK realizes that its writing and research pool may have been remiss in one thing----verifying with UPLB the veracity of the indicated facts of the letter sender. Having said that, MMK sincerely apologizes for the oversight.

MMK always aims for truth and excellence. This incident may have deviated from its tight norm, but rest assured that MMK will continue to serve its publics with utmost care and respect."

ang sulat na ito ay nagpapakita ng isang malaking kakulangan o katangahan sa parte ng abs cbn. alam naman nilang may matatamaang institusyon sa mga ipapalabas nilang istorya, bakit hindi muna i-verify ang mga sinabi nung letter sender? tutal, nag name drop na rin naman sila ng school and course sa show, dapat naisip nilang kailangan extra careful sila sa mga ipapalabas nila sa show. dapat totoo ang mga ipapalabas nila. at hindi naman ako naniniwalang ganito katanga ang abs cbn. kaya naisip ko, baka nga mas prioritized pa rin nila ang pag-sensationalize ng lahat. syempre, mas patok yun at mas maraming manonood...
