ABC5 summoned by MTRCB over ‘Wowowillie’ episode
MANILA, Philippines— Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) on Thursday summoned ABC-5 to a gender-sensitivity and decorum inquiry next week over an episode of “Wowowillie” aired on February 28, MTRCB chair Eugenio Villareal told the INQUIRER.
“Wowowillie” is hosted by Willie Revillame.
Alleged matter complained of the time when a female talent was castigated on air; before the same female talent mentioned something unsavoury about a talent of another network; also to be inquired into is over-all portrayal of women in the show.
