Controversial blogger Mocha Uson hit back at actor Edgar Allan Guzman for his outrage on Instagram, concerning Uson’s video post which harshly criticized scenes of his appearance in “Ipaglaban Mo” as “basura” (trash) and “malaswa” (obscene).

The ever feisty Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) member defended herself via a lengthy post yet again on her public Facebook account, Mocha Uson Blog, and answered Guzman point by point.

Wala akong sinabing basura ang programa mo o ang acting po. Sana pinanuod mo muna yung FB LIVE ko bago ka nagsalita (I did not say that the program, let alone your acting, is trash. You should have watched my FB LIVE first before you burst out.),” she said.

She said it’s network “self-regulation” claims which she is totally against.

Ipinalabas ang ‘rape scene’ ng ‘Ipaglaban Mo’ na hindi ni-review ng MTRCB dahil may tinatawag na SELF-REGULATION ang TV NETWORKS na aking tinututulan. Noong ipinalabas ang ‘rape scene’ na ‘yun ay nagkaroon ng NEGATIBONG REAKSYON ANG MGA MANUNUOD at kanilang tinawag ang aking pansin bilang board member ng MTRCB.”

(The ‘rape scenes’ on the said ‘Ipaglaban Mo’ episode were aired without having been reviewed and approved by the MTRCB because of self-regulation by TV networks, which I disapprove of. When that ‘rape scene’ was aired, it roused negative reactions from the audience, and they called my attention as a member of the MTRCB.)

Ang tanong ng mga magulang/manunuod ay kung paano ito nakalusot sa MTRCB at naipalabas sa TV dahil ang violent rape scene na ito ay hindi naaangkop sa kabataan.”

(The question of the parents/viewers is how it got through MTRCB and was allowed on TV, when this violent rape scene does not suit young viewers.)

The newly-seated MTRCB member even lectured that media companies have the responsibility and accountability over the quality of the programs they air, and that viewers’ welfare, especially that of the young ones, should be given prime consideration.

Uson then again told Guzman that he should have watched her video post first, then slammed him for bringing up her past sexy films.

ISA PA, babanggitin mo pa ang dalawang seksing pelikula na ginawa ko noon at ikukumpara mo sa programa mo sa Telebisyon? PARA SA KAALAMAN MO MAGKAIBA ANG PELIKULA AT TELEBISYON,” she said.

(Another thing: you mentioned my two sexy films in the past and compared it to your program on television? For your information, movies and television are two different things.)

She stressed the difference between television and movies, and the audiences both platforms reach. She then hit back at Guzman again through counter hashtags, in response to Guzman’s hashtag in his previous post: #IkawAngUmayos and #DoYourResearch.

In the end, she retorted with a reply about the issue of respect.

At Mr. Edgar Alan kung gusto mo ng konting RESPETO sa mga artistang Pilipino baka gusto mo din konting RESPETO din sa mga batang manonood,” she said.

(And Mr. Edgar Allan, if you want a little respect for Filipino actors, you might want to give respect to young viewers, too.)

Talent manager and entertainment columnist Ogie Diaz also called out Uson over her “standards” for “strong parental guidance” on programs on television, and supported Guzman on his outrage over Uson’s harsh comments.

Mocha Uson previously said in one of her video posts that if she could not convince the rest of the members of MTRCB to completely eradicate “soft porn” on television, she will resign from her post. JB
