Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Saturday advised critics offended by the ABS-CBN series “Ang Probinsyano” not to watch the show, saying it was just pure “fiction.”

“Unang una, kung sila ay nao-offend dun sa mga napapanood nila sa ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ ‘wag sila mannood. Yan fiction yan eh,” he said in a interview with AM radio station DWIZ.

[First of all, if they’re offended by ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ then they shouldn’t watch it. That’s just fiction.]

Earlier, Director General Oscar Albayalde, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), told reporters that the show was “unfair” and gave a “bad impression” of the organization.

Trillanes also took issue with the plan of the PNP to manipulate the show’s script, likening it to censorship under martial law.

“Censorship ang gagawin nila. Bawal yan. Pupuwersahin nila baguhin ang script? Naka-imagine ka ba ng isang sine pagpagawa ng movie o pagpagawa ng teleserye na pakikialaman ng gobyerno. Aba, martial law tayo niyan,” he said.

[What they want to do is censorship. That’s forbidden. They want to force changes in the script? Can you imagine a movie or a TV series being made with the government meddling? That’s like being under martial law.]

Trillanes also claimed that many police officers and military troops enjoyed watching the show.

“Maraming pulis at sundalo ang sumusubaybay dyan,” he said. ”Yan ang gusto nila panoorin — di dahil sa kung ano ang nangyayari sa tunay na buhay kung hindi dahil yan ay entertainment. Ang mga kababayan natin sa hirap ng buhay yan ang nagbibigay ng pansamantalahang kaligayahan, pakikialam mo pa.”

[Many police officers and soldiers follow that series. They want to watch that — not because it reflects what’s happening in real life but because it’s entertainment. Our countrymen who are having a hard life just want some moments of happiness. Why meddle with that?] /atm
