E alam mo naman, si Awra is gay. Gusto niyang makita ‘yung magandang katawan.” the chief stated.

“Ay hindi , sir. Mali ka dyan, sir. Huwag, sir. Huwag ganoon. Palibhasa gay, gusto makita agad ang katawan ng isang lalaki? Siguro may pinagmulan yung kaguluhan. Paano n’yo po nalaman na nagsasabi ng totoo itong complainant na pinaghuhubad siya ni Awra?” Tulfo said.

In an episode of ‘Wanted sa Radyo,’ Tulfo said that he was only trying to lecture Makati City Police Chief P/Col. Edward Cutiyog for stereotyping the LGBTQIA+ community, and he didn’t mean to defend Awra.

He explained that they only interviewed Cutiyog and not the complainant because of lack of time.

“Patas po kami dito eversince,” said Tulfo. “Kapag may mga kasong ipiniprisinta dito na bitin, nagkakaroon kami ng follow-up,”

According to the public official, they made some efforts to get pieces of evidence and listen to both camps who got involved in the heated confrontation.

They also interviewed some of the bar staff where the incident happened.

The manager of the bar said that Awra was the one who forced the complainant to remove his dress.
