Kapamilya fans called the attention of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) after Wally Bayola allegedly cursed on live television.
The August 10 episode of E.A.T’s segment, ‘Sugod Bahay mga Kapatid’ gained the attention of the netizens, especially the ABS-CBN fans after they heard the bad word uttered by Wally.
In the said episode, Wally and Jose were talking to the studio hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
When the camera was focused on Jose, Wally who was not visible on the screen was heard saying expletives.
Even the legendary trio were surprised by what they heard and tried to hush Wally.
It’s not yet known if Wally was aware that his microphone was on during the said incident.
Several ABS-CBN fans believed that MTRCB would just ignore Wally’s action because of the connection of the agency’s chair to the hosts of E.A.T.
“Syempre deadma si Lala dyan. Sya ba naman nandyan during launch as a daughter not as MTRCB chair. makikita na naman namin pagmumukha nya sa mga sinehan,” netizen Stream said.
“Siyempre Di papansinin yan ni madam chair. Ang LALA nyo: natural lang kay Wally yan. Nakagawian na nila yn kalyeserye palang. Matagal na nila ginagawa yan. Wala naman problema. Words of expression lang naman yan. Walang dahilan para imbitahan ang Eat,” netizen Deal Lopez commented.
However, some netizens still defended Wally from the critics of E.A.T.
“You know what, yung malutong na mura actually it has become a natural part of day-to-day pinoy’s life, sad to say. so what’s the point of censorship? when you can hear this in your neighborhood everyday, you can hear this everywhere. kasi walang national sanctions,” netizen Arnym remarked.
