The fans of Anthony ‘Ka Tunying’ Taberna couldn’t hide their disappointment with the journalist for interviewing the controversial ex-cop Willie Gonzales who went viral on social media after his confrontation with a cyclist.
It can be recalled that Gonzales received a tremendous amount of criticism on social media after his video while confronting the cyclist on August 8 had been circulated by some netizens online.
The one-hour interview gave a chance to Gonzales to defend his side and insisted that he was not the one who caused the confrontation.
He even claimed that the cyclist was the one who provoked him.
While the interview received thousands of views online, some netizens still expressed their dismay at Taberna for giving a platform to Gonzales.
“Very disappointing, Taberna. Bakit niyo bibigyan ng chance na marinig ang isang taong tulad nito sa iyong platform? Hindi siya retirado, dismissed siya,” said netizen Irish.
“Di mo dapat binigyan ng platform to Tunying. Anong point nito? Alam nating lahat na narcissistic tong taong to, pinagbigyan mo pa. Tignan mo, lalo lang kami naiinis sa mga sinasabi niya. Clearly, wala siyang pagsisisi sa ginagawa niya,” netizen Brent commented.
“Ay my pa interview pa,,ganun ba un pag mayaman interbyuhin nio din ung isa para fair,” netizen Magdalena remarked.
Meanwhile, Taberna said that he was willing to give a platform to the cyclist but he couldn’t contact him.
The cyclist already released a statement that he was not planning to file a complaint against Gonzales to protect his peace and privacy.
