"ShowTime" Suspended for 20 days by the MTRCB due to Osang's Negative Remarks against Teachers
The talent-search “ShowTime” was immediately given a 20-day suspension by the MTRCB because of the negative remarks by Rosanna Roces as one of its judges during one episode. On the said episode, sexy star Roces uttered negative remarks against teachers in response to a question she threw at a contestant from Calamba, Laguna about Jose Rizal’s real name.
Watch the video of the purported “ShowTime” episode:
Rosanna Roces was immediately suspended by ABS-CBN from being one of the judges on the show the day after the incident.
With the 20-day suspension, ABS-CBN is said to raise the decision of MTRCB to a proper court, for not giving the network and the staff of the talent show due process to defend themselves. The hosts and staff of the show felt that the decision of the MTRCB was done in haste and felt sad that they were slapped with such a decision.
With the suspension effective immediately, upon receipt of the network, ABS-CBN is said to put in a temporary program while they are still appealing their case.
I think, ABS-CBN has a case, as they obviously responded with responsible actions against of Rosanna Roces, and second, they deserve to be given due process as to the handling of the issue.
What do you think of the decision of MTRCB to slap the show with a 20-day suspension without even putting a hearing or giving the network the opportunity to respond?
