willie revillame may leave tv show. internet citizens making a difference!
the MTRCB and soon the KBP are holding hearings and an investigation on willie revillame’s desecration of cory aquino’s memory when he went on rant on live tv about removing the inset showing of the funeral march during his show. revillame wanted it removed as according to him which he said on national tv, it was affecting his performance as a superstar emcee of the noontime show wowowee.
these groups are doing something, we wonder why abs-cbn seem to be completely silent on it. all that they have done was to ask revillame to go on leave. first it was reported to be a 3-week leave but on this article the word being used is an “indefinite leave”. why is abs-cbn silent?
the other interesting part on this article is the mention of the fact that while the aquino family may have reconciled with willie and have forgiven him, it says here the people, the audience have not. the article says 48,165 have signed the online petition to oust willie from the tv show.
48,165 – that is us, that includes you who is reading this post. what that says is our indignation and our action on the internet is being considered and playing a factor. let us continue to be vigilant and voice our objection to revillame’s unacceptable behavior and let us continue to ask abs-cbn to remove willie from the show.
ask others you know to register in that on-line petition.
what else can you do? visit other blogsites and post the link to the on-line petition in other blogsites or ask them to visit this blogsite.

What Willy Revillame did on his show with regards to the broadcast of President Cory’s cortege last Aug 3 was the height of crassness and rudeness against Tita Cory and the Filipino people in general.
Willie Revillame says he may just leave show
By Marinel Cruz
MANILA, Philippines—The case of the “grossly unethical conduct” of “Wowowee” host Willie Revillame during the show’s Aug. 3 episode was the subject of an adjudication committee hearing at the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board offices in Quezon City on Thursday afternoon.
MTRCB chief Marissa Laguardia said Revillame and ABS-CBN, which produces and airs “Wowowee,” were asked to present evidence in their defense against the charge of violating Section 3c of PD 1986, for “being objectionable and contrary to … customs and traditions paying respect to the dead.”
The complaint stemmed from Revillame’s objection to the insertion of videos of the late President Corazon Aquino’s cortege on the show. In a memorandum sent to the network on Aug. 11, Laguardia described Revillame’s behavior as a show of “arrogance and great disrespect to Filipino culture.” She said the TV host also violated the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas’ code of ethics.
The three-member adjudication board was chaired by lawyer Sonny Cases. Lawyers Mona Manalo and Cherry Cruz represented ABS-CBN. Revillame’s legal counsel Armando Marcelo attended on his behalf.
Another hearing has been set for Aug. 20.
Cases vowed to be “fair in resolving this case.” He said the show may be suspended or canceled, and if criminal liability is determined, “the guilty party” faces up to six years in prison. “Next week’s hearing is crucial,” said Cases.
Revillame is still on “indefinite” leave from the daily show even if Kris Aquino, in an interview on Monday on the late-night show biz program “SNN,” said her family has accepted Revillame’s apology.
Many viewers are apparently not as forgiving. At press time, 48,165 have signed an online petition seeking to ban Revillame from show biz. Revillame said he may just leave the show. “Even if I have the support of the network and the advertisers, kung ayaw na ng tao sa akin, what’s the use?”
Laguardia noted that another case has been filed against the TV host before the KBP. She said that, in a letter addressed to KBP president Herman Basbano, Arlene de Guzman-Ronquillo accused Revillame of “psychological violence” on account of some careless remarks.
