Abominable off the Philippine market

Wala na sa mga sinehan nationwide ang controversial animated movie na Abominable.

Ayon sa statement ng office ni Movie and Television Review and Classification (MTRCB) chair Rachel Arenas, “MTRCB understands the situation brought about by the movie ‘Abominable. We wish to assure the public that the said movie is already off the Philippine market effective yesterday, 15 October 2019.”

Ito ay matapos sabihin ni presidential spokesperson Salvador Panel na “Depende siguro yan sa MTRCB kung ano ang assessment nila,” sa isang interview the other day sa presidential spokesperson.

Naging controversial ang animated movie matapos itong ipa-ban sa Vietnam dahil sa eksena na makikita ang nine-dash line sa pinag-aagawang bahagi South China Sea. Kasama ang Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia at China sa nag-aagawan sa nasabing bahagi ng nine-dash line.

Ang Dreamworks and Pearl Studio ng China ang producer ng Abominable, written and directed by Jill Culton.

Sa tweet din si Department of Foreign Affairs Sec. Teddy Boy Locsin nag-agree siya sa isang netizen na dapat i-edit ang eksena.

Sagot nito: “Of course, they should cut out the offending scene which will show our displeasure better than if we unconstitutionally ban it as some suggest. Do not cut out crudely. Maybe interject MTRCB head in cut out scene with a hectoring lecture. Then cartoon goes.” (SALVE V. ASIS)
