ABS-CBN exec says lambing, ‘pa-kiss’ common newsroom jokes

 

It was a widely-accepted biruan that never stirred any controversy until now.

ABS-CBN executive Maricar Asprec issued her own affidavit to counter every claim made by journalist Gretchen Fullido who filed a sexual harrassment case against her and her partner Cheryl Favila.

Asprec sought to dismiss Fullido’s claims that she encouraged Favila to harrass her, saying that she assumed that all three of them were friends working in the same company.

As one argument, Asprec said ABS-CBN’s News Production Team behaves like family, and no one is thin-skinned to take everyday banter seriously.

“Makulit, maingay, kengkoy at masasabi ko na malambing sa bawat isa. Parte ng kultura sa newsroom and gumamit ng mga pa-cute na salita, mga salitang hango sa mga teleserye at pelikula, news, at gay lingo,” Asprec said in her affidavit before the ***.

“Yung mga biro katulad ng ‘pwede pa-kiss or kiss na lang daw’ ay mga normal na salita na ginagamit ko, ng mga kaibigan ko at ng ibang tao sa newsroom,” she explained, citing Vice Ganda and Roderick Paulate as their main sources.

“Normal din ang mga tawagan na ‘sexy, beautiful, ganda, gorgeous’ sa Newsroom. Hindi ko naiintindihan bakit ito binibigyan ng masamang kahulugan ni Gretchen. Sa apat na taon na naging magkaibigan kami, ni minsan ay hindi niya sinabi na ayaw niya ng mga ganung usapan. Makikita rin sa mga text niya na naglalagay din siya ng kiss icon,” Asprec added.

She even went to issue a counter-complaint against Fullido for giving false evidence and malicious statements against her and Favila.

The battle continues!
