“Are you ready to rumble?” Absolutely! Especially Chasters with their matching pitchforks and torches all armed and ready to defend Charice. Well that is a bit of an exaggeration but still “To arms!”
Anyway, by now most people must have heard or read in the news lately about the controversy involving three DJs of the radio station Magic 89.9 and Charice. Guess who the DJs are? Read on!
It all started the morning of May 9th in a Philippine local radio show called “Good Times” wherein DJ Mo along with his co-hosts Tin Gamboa and Mia Bayuga decided to create a hashtag on Twitter that said #charicepempengcosextape as some sort of a “joke”. It became the number 1 trending topic in the Phillippines.
In Charice’s official Twitter account she replied to Mo twister as being “unbelievable” and thought of him as being nice because he interviewed her before…guess he was not.
Of course this will not go unnoticed as the radio station released an official statement saying:
“The management of Today’s Best Music Magic 89.9 does not condone what happened this morning, May 9, 2012 on Good Times. As a joke, the 3 DJs started an objectionable hashtag about Charice Pempengco on Twitter. And apology to Ms. Pempengco shall be made tomorrow morning, May 10, 2012 on the said radio show. Furthermore, as self-regulation, the DJs involved shall be suspended from boardwork for two weeks without pay as consequence of their actions.”
DJ Mo also expressed his apology:
I want to take the opportunity to apologize to Charice for a stupid & cruel joke on our show today. We attempted to be funny at her expense and, in the process, hurt her feelings. It’s with deep regret that we have come to learn that. in behalf of @suzy899 (Tin Gamboa) and @mia899 (Mia Bayuga), we apologize to Charice for our stupid behavior and immature attempt to generate laughs.
You have worked so very hard, not just for yourself and your family, but to put our country in a positive light, to promote immense Filipino talent, and you have done that successfully. We are proud of you and we are embarrassed because we failed to support that. Hope I could make it up to you and rest assured we will exhaust every avenue to do so. We are sorry. You’ve been nothing but supportive to our show in the past. We failed to show our appreciation today @OfficialCharice
The same also goes with the two DJ’s.
From DJ Mia:
“We would like to apologize for those that were offended at the poor attempt of a joke during our program. The spirit in which it was intended was EXTREME exaggeration and not of fact. Little did we consider the feelings of the parties involved. We promise our best effort to not let it happen again and bring a different kind of entertainment via the program from now on. Sincerest apologies to @OfficialCharice, her family and her many loyal fans. IT was a sheer lapse of judgement in which I deeply regret.”
From DJ Tin:
I would like to apologize to charice who has shown me NOTHING but kindness, & to u the listeners who have always been so loving & supportive, i am taking responsibility for everything that was said, but please know that there was ZERO malicious intent. ZERO. i am sincerely sorry. it was horrible judgement on our part, and i would like to thank both those who have condemned it & those to have remained supportive. i am sorry, and i will do everything humanly possible to not do anything like it again. in behalf of the team – @djmotwister, @Mia899 & myself – sorry magic listeners, Charice, & her fans. you all deserved better from us.
So in the end the question is, “who’s laughing now?”
