Naglabas na ng kanilang hatol (desisyon) ang PAMI o Professional Artists’ Managers, Inc. tungkol sa isyu ng pag-ihi ni Baron Geisler sa kapaw aktor niyang si Ping Medina last Saturday.
Narito ang kabuunan ng statement ng PAMI na tila may mga katanungan ang ilan sa naging desisyon nila:
“The Professional Artist Managers, Inc. (“PAMI”) has called for an emergency meeting in response to the letter of complaint received from actor Ping Medina dated 30 November 2016 regarding an incident that happened during the shooting of a scene for the film “Bubog”, involving his co-actor, Baron Geisler.
“Ping Medina wrote that “Baron urinated on my torso and face without my permission.” PAMI strongly condemns this disgusting act and behavior of Geisler.
“After a thorough discussion and deliberation during the meeting, in the presence of Geisler’s manager and PAMI member, Arnold Vegafria, PAMI unanimously arrived at the decision to inhibit all our artists from working with Geisler in any movie and television projects for an indefinite period.
“PAMI received Vegafria’s assurance that he will refuse to accept any projects until such time that Geisler is mentally fit and psychologically stable to resume his work as an actor.
“In addition, Vegafria filed a formal complaint questioning the capacity of the movie’s producer/director, Arlyn Dela Cruz, to exercise control and assume full responsibility on the set that could have prevented this regrettable incident to happen.
“As managers, when we send our artists to the set, it is with our complete trust that the producer and director will protect and ensure the safety of our artists. Therefore, we have also unanimously agreed to inhibit all our artists from accepting any projects involving Arlyn Dela Cruz.
“As always, PAMI is together with the industry in aspiring for a healthy, safe and professional working environment.”
Pero may reaksyon ang ilan tulad ni “Citizen Joe Javier” sa kanyang Facebook account: “Unfair to Arlyn! How could she possibly control an uncontrollable talent?! This is a sign of weakness in an organization which cannot punish the guilty but can deprive a victim of her livelihood. My esteem of PAMI just went down a number of notches that may equal my lowest regard for Geisler. For shame!”
Maging si Ed Malay ay may komento rin sa naging desisyon ng PAMI: “Wow this is Solomonic. Is this how PAMI decides on an issue? How could the Producer control such a situation? Geisler acted on his own outside of what the script called for.”
As of this writing, wala pang reaksyon si Direk Arlyn tungkol sa desisyon ng PAMI sa kanya.
Sinilip namin ang FB account niya kung saan doon din siya nagpahayag ng kanyang sariling version sa pangyayari sa shooting ng kanyang pelikula, pero until now ay wala pa siyang ipino-post. Abangan…
Pero heto ang latest: Nag-sorry na raw si Baron kay Ping at sa director niyang si Arlyn.
Tanong ko lang, is the decision fair para kay Direk Arlyn?
