Robin Padilla on ‘Naked Truth’ runway scene: ‘Ito ay hindi katanggap tanggap’


092514-robin_main.jpgRobin Padilla has expressed his dismay over the runway scene of Coco Martin during the Bench Naked Truth fashion show where he was pulling a woman on a leash while he was walking down the ramp.

Robin posted on his Instagram account, "Ang ganap na ito ay hindi katanggap tanggap. Kung sino man ang nakaisip nito ay kailangan mapaliwanagan sa usapin ng karapatan pantao,lalo ang karapatan ng kababaihan."

He stressed that art should uphold gender equality.  "Hindi ginagamit ang pangalan ng sining sa pagpapakita ng pang aabuso at pang aalipin, ang kalayaan sa pagsasalarawan sa pamamagitan ng talino ay ginagamit sa pangmumulat tungo sa pagkakapantay pantay ng tao, ano man ang kanilang kasarian."

Robin underscored that what happened during the fashion show is a major discrimination among women. "Isang napakalaking isyu ito ng discriminasyon sa panahon natin ngayon na ang ibang mga bansa ay nakikipaglaban para sa karapatan ng mga hayop na mabigyan ng kalayaan sa tanikala habang tayo namang mga Pilipino ay literal na tinali, inalipin at niyurakan ang isang Pilipina sa harap ng pampublikong lugar. Bayan ko, san po ba natin gusto talaga mapunta ... Mahiya naman po tayo sa mga nanay natin.babae ang Ina natin,babae ang nagluwal sa atin sa mundong ito.."

The online world was set abuzz recently about the said segment in the show. Netizens and women activists group have expressed their disapproval over the said fashion show that very much exploited women.  

Bench Clothing has issued a public apology last Tuesday about the said controversy saying that they will “take all these concerns seriously and will serve as a lesson learned.” Bench added that they will “continue to uphold the dignity of women” in all their endeavors.
