The video posted on Facebook by Viscom-Fine Arts student Khalil Versoza on Sunday afternoon showed the character actor first lashing out at him then assaulting him over their production’s delayed script.
Versoza explained in the video’s caption that he tried to apologize to Geisler for the incident.
“Pero nagpaparinig na siya na sana kasi maaga binigay yung script, so nag-sorry pa rin kami kasi alam naman namin na kasalanan namin,” he said.
Versoza continued to lament that they did not deserve to be treated that way by Geisler.
“It's not right to pick on us, [yes] we're a still student prod, [but] we put our hearts into this production and advocacy, kahit ako pa ang nagwaldas ng pera para lang mabayaran yang TF niya, wala talaga kaming budget at nagkaroon pa ng kaunting aberya,” he said.
“Baron Geisler, wala kang karapatan na mag-beastmode, kaya sa tingin ko na dapat kong i-post ito. para makita ng lahat na mali yang ginagawa mo,” he ended.
However, in some comments on Facebook and Twitter, netizens are saying the clip is a social experiment by Geisler and Versoza’s group.
PUSH has reached out to Geisler and his management agency, ALV Talent Circuit Inc., and they have yet to give an official statement regarding the incident.
Just last year, Geisler was caught confronting a bar bouncer in another viral video.
Geisler’s camp meanwhile claimed that he was discriminated upon by the bouncer.
The actor has gained notoriety after figuring in a number of controversies and violent incidents over the years.
