A confrontation happened inside the Pinoy Big Brother house last night, August 25.
PBB 737 housemates James Linao and Dawn Chang got into an argument when the latter accused him of being "touchy."
The housemate dubbed as “Bombshell Baker ng Paranaque” admitted that she felt offended because of the actions done by James.
Dawn, who has a boyfriend in the outside world, disclosed that there was even an instance when James asked her if he could bite her ears.
REACHING OUT THROUGH SONG. Earlier, Dawn confessed to Big Brother that she is already feeling uncomfortable around James.
Kuya then instructed Dawn and another housemate, Mikee Agustin, to write a song about the said issue and perform it in front of the housemates, so that they can send the message across to everyone, especially James.
After their performance, Dawn clarified the reason why they wrote the song.
“Ginawa namin ‘tong kantang ‘to para i-remind tayong lahat, pero especially yung mga kalalakihan na sana huwag nating kalimutan na sa isang kaibigan, dapat may respeto, at may limitasyon.”
Dawn then turned to James.
“Ginawa namin ‘tong kantang ‘to hindi para i-degrade kung sino man pero kasi lately, James, medyo napapansin ko na medyo nagiging touchy ka.
“Na-a-appreciate ko yung mga akbay, yung mga paglambing mo. Minsan it’s a little bit too much.
“Hindi ko 'to sinasabe para ipahiya ka. Para lang as friend, masabi ko yung nararamdaman ko kasi ayoko nang mailang.”
James then protested that they could have talked to him privately and what they did was an “immature move,” which caused even more tension.
“Ako nabigla ako, na ako na pala! Para sa ‘kin, immature na move,” said the housemate dubbed as the Worldwide Worker ng Surigao.
Dawn, 26, pointed out, “Gusto ko lang sabihin na hindi lang kaming dalawa [ni Mikee], si Krizia [Lusuegro], pati si Margo [Midwinter] napapansin na rin.”
But James fired back, “Ngayon lang ako nakaramdam na ginanito ako ng mga taong hindi ko naman masyadong close at kilala.
“Pero dapat yung magandang paraan kasi sana diniretso niyo ako.”
Dawn continued to defend herself, “Kaya napakaingat ng pagkakasabi ko, kasi nga ayokong ma-offend ka in any way.”
But James said that he felt humiliated because of their move.
“Para sa 'kin lang ha, yung move na ‘to, napaka-immature for us na nasa legal age na tayo.
“Ako, ako yung taong napaka-open. Kung ano yung nakikita niyo sa 'kin, yun ako.
“Pero yung dumating sa punto na ganito, parang ako yung nabastos na ewan, kasi harapang ginawa sa mga kasama ko, which is sa tingin nila, hindi naman ako ganon.
He also reiterated that he would never insult any other woman because he has a mother and sister, and he was not brought up that way.
"Never ko gagawin na mambastos ng babae. Never. Never.
"Hindi ako bastos na tao.
"Hindi ako pinalaking bastos."
Dawn then started crying as she continued to defend herself.
“Nahihirapan ako kasi hindi naman ganito yung gusto kong mangyari.
“Naiintindihan ko yung nararamdaman mo pero sana naintindihan mo yung naramdaman ko, nape-pressure ako!
“Sana huwag niyong tratuhin na parang wala akong puso.”
The sensitive topic caused the hashtag #PBB737Confrontation to become a top trending topic in the Philippines and worldwide on Twitter.
