Humingi ng paumanhin ang promoter ng Tears For Fears concert dito sa Pilipinas sa veteran broadcaster na si Korina Sanchez sa napaulat na pagbu-boo raw ng audience sa kanya sa naturang concert na ginanap sa Araneta Coliseum noong Linggo, May 2. (CLICK HERE to read related story.)

Sa pamamagitan ng statement na ipinost ni Renen de Guia sa website ng Ovation Productions, promoter ng Tears For Fears concert, nilinaw nila na hindi raw alam ni Korina na ipinapakita pala sa big screen ang pagsasayaw at pagpa-flash niya at ng kanyang mga kasamahan ng Laban sign.

"While Ms. Sanchez and her companions were dancing and doing the Laban political sign to each other for sheer fun, our production crew cameraman focused on Ms. Sanchez without her knowledge. Unknown to her, she was being shown live on the big screens," pahayag ni De Guia sa kanyang statement.

Hindi rin daw personal na narinig ni De Guia ang pag-boo ng mga tao kay Korina dahil nasa soundboard siya sa likod ng Patron section ng Big Dome.

Ayon pa sa concert promoter, "I would like to apologize to Ms. Korina Sanchez if our cameraman inadvertently focused on her. We would like to clarify that neither Ms. Sanchez nor anyone in her company made arrangements with us that they be given publicity mileage for political purposes during the Tears For Fears concert. I can imagine that flashing the "Laban" sign has become second nature to her after having been actively campaigning daily for months."

Nauna nang itinanggi ni Korina na may ganung insidente na nangyari sa loob ng Araneta Coliseum sa panayam niya sa ilang entertainment editors sa isang presscon noong Martes, May 4.

"Issue of propriety na ito. Ugali ko na ang pinag-uusapan dito. Walang nakarinig ng boo. We didn't hear it. Mar [Roxas] was there, he didn't hear it. Pinagtatawanan lang niya. Kasi hindi naman niya talaga narinig," saad ng veteran broadcaster.

Si Korina ay misis ng tumatakbong vice president na si Sen. Mar Roxas, na kasama rin ng ABS-CBN broadcaster na nanood ng concert ng Tears For Fears. Ang Araneta Coliseum ay pag-aari ng pamilya ng senador.

THE STATEMENT. Narito ang kabuuang statement ng Ovation Productions:

"I am writing this with regards an alleged incident at the Tears for Fears concert last Sunday and to clarify certain inaccuracies in reports, tweets, and exchanges we have come to know about.



"First, we would like to thank everyone who watched the concert, which was a huge, huge success. It is unfortunate that, present in the audience was Ms. Korina Sanchez, who became a victim of something unintentional while the concert was ongoing. While Ms. Sanchez and her companions were dancing and doing the Laban political sign to each other for sheer fun, our production crew cameraman focused on Ms. Sanchez without her knowledge. Unknown to her, she was being shown live on the big screens. Reports say there was "booing" from the crowd. I was at the soundboard area behind the patron section and I did not personally hear the booing myself. I must've been preoccupied with other concerns and the alleged booing was not loud enough to have distracted me. I would like to apologize to Ms. Korina Sanchez if our cameraman inadvertently focused on her. We would like to clarify that neither Ms. Sanchez nor anyone in her company made arrangements with us that they be given publicity mileage for political purposes during the Tears For Fears concert. I can imagine that flashing the "Laban" sign has become second nature to her after having been actively campaigning daily for months.



"We hope this clarifies matters and, again, we apologize to Ms. Sanchez for whatever inconvenience this misunderstanding may have caused her."
