Suspended sa loob ng dalawang linggo si DJ Mo Twister at mga kasamahan niya sa Good Times na sina Tin Gamboa (DJ Suzy) at Mia Bayuga (DJ Mia) dahil sa pagpapasimuno ng trending topic sa Twitter tungkol sa Pinay international singer na si Charice.
Si DJ Mo, o Mohan Gumatay, ay kasalukyang nasa New York. Samantalang sina DJ Suzy o Tin Gamboa at DJ Mia o Mia Bayuga ay dito nakabase sa Manila.
Ang parusang ito ay opisyal na inihayag ng radio station na Magic 89.9 sa isang statement na inilabas nila kanina lamang.
"Suspension without pay" ang naging desisyon ng radio station dahil sa ginawa nilang #Charice PempengcoSexTape hashtag sa Twitter kaninang umaga, May 9, na wala namang katotohanan.
Ito ang kabuuan ng official statement ng Magic 89.9:
The management of Today’s Best Music Magic 89.9 does not condone what happened this morning, May 9, 2012 on GoodTimes. As a joke, the 3 DJs started an objectionable hashtag about Charice Pempengco on Twitter. An Apology to Ms. Pempengco shall be made tomorrow morning, May 10, 2012 on the said Radio Show. Furthermore, as sel regulation, The DJs involved shall be suspended from boardwork for Two Weeks without pay as consequence of their actions.
TRENDING TOPIC. Nagsimula ang false hashtag tungkol kay Charice sa kanilang radio show kanina, kung saan napag-usapan ng tatlong DJs na gumawa ng isang trending topic para sa kanilang programa.
Sabi ni DJ Mo sa kanyang co-DJs, “Let’s trend topic for our show.
“What we’re gonna do is we hashtag something completely unrelated to what we’re talking about today."
Ilang oras ding naging top trending topic in the Philippines ang hastag na ito, na nakakuha ng iba’t ibang reaksiyon mula sa kanilang mga tagapakinig—pati na rin sa ilang Twitter users.
CHARICE REACTS. Hindi nagtagal ay nagbigay ng reaksiyon si Charice tungkol sa hashtag na ito.
Nagbigay rin siya ng mensahe kay DJ Mo na tila may pagbabantang gagawa siya ng legal na aksyon.
Ang mga sumusunod ay Twitter posts ni Charice, na magdiriwang ng kanyang ika-19 na kaarawan bukas, May 10, subalit hindi na makikita ang mga ito sa kanyang timeline sa Twitter.
“@djmotwister you are...unbelievable.”
“@djmotwister too bad. Remember, you interviewed me? I thought you were nice. anyway, I should talk to you FACE TO FACE. :)”
“@djmotwister I hope you have a good lawyer.”
GOOD TIMES DEEJAYS APOLOGIZE. Makalipas ang ilang oras, humingi rin ng paumanhin si DJ Mo sa pamamagitan din ng Twitter.
Ito ang sunud-sunod na Twitter posts ni DJ Mo:
“I want to take the opportunity to apologize to Charice for a stupid & cruel joke on our show today. We attempted to be funny at her—
“ --expense and, in the process, hurt her feelings. It’s with deep regret that we have come to learn that. On behalf of @suzy899 and @mia899-
“ --we apologize Charice for our stupid behavior and immature attempt to generate laughs. You have worked so very hard, not just for yourself-
“ --and your family, but to put our country in a positive light, to promote immense Filipino talent, and you have done that successfully.-
“ --We are proud of you and we are embarrassed because we failed to support that. I wish I could make it up to you and rest assured-
“ --that we will exhaust every avenue to do so. We are sorry. You’ve been nothing but supportive of our show in the past. We failed to show-
“ --failed to show our appreciation today. @OfficialCharice.”
Samantala, nagpahayag din ng paumanhin si DJ Suzy sa kanyang Twitter account kanina lamang:
“i would like to apologize to charice who has shown me NOTHING but kindness, & to u the listeners who have always been so loving & supportive
“i am taking responsibility for everything that was said, but please know that there was ZERO malicious intent. ZERO. i am sincerely sorry.”
Ganito rin ang naging saloobin ni DJ Mia sa kanyang Twitter account:
“We would like to apologize for those that were offended at the poor attempt of a joke during our program. The spirit in which it was intended was EXTREME exaggeration and not of fact. Little did we consider the feelings of the parties involved. We promise our best effort to not let it happen again and bring a different kind of entertainment via the program from now on. Sincerest apologies to @OfficialCharice, her family and her many loyal fans. IT was a sheer lapse of judgement in which I deeply regret.”
