Pinagsabihan ni Directors’ Guild of the Philippines, Inc. (DGPI) President Paolo Villaluna ang isang direktor na member ng Katipunan ng mga Direktor ng Pelikulang Pilipino (KDPP) ukol sa sexist slur ng post nito.

Ang sabi ni Paolo nitong Setyembre 4, Miyerkules ng umaga, sa Facebook:

“I'm calling you out, William Mayo.

"Your freedom and age, based on your posts, definitely WILL NOT pass off as wisdom when it comes to tolerance and acceptance of sexual freedom.

"Being a filmmaker requires an awareness of power and influence, more so on social media.

"You can personally believe what you want, even continue making bad films, that's really ok -- BUT you cannot PUBLICLY call an act of love and identity a crime.

"As fellow artists, we have to draw the line when you invite vilification: your posts incite others not to accept the diverse spectrum of sexuality.

"It is also a veiled attempt at unconscious, middle-class status quo powers.

"I've had the blessing of consensually enjoying all genders, emotionally and sexually. BUT in your view, I am a criminal and unnatural.

"In the 100th year of Philippine Cinema, we expect a little more from aging, filmmaker colleagues.

"But I guess holding on to rancid tradition is more comfortable than understanding evolution and human nature itself.

"We are artists. We represent humanity, not our personal, zealous righteousness. Know your power. A mirror always helps. With due respect, direk."

Nauna na kasing nasabi ni Direk William Mayo noong Setyembre 1, Linggo ng gabi, sa Facebook (published as is):

"Under apartheid in South Africa, homosexuality was a crime punishable by up to 7 years in prison.

"Sana dito din sa pinas pairalin ang batas ba yan. Ang Saya saya."

Sa isa pang post, inilagay ni Direk William na:

"SANA MAGPASS NG BILL MAKING HOMOSEXUAL ACT, A 'CRIMINAL' ACT.

"LIKE IN MALAYSIA. WHERE 'SODOMY' IS A CRIME"

Ipinost ito ni William with matching faces of Bataan Representative Geraldine Roman, Vice Ganda, at Boy Abunda.

Ewan kung may panahon sina Vice Ganda at Tito Boy Abunda sa ganyang hanash na hindi mawari ang pinaghuhugutan.

Wala bang bading sa KDPP? Kapwa National Artist for Film ang mga direktor na sina Ishmael Bernal at Lino Brocka.

Ano ba ang legacy na iiwan ni William Mayo bilang direktor?

GORGY RULA

Minsan, may mga post ng kung sino man para lang magpapansin. Mamili na lang tayo kung anong isyu at sino ang dapat patulan.

Hindi na nga napapansin ang mga pelikulang naidirek ni William Mayo, 'tapos bibigyan natin ng espasyo itong post niyang obvious namang nagpapapansin lang?

E, karamihan naman sa mga pinapakiusapan at pinakikisamahan niya para magkatrabaho ay miyembro ng LGBT community.

Kailangan pa ba natin siyang seryosohin?

Well, baka hindi naman busy si Direk Paolo Villaluna kaya may panahon siyang punahin ito.

Hayaan na natin silang maglalabu-labo. Tuloy ang buhay!
