The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) reveals their decision earlier today, March 5 over the controversial birthday song number of Anne Curtis on ASAP.
No sanctions against ABS-CBN musical variety show are lifted by the board as Curtis made a promise that she will no longer wear those kind of outfits (daring/very sexy/bold/provocative) especially on live television.
However, the MTRCB is requiring the staff and stars of “ASAP 18” and other Kapamilya programs to undergo a gender-sensitivity seminar on March 15 to avoid similar incident in the future.
Consequently ABS-CBN release its official statement on this matter:
“ABS-CBN will continue to cooperate with the MTRCB and ensure that its programs will be in accordance with the gender sensitivity guidelines of the board. ABS-CBN thanks the board for hearing its side of the issue as it gives its assurance to self-regulate.”
