What people do for money
Posted on

I have no respect for Willie Revillame for not having the brains to stop this kind of child abuse.

In case you don’t recognize the moves, that snaky dance is what macho dancers do in local gay bars.

The kid obviously has stupid parents, but Willie should know better.
Then again Willie gets away with anything because he’s rich.
So this post is actually not going to make any difference.

    all of the videos online that shows the complete segment were removed especially the last part wherein the boy was elevated with dancing ladies surrounding him… this shows exactly what money can buy these days… feel so bad about the level of morality in this country

    Willie knows he can get away with anything because he is rich! well, lets hit him where it hurts and stop buying all the products that he endorses or advertise on his show. I know it will be tough but lesson must be learned as this guy thinks he is invincible.

  • The parents’ got something to do at how the kid considers his talent to be “entertaining” .. parang yung ibang magulang na tinuturuan ang mga anak nilang magmura o maging barumbado tapos matatawa na mukhang proud pa.

    yung pagtawa pa ni willy nakakasuka.

    I have a 16-month-old boy, hence this is a painful 10 minutes to watch. But as this has been the most blogged about topic, I had to see what it was about.

    Willie has just sank into an all-time low. I cannot believe that you could strip someone of his dignity in exchange for a few minutes of mean laughter (and 10,000 pesos).

    What’s wrong with his dad owning a parlor? It’s good, honest work.

    The network and Willie can apologize all they want, but this speaks volumes of their values. Thinking people should boycott this show!

    In all this, only one thing keeps coming back to my mind, a passage from the Good Book:

    Now Jesus said, “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.” – Mark 9:42

    May the Lord have mercy on those who would harm the souls of the innocent in their quest for temporal gain.

    Cecile, I’d just like to share this link of a letter to Jan-Jan written by Cathy Babao-Guballa. Hope this brings some enlightenment.

  • i never watched this clip in full as i hate willie revillame’s evil-sounding laugh. i did and now i’ve seen how really bad it is. revillame is sickening.

    no child should ever be subject to this kind of treatment. EVER.

  • The TITA! OMG, the tita. Her face and her cheering when the boy was dancing. I want to cause her bodily harm, seriously.

    And everyone laughing! It reminded me of those movie scenes where they pan across a crowd of people laughing crazily, which is usually a sign that either they are crazy, or the person imagining the scene is crazy. It’s super disturbing. And I only saw one person cover his eyes in discomfort in what he saw.

    Hopefully this will bring about a change in these types of TV show segments. There really should be an age limit, as not only are the kids made to perform for money, they are also subjected to the ridicule of the hosts and the crazy, creepy laughter of the audience. Besides, what does this teach them? That it’s ok to be humiliated in front of millions of people in exchange for a couple thousand pesos? And it’s not like they can forget this, ever. youtube will be there to forever archive the moment.

  • The program was “conceptualized” – “aims” to provide a venue for talent, stories and dreams.. your description of your show does not follow your vision.
    Viewers found it in bad taste? YES. how about Mr.pangilinan and the TV5 execs? didn’t you think it was done in bad taste? –JanJan performed this dance in the past? that makes it okay? he was taking the dance seriously? your explanation why janjan was crying doesn’t make any sense at all. are you telling us that there is no one to blame except 6 year old JanJan? everything points back to the 6 year old child.
    you are grateful to be reminded? are we in pre school? do we need to keep you on your toes? You’re objective is to bring hope and joy to who? you bring joy to your own pockets, you earn by capitalizing on the poor, their miseries. so many ways to help. so many ways to influence the masses and uplift their lives. but you choose to have shows like this. if it weren’t for the masses WW won’t even be around today and they don’t even know this. But you do. You owe it to the masses yet you have a twisted way of making the masses feel they owe you. Don’t pretend to be something you’re not.

  • Willie TV5 apologize?

    Mr. Willie Revillame, the producers of “Willing Willie” and TV5 sincerely and deeply apologize for the segment of the show featuring 6-year-old Jan-Jan Suan which viewers may have found offensive or in bad taste. We wish to stress that there was never any intention to humiliate or abuse Jan-Jan or any contestant on the show.
    “Willing Willie” is a program that was conceptualized to bring joy and hope and shine the spotlight on ordinary Filipinos. The program aims to provide a venue for everyone to show their talents, tell their stories and make their dreams come true. This is the thrust of everyone involved in the program, particularly its host, Willie Revillame.
    Like most contestants on the show, Jan-Jan, accompanied by his aunt, joined the program to showcase his talent and play in a game segment in the hope of bringing home big prizes. He has performed in the past in school programs and mall contests, and his performance in “Willing Willie” was completely voluntary and with the blessings of his parents. He appeared to be sad or even in tears, not because he was being forced to dance, but because he felt the dance was “serious” and he was playing a role. He did not want to smile because of his missing upper front teeth and because of the presence on the set of former basketball player Bonel Balingit who Jan-jan thought was a scary “giant”.
    Again, TV5 and Wil Productions express profound regret for any insensitivity on their part, and wish to thank all those who have expressed concern. We are always grateful to be reminded of our obligations to the viewing public. In turn, we hope to make clear that the objective of the show has always been to bring joy and hope to Filipinos, whether they are participating on the show or viewing at home.

    Willie for sure will get away with this once again. I believe it’s better if we boycott the advertisers of the show. I wonder what’s in their “morality clause”
