- PGT Judge Angel Locsin received harsh online posts from the contestants she buzzed out on the talent show
- Angel said she’s concerned and won’t let men continue watching them doing their act
- Playgirls members said she also wore bra and panty in her Darna soap
Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) judge Angel Locsin received harsh responses from members of Playgirls Yuna Love Lee and Camsi Sierra as shared in a Fashion Pulis post.
“Makapagsalita akala mo naman di sya nagsuot ng seksi nung nag-Darna siya, naka bra’t panty lang din siya. Buti nga’t may suot kaming damit eh,” Yuna said via FB.
[She talks like she has never worn sexy when she played Darna. She used party and bra too that time. We were better off wearing clothes.]
Camsi, moreover, criticized Angel and pointed out that their concept was “carwash”. She added, PGT contacted them and gave the concept.
In the controversial episode, the contestants, in their scanty attire, claimed “papainitin namin ‘yung gabi” [we will make the night hotter] and Angel responded “mainit na” [it’s already hot] while smiling.
Robin Padilla, another judge, told the contestants to show what they’ve got so they did their performance. However, the female judge, Angel, immediately buzzed them out.
The actress-judge later commented, “Ako kasi parang hindi ko kaya na makita kayo na nagsasayaw na naka-underwear para lang sa amin. Masyado kayong magaganda at masyado n’yo itong pinaghirapan para gawin ‘yan. Kung may talento kayo ‘yun ang ipakita n’yo sa amin dahil talent ang hinahanap namin dito, hindi katawan, kaya ko kayo binuzz. Ayokong ma-objectify kayo. Masyado akong nagmamalasakit para sa inyo. Para i-go kayo at para patuloy kayong panoorin ng mga kalalakihan na ginagawa yan.”
[I don’t want to see you dancing in underwear. You’re too beautiful and you’ve prepared much to do that. If you’ve got talent, show it to us. We are looking for talents, not bodies, that is why I buzzed you. I don’t want you to be objectified. I am concerned and won’t let men continue to watch you like that.]
Robin clarified if the contestants are doing it because they like doing it and they said yes.
He said they should understand her because women’s rights is her advocacy and she does it to protect them.
They got two ‘yes’ — from Freddie Garcia and Robin — which means they are not qualified for the next level.
