A British national is being investigated after a photo of him and two other Caucasians that were posted on a social media site caused a public stir.
As per Minda News, Marlon Coro, president of the Provincial Councilors’ League, ordered an investigation into the activity of Liam Cox who organized the Drunken Carabao Tour where tourists were made to pay P1000 per head for a carabao ride. The ride comes with free alcoholic drinks.
Local residents complained to Coro after they saw on a social media site a photograph that showed a nude Cox and two naked foreign nationals while riding a water buffalo.
Cox has since apologized and had already taken down the photo from the social media site.
“In light of recent events, it has come to our attention that some of the photos from our Carabao Ride that were posted on our social media pages caused quite a public stir. We sincerely apologize to anyone whose decency and good custom may have been offended. The ones we posted were behind-the-scenes photos of a shoot in the mountains with our friend who is an international tattoo model. No private parts or any indecent pose were shown. Rest assured, consent was given by all participants across all angles of this happenstance. All photos have now been taken down. Again, we are sorry if you felt slighted,” he said.
