Cristy Fermin Denies "Karangalan ng isang babae ang mabastos ni Willie” Statement

1:52:00 PM

Controversial showbiz commentator Cristy Fermin refuted online posts maliciously attributing to her a statement many viewed as demeaning to women.

In her interview with TV5’s “Aksyon Journalismo” last April 11, Fermin denied she ever said, "Karangalan ng isang babae ang mabastos ni Willie,” which she purportedly made in her radio program.

Hindi para sa’kin ang magsabi na karangalan ng isang babae ang mabastos ni Willie Revillame dahil babae rin ako,” Fermin said in her interview.

Since April 10, a wildfire of reactions engulfed social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, with netizens castigating the female TV host.

Many even went as far as questioning her credibility as a showbiz scribe and hurled foul words at her, as well as at Revillame, who’s also in hot water these days because of the controversy involving a six-year-old boy who performed a "macho dance" routine on "Willing Willie."

The controversial quote seems to have been an abridged version of a longer statement which Fermin made in TV5’s weekday showbiz talk show “Juicy” last Feb. 24, as noted user @ChuckieDreyfus’ tweet last April 10.

"Saw the video na. What was posted on twitter isnt exactly accurate." In the same post, however, he opined, "She said it differently but still very 'off' & inappropriate."

In the said clip, Fermin and her co-hosts IC Mendoza, Mo Twister, Alex Gonzaga and Shalala were discussing John Estrada’s alleged double-meaning spiels on the noontime show “Happy Yipee Yehey!”

At one point, Fermin said: “Pero alam mo dalawang tao lang kasi, dalawang lalaking personalidad lang ang parang pinapayagan ng publiko na maging 'matulis'. Si Rico J. Puno lang at saka si Willie (Revillame). 'Pag sila ang nag-deliver para bang malaking karangalan mo pang mabastos ka…"

And as Fermin clarified in the same interview with “Aksyon Journalismo,” the context of her full statement on “Juicy” pertained to the delivery of “green jokes.”

Just as Revillame has figured in many controversies of late, Puno has also recently caught the ire of some Cebu officials after he allegedly insulted the province’s governor, Gwendolyn Garcia, in a gathering.

Revillame, meanwhile, had been suspended by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board a few years back due to his “green jokes” on the now-defunct noontime show “Masayang Tanghali Bayan.”

Despite having received apparently below-the-belt attacks from Twitter users, Fermin has no plans of suing them.

Fermin also cried foul over her impostor on Twitter whom she claims used the platform to malign her name. She said that she does not utilize social media to begin with.

Napakamakaluma ko pa rin. Makinilya pa rin ang ginagamit ko, may nage-encode para sa’kin. Hindi ko alam ang Twitter, hindi ko alam ang Facebook, [pero] marunong akong mag-text,” said Fermin.

Here is Cristy Fermin's actual (and controversial) statement. Aired on her regular program, "Juicy" (TV5):
