ABS-CBN’s Pilipinas Got Talent 6 (PGT) is trending once again for its controversial episode that aired last Saturday night, March 4.
The viral segment featured a dance audition number by the Playgirls. Currently, the video is on top of YouTube’s “Trending.”
According to the group, they want to “heat up the night” with their sexy car wash talent.
However, just seconds after the performance started, PGT judge Angel Locsin pressed the “stop” buzzer. “Hindi ko kaya na makita kayo na nagsasayaw ng naka-underwear para sa amin,” the former nation’s finest said.
She added, “Kung may talento kayo, yung ang ipakita niyo sa amin, dahil talent ang hinahanap namin dito, hindi katawan. Kaya kayo binuzz. Ayokong ma-objectify kayo, masyado ako nagmamalasakit para sa inyo para i-go ko ito at patuloy kayo panoorin ng kalalakihan na ginagawa iyan.”
The group failed to pass.
Angel’s comments consequently trended with the group’s number. Some netizens agreed to what the Kapamilya actress said.
Twitter users also shared their savage reactions regarding “carwashing” as a talent.
On the other hand, some netizens believed that Angel’s comments are harsh and even slut-shamed the group.
Members of the Playgirls are also bashing Angel for what she said.
