Eat Bulaga fancy dress costumes offend muslims

Eat Bulaga got in a bit of hot water for its halloween special when Eat Bulaga host Joey de Leon and Filipino senator Tito Sotto dressed up in thobes for the show. Which although being pushed in the media as “Muslim” is actually Arab clothing.

Its a bit of a concern as this made so much media coverage even to the point of the BBC. But does anyone remember Marilyn Porras Restor, a Filipino overseas worker? I can pretty much guess most people haven’t even heard of her even when she disappeared. But eventually her husband received a call explaining that a body had been found and could he come and identify his wife.

Although money has been offered to the family no support for justice has been forthcoming from the Philippines or Saudi governments. Now that is something that I would consider offensive.
