Refusing to Move

Whenever a celebrity accepts an appearance to an out of town show, the understanding is that he/she has been briefed on the nature of the event. Leveling off has to be done to set expectations, such as the requirements for and of the celebrity as well as price of the appearance. Thus, when the celebrity makes the commitment, he/she should adhere to the commitment.

Sometime ago, Tall Actor (TA) was invited to grace a religious pageant in a provincial town somewhere north of Metro Manila. Given that the nature of the pageant is Catholic, images and relics were essential elements of the ritual. The yearly event is a grand occasion for any town, as the best and the best-looking are often tapped to join. Celebrities are often the highlight of the parade, and TA was part of the entourage.

Dressed in the appropriate attire, the march was delayed because TA refused to budge. The moment he saw the Catholic religious images placed behind him, he freaked out and insisted that he will not move at all until the images were removed. The organizers were shocked at the attitude of TA, as the actor was informed of what he was joining. Any Filipino is expected to be familiar with the nature of the event, but in the case of TA, he seemed clueless.

TA reasoned out that his religion does not allow such icons and he is a very devoted follower of his church. Therefore, he will not take part in any event that will show him marching with religious icons. The attitude of TA delayed the event, as the parties had to compromise. So as not to ruin the expectations of the people who waited for hours for the event, the organizers did not have any choice, but to adhere to the request of TA. After all, TA has already been paid and if he suddenly drops out, the payment would have been for naught. Thus, the order of the traditional march had to be rearranged. Instead of being last, TA and his partner went ahead of every one else.

Incidentally, TA has been in the industry for some time and has starred in several significant roles in his network. He has also won recognition for his acting and other talents. However, his loveteam with pretty young actress ended, and their fans claim that such an end coincided with their alleged breakup.

‘There are always reasons for people's behaviour, and it's easy just to dismiss them and assume that we already know their story, especially if they're no good at showing their emotions. Life gives you all these knocks, it's so easy to form a shell to protect yourself.’ - Kate Dickie

    1. You did well? Seryoso? Tinanggap pera tapos di gagawin commitment? Kung mahalaga sa kanya relihiyon niya at gusto niyang respetuhin, sana di na sya nagpabayad nung una pa lang kahit pa di nya alam kung ano yun. Tapos muntik pang masira yung okasyon na mahalaga para sa mga catholics. Paano irerspect religion nya. Blind follower ang dating e. Mas okay ngang hindi na siya ipartner kay G. Tutal naman sinasakyan nya kung saan sya sisikat

    2. No he did not. He should have refused the project. Does he not have a manager who would tell him what the event entailed?

    3. mga beks tama lang ginawa nia no! as if naman hindi alam ng irganizers na bawal sa kanya un! siempre inexpect ni R na hindi sya palalapitin sa anito! tama lang kunin ang tf at wag isuko ang paniniwala.

      Delete
    4. Dapat hindi nya tinanggap yung offer dahil christian tradition yung event. "Isuko ang paniniwala" my a**. Isang event lang yun hindi religious siege.

      Delete
    5. Uhh 4:31, mali kasi dapat di nya tinanggap in the first place. Pwede naman siya mag no di ba.

    1. Hindi pwedeng si X dahil hindi siya religious. Na influence lang siya ni K mag simba at magdasal

  8. r kaH, na hindi naman sikat..bakit ba sya nag-agree? hindi ba dapat alam yan ng handler/manager na no-no yang mga ganyan sa religion nila. saka respeto naman, bastusin ba ang okasyon dahil lang sa religion mo? naimbita ka tapos mag-iinarte ka dun eh hindi ka naman sikat duh!

    1. Clueless naman sya baks. Saka hindi naman binastos lumakad pa rin naman. Nagmeet naman half-way. If you demand respect dapat i-respect din ang religion nya diba?

      Delete
    2. it's not about being sikat or not. may mga tao talaga na devout sa religion nila at baka ganun siya

      Delete
    3. As the article said - he knew beforehand what he was invited & PAID for. if its against his religious belief, he should have said NO. it's called unprofessionalism.

      Delete
    4. In the first place bakit sya ang ininvite ng organizers, clueless din sa beliefs ni R?

      Delete
  9. Si R ng KH. Flop yung loveteam nila ni G ever since. Pinaghiwalay sila dahil timing naman na mas gusto ng tao kasama nya si K.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Dapat nag-decline na siya noong una pa at hindi na tinanggap ang bayad...turn off naman

    ReplyDelete
  11. Imposibleng clueless siya dahil sa iskul pinag-aarlaan na ang event na iyon bilang isa sa mga tradisyon dito sa Pinas

    ReplyDelete
  12. R from Kah. In a way his reasoning is understandable pero he should've known what type of event it was to begin with.

    ReplyDelete
  13. catholic organizer,'s shoildn't have adhered to his request and just let him go, paud or not. You just showed your true loyalty is to money. No one can't argue with religiin, but with what you've done, clearly shows how little you can do for God

    1. ano ba kasi akala mo sa Catholic organizations? mayayaman lahat na pwedeng pwede nalang nila i-let go yung actor kahit nabayaran na? most of the money galing sa donations or fundraisers. pinaghirapan din nila maaccumulate yung pera na yun.

      malamang hindi ka Catholic kaya ganyan ka mag-isip. siguro galing ka sa relihiyon na mahilig magpuna ng ibang religions kasi para sakanila sila yung "true".

    2. I'm Catholic pero I fully respect other people's religion.. and I'm kinda agree with you 2:50..

      Delete
    3. 6:44 I am 2:50 and I am a Catholic. That money paid to the actor is a small price compared to standing up to what you believe is right. The fact that the traditional march is changed in to give way to his whims, sino ang sinunod, and Diyos o ang tao? People like you are the very reason why a lot of people dislike Catholics. Sa ngalan ng pera, mabilis bumigay. Spare me with your prejudice please lang.

    4. tama! kalurkey ang simbahan ha nag adjust dahil sa artista?

  14. I can't blame this celebrity if he refused to do what they've asked him given if he was really clueless.There are members of certain religion that are really devoted to their beliefs even if it would mean their lives,what more of it's just about their careers

  16. Am sure he knows what to expect from this yearly event. He just went for the money then last minute, nag inarte na. Dami talaga kapal na face ngayon.

  17. If this is R then I admire him for his bravery.

    1. Kung sinauli na Lang sana ang pinagbayad sa kanya at di na nakiparade, yon ang masasabing brave tsong

      Delete
    2. 5:46 Marami na syang tinanggihan na offer for the sake of his religion kaya masasabi kong brave sya. Siguro ayaw nya lang maging bastos kaya tinuloy nya ang paglakad but of course they had to at least put him far away from those graven images.

  18. many think it's X but, no, it's R of KAH

    ReplyDelete
  19. Si R ng KaH naku if i know dami na artista member ng same religion na nagpalit ng religion dahil sa kasikatan. We all know naman pera-pera lang sa showbis kesa magstay sa religion nila.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Against his religion? Why did he agree to do it and accept the money? He should not have gone in the first place. I understand the constraints of his religion but if I were in his place I would have declined the project when it was offered. Greedy creep.

    1. "should not have GONE" talaga?

    2. 4:52, tama si 6:10, past participle dapat, so "gone" is correct.

    3. Ay ano pala 4:52? I''m not 6:10 btw, fyi lang

      Delete
    4. Could be manager's decision. Wag naman sabihan ng greedy. Marami na rin sya tinangihan na offer. Judgmental lang talaga kayo.

    ReplyDelete
  24. R ng KaH na starlet

  25. The organizers should have put more thought into planning who to get. Catholic event pala mag hi hire kayo ng taga ibang relihiyon? Tsaka si TA naman, sana hindi na tinanggap ng manager niya yung gig kasi alam naman niya siguro kung gaano ka devout yung alaga niya. Fail on both sides, hay.
