    1. Sa dami ng magagandang places in Ethiopia, they chose that concept pa. Seriously? Nega, insensitive, tacky and offensive.

      Respect people from all walks of life. You can choose landscapes, background, nature etc na theme. Don't use locals, animals etc sa ka-cheapan na yan.

    2. Ang kasal ang alam ko is about two people in love. Saan ang love? Bakit may mahihirap na tribo as background? So mahirap sila, kayong dalawa alta, ganon? Paki explain ang inachieve nila dun

    3. Nahiya ang LUCY skeleton remains sa kanila ha. Ethiopia has ancient history, old world charm, vast culture and rich background.

      These papansin KSPs dishonored the country and its people ha. Hello lang! Wag puro eksena sa photoshoot. LEARN THE CULTURE, HISTORY of the country you visit all the time.

    4. Yan pala gusto nila pumunta nalang sila sa Payatas, smokey mountain gumastos pa sila papuntang africa para lang mapansin na mas angat, mayaman at maputi sila. Juicekolord.

    6. Bandwagon na naman. Nakita lang ang majority ng mga comments sinundan na ng mga ganung comments din. Baka fave movie lang nila yung the gods must be crazy Kaya ganyan ang theme nila.

    7. Lol ang tamang tanong is "Bakit kaya ganyan ang naging concept nila?" E puro kayo speculations at nagcaptions na agad sa isang picture that paints a thousand words! Kayo mga naglagay agad ng thousand words...tsk tsk tsk chooo choooo all aboard the Wagon!

    9. Oo nga ano kaya ang gusto nila ipakita sa concept nila? Na sa mundo ng mahihirap,sila ay angat? Hayyy

    10. This is just cringe-worthy. I mean, what the hell were they thinking?

    11. hindi sila mag comment ng ganyan kung hindi naapektuhan ang mga readers dito 1:21 alam mo yung pagiging sensitive!

    12. i am not getting a rich vs poor vibe naman pero the photo looks off bec si Coleen naka gown and naka fierce look. Kung sana they were more smiley and yung mga tao parang nag cheer sa kanila, it would have been great..like they found love in Ethiopia ang theme. With this kasi, it looks disconnected, shallow and superficial. Parang gusto lang sabihin na kabog yung prenup nila.

    13. walang respeto sa kahirapan ng ibang tao.

  2. DISTASTEFUL. NEGA. INSENSITIVE.

    whether or not there was an intention to be racist or discriminatory is immaterial. THE FACT THAT MANY ARE BOTHERED BY THE PICS MEANS THAT SUCH IS OFFENSIVE.

    CONGRATS COLEEN AND BILLY. what a way to start your family life.

    3. They are not racist! They are showing the beauty of the people there! The scenery! So ikaw pag may isa kayong barkada na ita ang kulay di kayo pwede magpa picture kasi racist ka!!! Wala talaga maputi dun maski san ka maghanap! Kita mo ba ung mga unggoy! Ung mountains! Ang ganda!!! Magalit ka kun pinapay payan si coleen sa picture!!!

    6. It’s clearly is racist, when you idolize your idols so much you become similar like them insensitive think highly of themselves and you become blind even if you do things that are wrong.

    7. 1:22 tanungin mo! kaka tawa eh nakikita ng mali ang picture. Hindi binabatikos yung mga tao . Pero ang concept ng picture maling mali. Nakikita namin na lavish ang presentation ng couple amidst poverty. Alam mong Ethiopia yan. Very poor.

      Delete
    8. 2:00 hindi racist kung nagpapicture kayo ng kaibigan mong ita. Hindi naman kulay ang pinaguusapan dito eh. Ang issue dito bakit ginawa nilang background/props ang mga locals dun. Nakikita nyo po naman po siguro na sina Billy at Coleen glamorous and extravagant amidst the locals. Pwede namang yung views na lang ang pinakita o kaya nakipag -interact sila sa mga locals.

  3. Ang OA na nga nitong dalawang to, sa dami ng mga pictorials na yan kala mo naman kung sinong mga sikat o royalty. Mahigit isang taon na yang mga paandar nila. Look at Prince Harry and Megan Markle. Iba talaga ang mga TH at papansin.

  14. This shoot is sponsored by Ethiopian Airlines and one of the organizers of a wedding expo here. You'll know because they will use Billy and Coleen's photos in promoting. This is not their concept BUT they shouldn't allow it too

    1. kahit ano pa yang sponsor , nakaka offend. Maganda naman yung iba nilang photos na nasa jungle at sa market. Ito lang yung off na gumagamit ng tao as background.

  15. Hindi nga maganda concept ng prenup nila. To think it's Metrophoto ha. Sayang. I was expecting a US prenup shoot or Paris shoot where Billy got famous. Parang bagay kase sa kanila parisian shoot or mtv style hollywoodish prenup. Medyo overkill ang Ethiopia concept, so agree na trying to look different but failed big time. Sino kaya nag isip coordinator nila or photographer?

  16. Prang hindi nga prenup parang photo shoot sa mga cover magazine wla man lang feeling na wedding ang theme.. ewan mema lang

    3. hindi maganda ang mensahe ng picture na ito. Hindi sa judgment towards the couple pero ang mensahe nakaka offend.

  18. Im sorry pero mas maganda kung pinapakita ang pagtulong nila sa mga tao etc. Hindi yung ganyan. Panget talaga. Parang mayaman kami, mamahalin ang mga gown namin. Kayo walang wala. Mahirap pa kayo lahat sa daga. Panget!

  19. I follow dmetroman and mymetrophoto on IG cause isa sila sa mga choices namin sa wedding. I admire Oly and the whole metrophoto team when it comes to wedding photography and their work is extraordinary. However when I saw Billy and Coleen prenup photos this morning, sabi ko I think they crossed the line. It is unique but wrong on some levels. Sabi na nga ba magiging issue to. I just wish they can explain the theme of the prenup but I'm afraid they wouldn't do it anymore cause they have deleted those photos with the tribes as background.

  20. Bakit dahil "White" sila?

    4. Anon 12:33 hindi naman racism pinaguusapan dito. Ang pinaguusapan dito yung insensitive na paggamit mo ng ethiopian women and children as their PROPS for their engagement photoshoot. Napaka-gara ng suot nila Billy and Coleen tapos isurround mo ng mga indigents? It would have been better if they took shots while nakisocialize sila with the people.

    3. di ko rin magets kung anong mali dito, dahil black yung background. Base sa pagkakaintindi ko nasa isang tribe sila and doing photo shoot.. whats wrong with that.. yung mga taong nasa picture malamang masaya sila dahil may mga tao na biruin mo prenup sinama sila..

    4. 12:53 parang racist kasi Ang dating.

    5. When you have your pic taken kasi with the locals you smile you communicate you interact with them. Dito mukhang mayaman yung couple tapos di nila nakikita yung poverty around them. Its like they choose to turn a blind eye with the reality of the place.

    6. Agree kay 12:32, mga pinoy lang naman ang super affected, mkasabing racist or mayabang, eh pag nakatabi nga lang ng aeta sa jeep kala mo diring diri na. Wag nga kami mga hipokrito.

      Delete
    7. 12:32 same thought too.. para sa akin wala naman masama sa ginawa nila as long as bukal sa loob ng mga locals and they were treated well.. some people nowadays are so sensitive, maging background lang ang mga black o kaya something na nagpapakita ng poverty, exploitation agad.. ung mga taong ganyan, sila mismo ang racist.. wala naman masamang intention ung couple... kung masama ang magpapic o photoshoot with foreigh tribes, so masama rin with our very own local tribes, such as Igorots? masyadong OA ung iba, kala mo mga sinong righteous..

    8. Korek!!! Kasi maiitim talaga tao dun!!! Magulat ka kun makakita ka tisay dun!!! Un nga ung beauty ng pic eh... locals ang background! Kakaiba! Nakkasawa na ung pictorial sa mga 1st world! Sus.... ang ganda ganda kaya nila sa pic tingnan! Ignorante

      Delete
    9. 1:42 correct! this is the real point. Stick to the issue tayo mga bes, its not the color. Halimbawa sa Pilipinas ang photo shoot . Nasa Smokey Mountain halimbawa pinapakita mga nagpupulot ng basura, sa gitna ganito ang suot mo. Naka gown ka, wala ka kunong paki sa paligid. OFF, very OFF

      Delete
    10. wag nyong lituhin ang argument. Ang sabi ng mga commenters dito yung nakikita nila is awa sa mga mahihirap na nasa background habang sila Billy and Colleen sobrang mahal ng mga damit. This is sooo wrong!

  26. I honestly didnt think there’s anything wrong with their photos when i first saw them. All i saw was how beautiful coleen is and how pretty the pics are with all that pop of vibrant colors. Wala akong malice na nakita or na feel i was just drawn to the beauty of it. Nagulat na lang ako may mga nagri react negatively. Just goes to show iba-iba talaga ang reception ng tao. I actually still like the pics. Hindi ko na inisip na lagyan ng malisya. But then again this is me. ✌🏼

  32. If it's meant to showcase the culture, then they failed. The focus is clearly on them and not the people and the culture. Kaya nagmumukhang wrong. They have no public advocacy whatsoever for the Ethiopian people, (wala man lang statement kung merom tlg to save their a$$) so I don't think this gimmick is meant to please these people. How can this please anyone?

  39. There's nothing wrong with using children and women a concept in artistry for whatever. What makes this a bit distasteful is the fact that this shoot is supposed to be a celebratory mood and when u put poor people on the background, it makes u feel like they are trying to celebrate poverty or stressing out the contrast of social hierarchy. Din medyo foul. Artistically speaking, whoever thought about this is be a bit delusional.

  44. Pretentious, shallow and shameless couple.

  45. For me, hindi naman offensive ang mga photos. Magiging offensive kung nagpahid sila ng pampaitim, pero hindi naman nila ginawa, kaya ok lang. I love all peoples.

  46. It doesn’t look like a prenup but a magazine spread—a cheap one.

  47. Sobrang na OA na kasi ang dalawang yan.

  48. Hahahaha....they think they are so special. Sadly, they are not.

  49. Bakit di nila narealize to bago shinoot? Oh well, ano pa nga ba maeexpect sa couple na to.. They’re not known for their intelligence...

  50. A sunaet in a beautiful safari would have suffice. They should fire the company that had this concept, but then again they agreed and paid for it.

  51. Trying hard much kasi. Wala namang talent ang dalawa.

  52. I dont see anything wrong with the photos. I guess the children are part of the culture that's why they're included. People get offended with almost anything nowadays. Lahat nlng ng bagay may meaning. Its not right to have a photo with the kids, BUT its ok to judge them and even throw words na ndi maganda towards the couple? Wow!

    1. No, you are wrong and the pictures are very wrong because the locals are presented in a very bad way. Gets mo?

    2. Omg 1:13, seriously?? Totoo na people can be too sensitive, but this is over the top tasteless!

      Delete
    3. anon 1:18 like how? very bad? nakatayo sila and naka pose. Siguro kung kumakain sa lupa tapos basta basta lang silang nagpapic dun ka magalet.

      Delete
    4. 1:13 mag isip ka naman. They are not being bashed for all their photos. Ito lang ang tasteless at nakakaoffend sa kahirapan ng mga tao.

  53. Yes is a fail. Ano ba yan National Geographic?

    ReplyDelete
  54. They were trying to copy another pafamous couple on instagram who also used locals as a backdrop. Ang epic fail ng nakaisip ng concept nito and shame on this couple for agreeing. I guess gusto talaga nila mapag-usapan kasi wala namang pumapansin sa kasal nila.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Tbh, the pictures are no good. Walang taste yata.

    ReplyDelete
  56. It looked like they were rich people who were surrounded by poor people and they are invicible to the rich people’s eyes.

  57. I don't see anything wrong with the pictures. Imagine if instead of Ethiopians, they were Eskimos instead? Or Tibetans? Siberians? Native americans? There won't be an issue. People are being sensitive because they're black. People who reacted negatively are the ones treating black Africans differently. They're the ones putting malice and reminding everyone that they are often treated inferior, and are thus acting to all self righteous about it, whereas some of us think it's just a normal shot of a culture different but just as beautiful.

    2. korek ka dyan. Sila lang nag iisip ng masama sa picture.

    3. I totally agree with you

    4. Why would you clad yourself with overly extravagant clothing in a place where poverty is a daily life? Ano ang culture duon? It would have been different of they were interacting with them or even have the same clothing as they do.

      If you so believe there is culture being depicted here, please tell me what it is. Culture of what? The rich vs the poor? I'd like to be enlightened.

      Delete
    5. kanina ka pa sa black and white concept mo! sinabing poverty vs rich. Try mo nga sa tambakan ka ng basura magpapicture at mag gown ka, pero ang background mo yung mga tao na namumulot basura. Maganda pa rin ba tignan? kanina ka pa nililigaw mo lang ang debate , its not about the color of your skin.

    6. hindi yan malisya. racism and eurocentrism are realities na deeply embedded sa lipunan natin. sadyain man o hindi, maging sensitibo tayo sa estado at kultura na kapwa.

  58. Of all the places in the world, why pick an impoverished country to flaunt your status in life? Disappointed in these two. Tsk tsk.

  59. This photoshoot screams one word: EUROCENTRISM

  60. Art is subjective indeed. Pinakita ko to sa kasama ko and medyo off sa kanya pero sa akin wala naman akong naramdamang inappropriate.

  61. di na kayo nasanay sa dalawa eh diba tuwing out off the country sila lagi nasasangkot sa gulo

  62. Their concept is odd. I have No idea what they are trying to achieve but filipino tourists also take pics. with Igorots..etc on their vacay..OA lng ang reactions...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. People take pics with the igorots probably because they're not used to seeing them. Kumbaga, they're a culture you dont get to see everyday. That's for memento purposes. Eh itong pictorial na ito is for a wedding shoot and not because theyre amazed to see Ethiopians. The main story I can get from these is that they're royalties and dressed extravagantly while their background are the oppressed (unless you dont have an idea about poverty in Africa). My reaction nor the other's is not OA. You won't feel anything unless you are ignorant.

  63. Pag negra ba poverty ba agad? Di nmn siguro papayag magpapicture kung feeling nila naoffend sila. Ang oa kase ng ibang tao. Naooffend para sa ibang tao. Chill lang uy

    1. yes this is part of their shots in Ethiopia, Ive see the other photos pero magaganda naman. May mga shots sila sa animals, may mga shots sa may market. Magaganda talaga. Ito lang shots kasama mga locals ang insensitive.

  65. OA na talaga ang dalawang yan.

  66. True I don’t get why they needed the tribe for their shoot, like what’s their concept.....rich vs poorπŸ™„

  67. ano ba masama talaga sa photos ??? eh diba mga turista nga sa baguio mjnsan bakcground pa mga igorot sa photos ...

    ReplyDelete
  68. Not a fan of these annoying two but I do not find this distasteful or inappropriate at all. Mob mentality at it again. This just shows how Pinoys get easily persuaded by misconceptions. In this case porke’t Ethiopians poverty agad ang iniisip. Little learning is a dangerous thing. Go watch National Geigraphic, people!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Nasa tao talaga kung bibigyan mo nang malisya bawat makikita mo. Ang nakikita ko sa photos na ito ay kagandahan ng culture at mga Ethiopians, at hindi poverty o superiority. Siguro naman masyado lang naappreciate nila billy at coleen ang lugar kaya dyan ang prenup shoot nila. At wala naman nagbabawal sa kanila nun dahil business na nila yon. Masyado naman sensitive yung iba, kunware pang concern talaga sa mga Ethiopian locals pero sila pa pala tong di makappreciate sa kultura at mga tao sa lugar na ‘to.

  71. Easy lang sa pag judge. Malay nyo naman nag-donate din sila dyan which is di na nila kelangan i-prove. Saka syempre di maiiwasan sa ganyang country may mag photobomb because they love people, bihira lang sila bisitahin ng taga ibang countties, so instead na alisin sinama na lang.

  72. Hindi ko gets ang hanash ng mga tao. Ang daming sensitive ngayon...
