San Miguel Beer’s Arwind Santos was fined P200,000 by the PBA on Thursday for directing a monkey gesture at TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones during Game 5 of the Commissioner’s Cup Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial handed the heftiest fine in recent memory after summoning Santos at the league office in Libis to explain the actions he made with 1:05 left in the second quarter of the Beermen’s 99-94 win Wednesday night.

“Walang lugar ang racial discrimination sa basketball at sports, in general, at sa PBA, in particular. Hindi pinahihintulutan ng liga yung mga ganung aksyon, at kung maulit pa, mas mabigat na sanction ang ipapataw natin,” said Marcial.

(Racial discrimination has no place in basketball, sports in general and the PBA in particular. The league does not condone such actions, and a stiffer punishment will be handed if similar incidents happen in the future.)

“Bilang Commissioner, humihingi ako ng pasensya at pang-unawa kay Mr. Terrence Jones at sa kanyang pamilya. Ang PBA ay tahanan para sa lahat, bukas para sa lahat at walang kinikilalang kulay, lahi o paniniwala,” he added.

(As Commissioner, I would like to apologize and ask for understanding from Mr. Terrence Jones and his family. The PBA is open for everyone regardless of color, race or beliefs.)

Santos also must commit a total of 100 hours of community service and undergo seminar and counseling on equality and racial discrimination.

The veteran forward later used his Twitter account to apologize to Jones and to the public.




“I don’t mean anything bad (to) you (Jones). I hope you forgive me (and) I wanna say sorry,” Santos said in a video that lasted 44 seconds.

“Gusto ko humingi ng taos-pusong pagpapatawad sa fans ng (TNT), San Miguel, PBA at sa lahat ng mga nasaktan. (I would like to sincerely apologize to the fans of TNT, San Miguel, the PBA and all those who were hurt by my actions.)

“Wala po akong masamang intensyon. Inaamin ko po, mali po ako. Sorry po, sana mapatawad niyo po ako. Tao lang po ako na nagkakamali din. Yun lang po. Sana mapatawad niyo po ako. Sorry,” Santos added.

(I have no ill intentions. I admit, I was wrong. I’m sorry, I hope you forgive me. I’m just a person who makes mistakes too. That’s all. I hope you forgive me. Sorry.)

Santos refused to apologize hours after Game 5, saying that the move was done in an attempt at playing mind games with Jones.

Jones condemned Santos’ actions the following day and called on the league to take “swift and significant action.”

    1. Racist??? Dahil ginawa ke Jones? Pano kung sa kapwa local niya ginawa like for example ke Abueva racist pa din? Nung mga bata pa kami pag mangaasar ganyan ang ginagawa namin ungguy unggoyan. Hindi kaya Racist magisip mga tao kahit wala namang balak si Arwind na si Jones yung pinapatungkulan niyang unggoy but yung sarili niya na nangaasar dahil me kasabihan tayo na parang tsonggo sa kulit. Form ng pangaasar at pangungulit na natin ito so hindi kaya yung mga Racist e yung mga nagisip na si Jones yung unggoy dahil sa ichura niya kaya cguro ayaw ni Arwind magapologize in the first place dahil lalabas nga naman na si Jones yung pinapatungkulan niyang unggoy imbis na siya yung Makulet na unggoy na nangaasar.

    3. 2:16 yung mga katulad mo at ni Arwind ang kulang sa education. PBA yan. Professional league so he should act one. Hindi baranggay levels para tanggapin na ok lang ang action nya.

    4. But they are playing professionally. Being paid as a professional player may ethics at policy po dapat na sinusunod. I get it may asaran tlaga especially basketball na nilalaro sa kanto.. pero this! Unacceptable for a professional athlete, in a nation wide coverage game! Have you seen NBa players na gumaganyan s bench??? Huh??! 2:16

    6. 2:16 Does it matter kung kapwa local or not? basta ang tira ay based on someone's skin color or race specific attributes racist yun. Palusot ka pa dyan.

    7. 2:16. You should write a thesis on the history of monkey-ing around based on a filipino pov. While you’re at it maybe try and do some research on racial slurs and maybe do a deep reflection on yourself.

      Delete
    8. Oo racist yun. Read and learn how the blacks are treated. May history po kasi. Also his action is uncalled for. Anong pang-aasar? Pang-aasar to say na monkey yung tao, bakit monkey? Anong rason at monkey yung pinili nyang pang-asar dun sa tao?

      Also ito reality, Filipinos are racist yun nga lang dinadaan sa comedy.

      Delete
    9. 2:16. Yes kahit ginawa niya kay Calvin Abueva yun he can be called racist. Google internalized racism. Ang labo ng analogy mo. Gaslighting much? Also why would you call someone a monkey whether filipino siya or not? Seriously. If someone calls you out in the street na you look like a monkey won’t you be offended too? For god’s sake he is an effing professional athlete. If this happened in another country wala na siya endorsments and his team would have probably dropped him already.

    15. Arwind, just apologize. It's obvious you are referring to Jones when you did that gesture. It is racist. Apologize and be sincere.

    17. So, sa Eat Bulaga kapag si Allan K niloloko nila na monkey, racist na sila? Ang labo ng mga tao nowadays.

    18. 2:16 AM ethnic discrimination ang tawag kung ginawa niya sa kapwa local which is still bad. Professional basketball ang PBA at hindi simpleng larong kanto lang FYI kaya huwag mong ikumpara ang sarili mo sa mga PBA players. Isa pa, sabi dito sa article na Santos said that "the move was done in an attempt at playing mind games with Jones". Therefore, tama lang na may penalty si Santos for his racist monkey antics directed towards Jones. Also, you and Santos should learn to be more sensitive. Isa kasi sa most common traits ng racists ay insensitivity. FYI lang ulit. Parang ignorante ka rin kasi

      Delete
    19. 2:16 kasi po related sa skin color. Tatawagin mo bang unggoy ang isang white person? I doubt. Hindi porke ginagawa mo nung bata eh tama na. Kaya nga kinocorrect na eh. Alam mo ba kung anong dinanas ng mga blacks noon? Sana malaman mo para maintindahan mo where their sensitivity is coming from.

    20. People like 2:16 is everything that is wrong in this world

    21. 8:05 saan niya sinabi yun? Na direktang si Jones yung monkey na pinoportray niya at hindi siya na nagmomonkey around? E di Racist nga siya.

    22. Hoy 11:41 ako ba umapi sa kanila nuon? Ako ba nagpunta sa Africa at nagconclude na ang tao galing sa unggoy? Merong puti na mga mukhang unggoy yung mga Australiano at mga Europeans! Sila nagpakalat na tao galing sa unggoy!

    23. Bakit bata ka pa ba? Professional league yun, nde basketball sa kanto.

    24. 1:52 Read the second to the last sentence of the article. For your convenience:

      "Santos refused to apologize hours after Game 5, saying that the move was done in an attempt at playing mind games with Jones."

    25. Bakit 9:02 AM African American ba si Allan K? Was it done in bad faith and done to play mind games on Allan K? Ikaw ang malabo and super ignorante - not only nowadays but yesterday, today and probably until the end of time.

    27. Hay naku 2:07 PM! 11:41 AM is not even talking about the theory of evolution. It's not just mere aesthetics gaya ng pinapalabas mo when it comes to some Caucasians looking like monkeys. It goes beyond that when it comes to African Americans. Tsaka ang non-involvement mo sa discrimination nila noon doesn't give you the right, privilege or license to be insensitive and ignorant on racism towards African Americans.

  29. It's already 2019 and there are still stupid racists like this Arwind Santos. Being light skinned does not make you a superior being. And what kind of penalty was that??? 200K only?? Slap him with millions in terms of penalty and ban him forever as a player para matuto sya

    ReplyDelete
  30. You also have to understand the cultural and racial implication of what he said. Calling an African-American "monkey" is almost as bad as the N word.
    Nung panahon ng civil war, plantation owners said na di dapat bigyan ng freedom ang black slaves because they're not humans, they're close to monkeys.

    Imagine the impact of that. Ngayon nyo sabihin na nang-aasar lang si Arwind.
