Mr. Wowowee himself got into trouble during the aired Wowowee show on Cory Aquino’s Funeral. It is uncertain whether the show along with Willie Revillame has been suspended or whether he just needs some time for himself, what we know about is that Revillame is not to be seen on any episode of ABS-CBN’s popular noon time show Wowowee. Hundreds of Online Users reacted negatively to his plead to have the live broadcast of the Cory Aquino Funeral to be removed during his show or have the show stopped and watch the funeral instead, as according to him, it is very difficult to be happy when seeing the coffin of the late President Aquino. Willie was asked to leave for an indefinite time by Monday but disappeared since the Saturday broadcast of the said noon-time show. We are not certain whether he will return or how the future of his show will be like in the next couple of days.
Most especially after the numerous online petitions going on to have the show stopped. Again, he has not been directly suspended, but from what we can deduce about the Willie Revillame indefinite leave from the show, it is like he has been suspended. He might have been suspended, but he left earlier than asked which leaves us puzzled about this issue and certain other aspects.
Why Boycott Wowowee and Suspend Willie?
A lot have been asking this question. Even I, most especially people who sympathize for Willie’s dear reaction of choosing (I don’t sympathize him nor otherwise), whether to have the show going or have the funeral going on National Television, but not both at the same time. Personally, it was a good choice that he has voiced out his concern there, for ABS CBN to pick one of the two options, since it is really not that nice to watch a happy show knowing that one very influential women to the Philippines, if not to the whole world in terms of delivering enhanced aspects to democracy passed away. I can’t quiet get why people are so insanely after the closure of the said show aired during noon.
Willie Revillame’s Mistake
ONE thing that might have raised the anger of the masses could be that Willie offered the choice to have either his show or the funeral aired on ABS CBN, when we could have insisted of running it instead and have Cory Aquino highlight or television shows for a few more additional hours of attention (I’m not saying she does not deserves it, because she truthfully does)
ON ABS-CBN Stand
ON the other hand, I have to say that it was a bad idea that ABS aired the funeral alongside the happy show. I believe that it wasn’t Willie who paid the least respect to Cory Aquino but ABS-CBN for their crucial erroneous decision. The best thing that I could say about this move is it showcased their insensitivity and probable greed of money that they can make from Wowowee by airing it simultaneously being the faithful Cory Aquino Followers by having it sidelined on the television sets of people watching from home. Willie is right, it isn’t good to be happy seeing someone of such great influence who passed away dead in her coffin.
What is the deal about it?
Still I feel puzzled about the real deal behind it. People say Willie has become arrogant and is not worthy of all the attention he gets and all the viewers who watch his show, I’m not saying that more people should get hooked at noon watching him, but nevertheless do I support the said statement, there was nothing wrong with what he said, and if there was, I bet he let go of the words with no intention of harming anyone. If anyone encounters the same realization as I do, is a Wowowee Suspension still an option for you? Or would be rightful for Willie Revillame to be suspended?
