A lot of people have been leaving their comments on the Willie Revillame entries on this blog. Among the better ones is from Proud and Hopeful Pinoy, because it resonates my own views on Willie Revillame.
Proud and Hopeful Pinoy's comment:
He is making money out of people's misery. ABS-CBN is keeping him because of all the money he is making. His show is one long commercial that runs for 4 hours. At what costs? He is banking on poverty and ignorance of our fellow Filipinos. He is espousing a culture of handouts. He is encouraging people to be poor because when the poorer you are more people would help you and give you money. Behind all these, he is making 1000x more money for himself because our poor brothers and sisters are crying on TV and dancing amidst humiliation.The program itself lacks artistry and creativity. His songs are repetitive and poor in quality. The women are disrespected in so many ways in the show. the comedy is poor and offensive.I can go on and on how the show corrupts many sectors in our society today and in the future.The current incident is just one of the many faults and offenses by the show, all because of the host. Afterall he is the mastermind of it all proudly claiming he doesn't have a life anymore because of all the hardwork he puts into the show.Sadly, just like corruption in our country, I am doubtful any action will be taken. I can only think of one reason: MONEY. We all know what's wrong with the show. We can feel how offensive and how it corrupts our society. Yet no one's taking action. ABS-CBN is not doing anything because of the money it generates. Mr.Revillame won't change his ways because of the money it generates. Politicians and government officials won't do anything because we have to admit many of those who support Wowowee constitute majority of our voters.That's why action won't be taken.ABS-CBN is money hungry. WILLIE REVILLAME is money hungry.As a consequence of the greediness of these people, media will continually corrupt our society.Lastly, when Chip Tsao called us servants we were all agitated. How come now that Wowowee is showing that we are our country of beggars instead of working in the middle of the day are lounging in the studio waiting for our chance to be winners, we seem to be apathetic.I said "seem" because I'm sorry Mr. Revillame but there are Filipinos like me who see how hypocrite you are and we will sign that petition a million times to save our country from bad influences like you.
