Internet action star and comedian Ramon Bautista was caught on cam calling Davao women as ‘shrimps’ or people who has a sexy body but a really ugly face during the Spectrum experience on Kadayawan 2014 held at Crocodile Park on August 16. ‘Hipons’ become pretty/handsome to some people just because they have a great body.
Here’s the video of Ramon’s ‘hipon’ joke:
This ‘hipon’ joke made former Davao City mayor Inday Sara Duterte post her outburst of emotions on Facebook and convinced their councilors that they should ‘declare him as persona non grata, if not they would also disservice all the women in their province.’
The ‘hipon’ joke is now a serious matter!
Ramon’s brand of humor does not sit well with Davao City’s powerful Duterte family. That prompted action from Davao City vice mayor Pulong Duterte, who said he spoke to the comedian about the remarks and made Ramon to go back on stage and apologize.
Here’s Ramon’s apology after the said incident:
“I’m here in front of you to say my apologies because sinabi ko ang daming hipon dito. Oo nga, nahihiya po ako sa inyo because you welcomed me in your beautiful city. Andito po ako lagi at nag-e-enjoy po ako dito. Para masabi ko po yung mga na marami sa inyo ang na-offend. I’ll say my sincerest apologies, sana po matanggap niyo. Andito po ako para makisaya sa Kadayawan Festival at para maging enjoyable ang gabing ito. From the bottom of my heart, sobrang nahihiya po ako sa inyong lahat. Sana mapatawad niyo po ako. Mahal ko po kayong lahat.”
