Willie Revillame is more famous than ever.
March 12 - A six-year old boy was seen dancing like a "macho dancer", Filipino slang for male stripper, on Willie Revillame's Willing Willie show at TV5. The boy was dancing suggestively, with his family encouraging him and cheering with the audience, to win 10 thousand pesos.
Even ECPAT International and UNICEF are already doing an investigation about the said incident. I don't understand why everyone is blaming Willie and TV5. I think the boy's parents had a major role in the said controversial issue.
I am not defending Willie Revillame. What he did can have a lasting bad effect on the child's emotions. It's just right that his show goes off the air. But the parents, they we're supposed to protect their child. The boy's family even encouraged him to keep dancing in exchange for money, that's not right! If offered to win the most expensive car, by letting RJ dance like a male stripper -I will say "over my dead body". Not just because RJ can't dance like that boy but because it's my responsibility, as his parent, to protect him.
