University of the Philippines-Diliman student Khalil Verzosa uploaded a Facebook video of actor Baron Geisler physically attacking a young man holding a camera. Based on the detailed caption, Baron agreed to be a part of a student-produced project and allegedly lost his temper due to the delay in script. The actor has yet to issue a statement on the said incident.
This is what Verzosa said:
we had a school prod for an editorial design campaign, we got him to act, pumayag siya, tapos inayos namin yung script, natagalan ng mga ilang oras at since students kami daming ginagawa so we were pressed with time, late nakapagcoordinate kay baron kaya late yung script na nabigay pero as a director, I made sure na morning ko masend na sa kanya at the very least, kasi maikli lang naman. natuloy kami at nagsorry nung dumating siya sa set pero nagpaparinig na siya na sana kasi maaga binigay yung script, so nagsorry pa rin kami kasi alam naman namin na kasalanan namin.
It’s not right to pick on us, we’re a still student prod, we put our hearts into this production and advocacy, kahit ako pa ang nagwaldas ng pera para lang mabayaran yang TF niya, wala talaga kaming budget at nagkaroon pa ng kaunting aberya. Baron Geisler, wala kang karapatan na mag beastmode, kaya sa tingin ko na dapat kong ipost ito. para makita ng lahat na mali yang ginagawa mo.
share niyo yung video para maturuan ng leksyon!!!
