Claudine Barretto went to the Women’s Rights group, Gabriella, for counselling and to ask for their support after what happened at the NAIA3 with Mon Tulfo. Gabriela is giving Claudine what she asked for and released a statement a couple of days ago.
Ms. Barretto has endured not only physical pain but mental anguish as a result of the incident and the eventual threatening statements made by the brothers of Mr. Ramon Tulfo in their TV show. She fears for her family’s safety and security, knowing the extent of influence wielded by the Tulfo brothers,” the group said in its statement.
“While we respect the right of Mr. Tulfo as a journalist, we disagree with his journalistic manner and demeanor which is not only degrading and exploitative but smacks of bigotry and machismo,” it added.
“While we do not condone Ms. Barretto’s manner of confronting the Cebu Pacific staff for the inconvenience that her family encountered, and how she might have reacted to Mr. Tulfo, she and her family do not deserve, as no human being deserves, the violence they experienced,” the group said. (source)
