Willing Willie Suspended ?

Is Willing Willie Suspended, Officially ?

Willing Willie suspension over Jan-Jan case

Nope, not yet official as MTRCB is expected to determine today, April 7 2011, whether the Willing Willie show will be suspended or not. The possible suspension is said to be based on March 12, 2011 airing of Willing Willie most known as the Jan-Jan case.

The debate will be ground whether the six years old boy was exploited or not.

MTRCB Chairman Grace Poe-Llamanzares, the daughter of the late Fernando Poe, said, "There are talks of a preventive suspension. That's one option."

However, one MTRCB official, who want to remain anonymous because he was not an authorized MTRCB spokesperson, said that - "There's no question about the suspension. What is being discussed is for how long."

"The suspension would be a message that the Board won't tolerate shows that denigrate human dignity especially when it involves children." he further added.

MTRCB's Hearing and Adjudication Committee started the preliminary conference last Monday. The hearing includes getting the side of TV5 network, the statements from the Department of Social Welfare and Development and Commission on Human Rights as well as the inputs from psychologist Honey Carandang.

MTRCB chair, Grace Poe-Llamanzares noted, "Kaya nga pinag-aaralan naming mabuti kasi ayaw naming abusuhin ang aming kapangyarihan...Merong fine, merong suspension ng show, merong suspension ng network kung saka-sakali. Ayaw nating humantong [sa ganito]. Alam nating maraming taong dumedepende sa trabaho nila dito sa ating industriya pero dapat naman nating itama kung saka-sakaling may nagkamali."

It is recalled that the controversial March 12, 2011 episodes of Willing Willie had caused the show snow ball effect damages. First, the pull-out of Jollibee's Mang Inasal advertisement spots and then this possible suspension of the show.

How about you, do you think the whole show - Willing Willie must be suspended?

Let's our voices be heard !

Here's a complete video collection regarding the case:


  1. kaya lang naman umiiyak yung bata dahil daw natakot kay bonel balingit eh, at yun ay ayon mismo sa mga magulang ng bata at ni Jan-Jan mismo.
    Eh kung macho dancing ang tinurong talent sa kanya eh ano naman ang kinalaman ng Willing Willie dun noh?!

    Mga detractors lang ni Willie ang nagpalaki lang ng isyung ito.
    naku naman...

    I believe that Willing Willie had learnt their lesson, but I don't think it should reach suspension.

  2. bulag kb? dpat masuspend ang willing willie... pinasayaw pa nga ni willie un bata sa nag-eelevate na stage before commercial break... the child was abused at dpat mapenalize sila s ginawa nla...!

  3. siguro, we just have to let it go.
    maganda naman yung programa at natuto na nga siguro silang lahat.

    but kung masususpindi sila, siguro eh okay na yung two to three days.

  4. nasuspend po ba talaga?

  5. ano ba ang kasalanan ni willie?

  6. lahat kayo mali..... napnood ko ang segment na yan na sumayaw si jan jan at di naman pinilit eh nasaan yung child abuse? as for willie naman dapat hinay hinay sa pagpapatawa

  7. to be fair..

    di ba bago sumali mga contestant nag kakaroon pa sila ng rehersal..

    tapos isasabak pa sila sa show.. dapat dun p lng.. binago n ang talent ng bata..

    eto reason ko...

    willing wilie is a tv show.. at general patronage yan... meaning to say.. di lang matatanda na nu nuod dyan.. may mga bata rin..

    ang mali lng ng show.. pinayagan pa nila gawin yung talent ng macho dancing.. sana binago n lng nila yung talent..

    pero sana suspended lang.. wag naman totally tangaling ang show..

    kasi marami rin ang napapasaya ng willing wilie na show.

    it serve as a lesson n lng cguro...

  8. puro kayo pangengealam!! intindinhin nio problema ng buhay nio!! hahaha nde sa ibng tao :D yan ang problem sa inyo di rin nmn kau perpekto wag na kau magkoment ng di maganda di kau magkakapera dyan! hahaha

  9. wala alam si willie sa talent ng bata alam ng mga taong nakanood nian siguro tanungin nio nlng magulang ng bata bago kau magkoment ng di maganda.... dapat nio problemahin buhay nio tame ba? hahaha
