In response to Dingdong Dantes’ letter to the producers of ABS-CBN’s show, Ang Probinsyano, the latter’s production team sent their apology over the usage and alteration of Dantes family photos citing a third party contractor who was hire to create photo props. The matter is apparently being investigated further to prevent similar incidents in the future. Well, here’s a brilliant and noble idea, just do a photoshoot with the actors who are actually playing the characters on the show itself. I mean, that would be logical, right?
MANILA, Philippines – The team behind FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano has apologized to actors Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera over the use of their family photos without permission.
“FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano apologizes to Dingdong Dantes and his family and assures that there was no intent to disrespect or offend him and his family in the use of their photos in the program,” ABS-CBN said in a statement on behalf of the show.
“The production team commissioned a third-party contractor to create the photo props used in the program. It was not aware that the original of the photographs used were those from Mr. Dantes’ wedding and the baptism of his daughter,” it added in the statement issued early Tuesday afternoon, August 14.
The incident is already being investigated. “The program is conducting further investigation to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future.” (source: rappler)
