    Arnold Clavio's Statement After The Azkals Issue On A Morning Show: Read It Now!



    For the past few days, the World of Philippine Football has been shaken by an issue involving GMA 7's Mr. Arnold Clavio and The Philippine Azkals.

    The issue started when Mr. Arnold Clavio said something on a Morning Show "Unang Hirit." His statement steam rolled and became viral online.

    Here's a transcript of what he said in the show.

    "Ang gagwapo niyo diba...Hindi ko kayo ka kultura. Kasi wala dito (pointing to his heart) at wala dito (pointing to his head) 'eh. Di naman kayo Pilipino. Nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi...."

    I don't know if what he said is offensive enough, but it proved to be enough to catch the attention of the Millions of Filipino Football fanatics in and around the world. In fact, it became viral on Twitter and on Facebook. It also became a hot topic online as the haters as well as the fanatics of the Philippine Azkals shared their opinions regarding the issue.

    In between those heated arguments, here comes the Official statement of Mr. Arnold Clavio regarding the said issue courtesy of gmanetwork.com.

    "Mga igan, nakakalungkot na may negatibong reaksyon ang naging pahayag ko tungkol sa Philippine Azkals kaugnay ng sexual harassment complaint ni Ms. Cristy Ramos. Wala po akong ganoong intensyon. Ang isyu po rito ay sexual harassment at kung may nagamit man po akong mga salita na hindi angkop, nagpapakumbaba po ako at humihingi ng pang-unawa. Dun naman po sa mga kasama kong nanindigan laban sa sexual harassment, maraming salamat po. Seryoso pong isyu ito na dapat bantayan."


    I just hope that this is enough to settle the issue once and for all. After all, we all love our very own Philippine Azkals and Philippine Football.

    ARNOLD CLAVIO'S COMMENT IS OBVIOUSLY STUPID AND RACIST. IF HE WOULD BE REFERRING ALONE TO THE ALLEGED SEXUAL HARRASMENT THEN IT IS NO NEED FOR HIM TO DUEL WITH PERIPHERAL THINGS MORE SO ON SAYING DI KAYO PILIPINO OR NAGPAPANGGAPLANG KAYONG KAYUMANGI. HE IS COMPLETELY A NUTTER. COCONUT HEAD.

    siguro hindi ka rin Filipino, kalahi ka rin nila kaya ka nasaktan. Lumayas kayo dito sa bansang Pilipinas, hindi ninyo ito tahanan!

    maybe what he meant was that they are not Filipinos by heart

    Filipino men are known to be gentlemen not the way this Azkal members have acted...Sorry to Angel Locsin but maybe Phil is not the one in question here but as supposed to be the leader of the team he should discipline his members and teach them how to be gentlemen...let's not avoid the real issue.

    ANG PILAK BALUTIN MO MAN NG GINTO PILAK PARIN SIYA. ANG TUNAY NA GINTO IBABAD MO MAN SA APOY MANANATILING GINTO. ANG PAGYURAK SA DANGAL NG BABAENG PILIPINA AY TAHASANG PAGYURAK SA DANGAL NG PILIPINAS NA KANYANG SINISIMBOLO. HINDI ITUTULOT NG TUNAY NA MAY ARI NA MAPASAMA ANG KANYANG PAG AARI. ANG TUNAY NA PILIPINO MALINAW NA ALAM NG LAHAT, PILIPINO SA ISIP, SA SALITA AT SA GAWA.

    inggit si arnold clavio, kase nga ampanget nya. pero tama talaga na maraming mga miyembro ng azkals ang pera peralang at kasikatan ang gusto di talaga isinasabuhay ang pagiging maginoo na gustong maging trait ng pinoy. mga ugaling kano na may pagka arogante at mataas ang tingin sa sarili. pero totoo man o hindi, tunay na maraming pilipino ang mga bastos. puro man o hindi

    "...nagpapakumbaba po ako at humihingi ng pang-unawa." He is asking for understanding and not apologies. Those are two different words. Ang yabang lang...

    yeah apologies and understanding are two different words...If I were in Arnold's shoes I will say the same since there is no reason for me to apologize the azkals really did misbehave and that is a fact but then he realizes that not everyone understands his viewpoint with that he humbly seeks understanding...where is the "yabang" there?

    igan should be really sorry for what he said. azkals made a mistake on the harrasment thing only. i think he doesnt have the right to insult a person. he must not judge a person on the 1 thing he did wrong.

    sa totoo lang kung gusto talaga nating maging proud pinoy sa larong football dapat ang sports commission natin mag umpisa ng mag train ng mga home grown talents hindi yun cross breeds, parang sinasabi kasi natin sa buong mundo na magaling lang ang mga pinoy kapag nahaluan ng ibang lahi ang dugo...sabi nila they are proud to be Filipino, talaga? eh ano ba nag alam nila sa pagiging pinoy? ni hindi nga sila maka salita ng diretsong tagalog

    All of a sudden dami nagalit kay arnold dahil sa nasabi niya out of disappointment sa inasal ng mga iilan sa Azkals.. it's not the first time some of them were involved on the same kind of issue.. The issue here is kung ano yung nagawa nung iba sa Azkals.. obviously they are mad on arnold not because of the "racist" remark "daw" but because natatapakan para sa kanila yung mga idol nilang pogi.. na tama naman si arnold, they were just happen to be filipino by blood but their attitude is very unfilipino. Look at the content of what he said as a whole, not just the last part which is nakakaasar para sa inyo kung die hard Azkals kayo no matter what

    out of context kasi mga comments ni Arnold, thou siguro hindi intentional, pero it's a racist comments talaga, eh di ba may kaso na naman ata against the azkal member na nambastos, oh ano pang problema niya, di na nga nagdakdak ng husto yong Ramos na yon, at dapat ang binanatan nya, eh ung sports commission ng Pinas na dapat mag train at humanap ng mga pure blooded at homegrown players, para di na mag import ng mga half pinoy player (imported), kesa naman ng discrimate pa sya, yan tuloy sa tagal nyang naging mahusay na broadcaster, sa mga naging walang kwentang komento nya nabawasan ang paghanga at respeto ng mga manonood sa kanya, alam nya naman yan na bilang mamamahayag dapat maging responsable sa mga sasabihing salita. Maiintindihan pa sana sya ng mga haters nya kung ung program nila e yong katulad ng T3...!

    Lahat ng tao mapa-Filipino o hindi ay entitled sa freedom of speech.mapa-broadcaster, o hindi.mapa-artista o politika. Bilang isang tax payer at sports fan at the same time, nakakadismaya makakita ng news about athletes being supported by tax(mandatory by law, though just portion of our tax goes to the budget of PSC)payers. Tama lang naman sinabi ni Arnold. Ang gravity nga lang ng message nya differs from one to another person. He meant Filipino heart. yung word na kayumanggi eh hindi literal. Ang ibig nyang sabihin ay Filipino. Kung hindi nambastos ung sports celebrities na yun, hindi magkakaron ng pagkakataon na ma highlight ang freedom of speech ni Arnold. Wag natin gawin ang bagay na ayaw natin gawin satin ng kapwa natin.
