The country’s leading print media with national circulation Inquirer got hold of a copy of the controversial three-minute video clip showing some part of the proclamation rally of Eugenio Ynion Jr., the village chief of San Antonio and a candidate for mayor in San Pedro City, Laguna under the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC).
Based upon the video posted by Inquirer on YouTube it showed a man wearing a shirt printed with “#akoatsiynion,” seated onstage, as five female dancers, wearing skimpy denim shorts and crop tops under white hoodies, surrounded him. Although the video don’t have the needed audio, it clearly showed the women dancing and hunching over.
The video also showed the woman then blindfolded the man and signaled for a gay man to come on stage and dance, pretending to be one of the female dancers.
The entire incident was caught on camera and happened while Ynion and members of his slate were seated onstage, also seen in the said viral video the former governor of Laguna Gov. Jorge “ER” Ejercito, who is seeking reelection under UNA and he was invited as a guest to the proclamation rally.
In an interview with Inquirer, the mayoral candidate Ynion said that the performance in the viral video was something he was not consulted. He was quoted as saying “we were not consulted about,” he also added further that “My wife and I vehemently abhor [the performance]. It was something we, too, did not like,” Ynion said.
