Robin Padilla “Hayop Ka” Participation Urges Some To Boycott Film
HAYOP KA – The animator of the upcoming Netflix film “Hayop Ka” is being boycotted due to the participation of Robin Padilla.
Recently, Robin Padilla has been saying some controversial statements, especially regarding the government. As such, netizens took to Twitter to boycott the film which features the action star.
However, the animator of the film called for support as he and the team behind the much-awaited adult animation flick worked so hard on the project. Hayop ka would be the first full-length animation film from the country to be featured on Netflix.
Surely, this was a milestone for the entire animation community in the Philippines. As such, KevinKalbo appealed to the public on Twitter saying:
I’ve worked on this awesome film. Please don’t judge it by its VA. He doesn’t represent the movie as a whole. Thanks!
Furthermore, he said that if it were up to him, Robin would be auto-ejected from the project. However, he explained that he was merely one animator. Afterward, he asked the public to support the artists behind the film as they were the real stars of the project.
“Kung ako lang ang masusunod i-auto-eject ko na yun agad-agad. But alas, ako’y isang hamak na animator lamang. Support the artists who have worked hard on this project. Sila naman ang totoong bida dito”
Hayop ka would be available for streaming on Netflix starting October 29. The film features adult themes not usually portrayed in Philippine cinema. As such, netizens have long awaited this new breed of Filipino film makers, animators, and story tellers.
