CHR Condemns 2 Politicians Over Viral “Kandong” Video

Commission on Human Rights Condemns 2 Politicians Over Controversial Video

The Commission on Human Rights is condemning the alleged inappropriate act of two politicians in viral “kandong” video.

Last week, the video footage of a singer politician and its fellow official goes viral making ‘kandong’ to a female campaign rally attendee. The video garnered various reactions from the online community.

The video shows Cabuyao, Laguna Councilor Tutti Caringal is making a unique style to convince his constituents to vote for him on the upcoming May 2022 elections.


After a few moments, Caringal went near to lady attendee then sing for her and suddenly sits at the woman’s lap. He even removed his face mask in the middle of the performance but eventually stands to entertain the other attendees.

A few seconds later, Calamba mayor Timmy Chipeco also imitates Caringal’s action by making “kandong” to the same lady just for fun. The crowd even cheered for the politicians during the event.

The video goes viral and caught the attention of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR). The agency condemned the alleged inappropriate action of Caringal and Chipeco during the campaign rally.

Atty. Twyla Rubin condemned the politicians’ act and called the “Kandong” act as “nakakabastos”.

“Kinukondena natin ang act niton gating mga kandidato dahil nakikita namin na yung ginawa nila sa kampanyang iyon ay nakakabastos sa mga kababaihan ito rin ay nag iinsulto at nagpapakita ng di pagrespeto hindi lamang sa mga kababaihan pati na rin sa mga opisina na kanilang pinanghahawakan,” Rubin said.


However, Caringal sees nothing wrong with his action because it was just pure fun and the people have joy and fun during the campaign rally.
