According to Sumaya, the guard asked for his ID before entering the building. Unfortunately, the actor has no identification card because GMA did not give them any company ID.

Dala ko pa yung damit ko, sabi ko [sa guard]: ‘Hi, kuya!’ Yung naka-smile ka talaga, Sabi sa ‘ken [ng guard], ‘ID mo?,'” Betong said.

One of the security personnel told the guard that Sumaya is one of the celebrities in GMA. The latter explained that he is an actor but the guard seems to be hesitant to believe him.

Akala niya siguro utility [man] ako o ano,” Betong added.

The guard apologized to the actor for failing to recognize him as an artist. The personnel also explained that he was just performing the duty assigned to him as well as ensuring the safety of employees inside the building.

The guard and Sumaya were no close friends.
