Hindi kami overacting! Mayor Alejandrino: We just want to protect Arayat’s image
Mayor Emmanuel Alejandrino on July 20 insisted that the local government is merely defending the municipality’s “already damaged” image in its plan to file a libel case against television network ABS-CBN over its portrayal of Arayat in its hit series “Ang Probinsiyano.”
Several social media commenters said the Arayat municipal government is “overacting” over a fictional TV series.
In its latest story arc, Coco Martin’s character, SPOT Ricardo Dalisay, is trying to eliminate a terrorist group based in Mount Arayat.
“Paanong overacting ‘yun? Kahit fictional lang ‘yan, ang pine-present ay totoong bayan at nakakaapekto na ito sa maling paraan. Fictional pa ba ‘yun? Gusto lang namin itama ang mali at protektahan ang bayan naming,” Alejandrino said.
The Arayat mayor also said “Ang Probinsiyano” touched on a sensitive part of the town’s history.
“Parang binalik nila kami dun sa panahon na tinalikuran namin e. Galing kami dun sa kaguluhan na ‘yun bago ako nakaupo. Parang pinitik nila ‘yung dating problema ng bayan na matagal namin inayos,” Alejandrino said.
