A group of sexy starlets stripped in a pictorial held in front of a Catholic Church in Manila. This attracted the attention of an excited crowd. The police arrived to arrest them. The city council later declared them “persona non grata.” Reports say charges of grave scandal were filed in court against them.
The controversial shampoo beauties–Ivory Ibanez, Jeanette Joaquin, Kat de Santos, Kuhdet Honasan, Mikaela Monteverde, Palmolive Palma, Pantene Palomino, Rejoice Rivera–are now invoking freedom of expression.
We keep on crying for freedom, but we often forget that such freedoms come with responsibility. Let me ask you, dear readers, do you think these girls–or their handlers and managers–acted responsibly when they staged that infamous pictorial?
