Oh no! This has been what some viewers have been worrying about after they saw Anne Curtis in a high-slit gown on ASAP 18 last Sunday.
As stated in its successive tweets this afternoon, MTRCB will be conducting an investigation over Anne Curtis' dress and her number on ASAP 18 last Feb. 24, and has summoned tha ABS-CBN musical variety show to do its own gender-sensitivity investigation.
"MTRCB summons ASAP to gender-sensitivity investigation over alleged provocative outfit of one of its stars last Sunday."
"MTRCB to investigate ASAP over provocative number and outfit of one of the show's performers last Sunday."
"Citing its Memo of Understanding w/ABS-CBN, et al to ensure gender-sensitivity, MTRCB calls ASAP over provocative number."
"On the ASAP issue, MTRCB shall always endeavor to give all concerned the chance to be heard."
ABS-CBN is yet to release its statement on the issue.
Probably aware that MTRCB has already entered the picture, Anne Curtis has just shared a photo of her controversial gown on Instagram, with a lengthy post defending her gown last Sunday. According to her, she had a bodysuit with a hidden tangga.
annecurstissmith: "TAAAADAAA! I present to you the controversial @boomita outfit I wore for my birthday number on ASAP. As you can see we have a bodysuit with a hidden tangga to make way for the sky high slit skirt. It is made out of 2 pieces. In fact the "tangga" is made out of swimsuit material which Boom Sason is also known for making. I was completely protected. It may have seemed like a wardrobe malfunction to many but I can assure you, after making the mistake of not securing myself once I wouldn't let that happen to me again. :) So to settle all your minds I just had to post this. Thank you to everyone that was concerned! To everyone that's trying to make an issue out of it! Thank you! ABSCBN news just told me its their most clicked on video on their site ever! Just relax everyone! Wearing a tangga is no newbie in the industry! It's been around since the 80's :)"
