Comedian Dennis Padilla maintained he will never mock the LGBTQ+ community, citing his own daughter as among them.
“My daughter is married to a woman in the States. My eldest daughter Dianne, who is 30 years old, is married to Katx who is also a woman. And I respect them because mahal ng anak ko eh,” he was quoted to have said in an article published on Pep.Ph.
“So nang ikasal sila sa Amerika, I was happy for them. Ako pa ba ang babastos sa LGBTQ eh ‘yung daughter ko, asawa babae? Legally married sila sa California,” he reiterated.
Dennis is among cast members of “PakBoys: Takusa,” which, according to Miss Trans Global 2020 Mela Franco Habijan, mocked their gender in some scenes.
She called for the disqualification of the film.
