PBB All In apologizes over nude painting session challenge

ABS-CBN's reality tv series "Pinoy Big Brother: All In" has apologized for its controversial "nude painting challenge," which aired last June 4.

The statement, released Wednesday, was made after the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) met the Kapamilya network regarding the "alleged gender-insensitivity" of the challenge.

The statement reads:
Pinoy Big Brother All In gave a task to a female housemate and three (3) other housemates aired within the June 4 and 5 episodes of the program. The said task was the subject of the mandatory conference called by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) this morning, which also included the concerns raised by the Philippine Commission on Women, among other parties.

While the objective of the week-long task was to see how the housemates would react to a test of their convictions and values, and was not intended to disrespect the rights of any housemate, the producers wish to convey their sincerest apologies to those who were offended, and assure the public and the MTRCB that the program will continue to ensure the protection of women's rights in general, and housemates' rights in particular, while providing quality and yet gender and audience-sensitive entertainment to its audiences worldwide."
