In a video, staff and crew of "Ang Probinsyano," along with co-actors and co-actresses, responded to the accusations of Journalie Payonan, a cameraman who accused Coco Martin of so many negative things. They answered each and every accusation and after their statement, a foregone conclusion was reached.
Below are the statements of AP's staff and crew for every accusation hurled at Coco Martin:
Accusation No. 1: Coco Martin talks harshly at stuntmen
"Wag mo ipagkalandakan ng todo kung di nangyari sayo mismo... Yung mga nagsasabing masama daw ang ugali ni Coco, nagpasalin-salin lang yan sa bibig ng kung sinu-sino."
Benzon Dalina, stuntman
"Ang mga kaibigan niy utiiity, crowd control, stuntman. Yan lagi yung mga kakwentuhan niya, nakakasalamuha niya, kasama sa pagkain."
"Si Direk Coco, hindi madamot sa camera yan. Parating sinasabi niyan, pag ang camera ay nasa inyo, ibigay niyo na ang buong arte, dahil yan ang chance niyong makilala."
Lebron Dawal, assistant location manager
"Tropa po namin kung ituring si Coco. Ganun din po siya sa amin. Di po tulad ng ibang artista na mababa yung tingin sayo kasi crowd control ka lang o utility ka lang."
Star Dejano, make-up artist
"Pantay-pantay yung kanyang pagtingin sa bawat isa sa amin."
"Pagdating po niyan sa set, nakangiti na po yan. Babatiin po kami niyan. Di lang po basta bati. Tatapikin po kami niyan."
Conclusion: Accusation 1 is false, as per the statements of Coco Martin's co-workers.
Accusation 2: Coco Martin pours water on utility men on the set
Bassilyo stated that Journalie was not even there. Another cameraman testified that Journalie was talking about a rag, and it was a "harutan" between them so that their tiredness will disappear. In fact, the person whom Coco "soaked" with water was an actor.
Another co-director said that it was they who were ganging up on Coco, trying to get him wet.
Conclusion: Accusation 2 is false, as per statements of Coco Martin's co-workers.
In the 8-minute video clip, the staff and crew of "Ang Probinsyano" revealed and contradicted the accusations by the former cameraman.
Aside from the two accusations mentioned above, there were other accusations that were addressed head-on by the staff of AP.
In a previous KAMI report, Coco Martin was very passionate about airing out his sentiments when ABS-CBN was shut down. He asked, why close ABS-CBN, when it is helping so many people.
