An episode of the Kapuso teleserye “The Stepdaughters” has become controversial.
KAMI learned that a netizen, who is a physical therapist, slammed the show for one of its characters’ comment about her profession.
The character Daphne Sorian, played by Samantha Lopez, told a fictional physical therapist in the episode: “You’re just a physical therapist. You’re not a doctor, not a nurse! Ngayon, kung wala kang magawa, masahihin mo na lang ako. Tutal, ‘yan naman ang trabaho mo, di ba?”
For this reason, the Pinay netizen commented on Facebook:
“We didn’t spend hours and sleepless nights of studying for 5 YEARS just for you to call us ‘masahista.’ HOW DARE YOU, GMA!”
She also uploaded a video of the controversial scene:
Netizens gave mixed reactions about the controversy:
“What's the problem with this. Eh, palabas lang naman to sa TV. Tas Contrabida ung nagsalita.”
“Ang problema po yung mga mahihirap na kababayan naten, mga nasa liblib na lugar, yung walang alam sa physical therapy na imbes na lumapit samen sa karamdaman nila ay lumalapit sa masahista at mga hilot at kung anu pa dahil hindi nila alam ang physical therapy.”
“Shame on GMA IF YOU HAVE CALLED PHYSICAL THERAPISTS ‘masahista.’ That’s a sign of IGNORANCE!!”
“context naman.... eh drama kontrabida yan eh... hinahamak niya yung isa”
“ang problema po kapag napanood yan ng mga taong di aware sa ginagawa ng PT eh maniniwala cla jan sa pinoportray nio sa TV..ung bang ibang professions may ginaganyan din kau?”
The Stepdaughters also stars Katrina Halili and Megan Young.
The teleserye is about two women who dislike each other and later became stepsisters when their parents married each other.
