According to Ai-Ai's counsel, Atty. Charo Rejuso-Munsayac, the said resolution "endangers the freedom of expression of artists," which jeopardizes their livelihood, CNN reported.

She said that this will make artists wary of accepting satire projects out of fear of being "cancelled" by the public.

The resolution was submitted by District IV Councilor Ivy Lagman, who found the act disrespectful.

"The malicious and unscrupulous defacing of the official seal of Quezon City ridiculed and casted dishonor to it, causing insult to the noble representation of the seal," said Lagman.

Philstar reported that along with Ai-Ai, Direk Darryl Yap was also declared by the council as persona non grata.

As per Philippine News Agency, the director said an interview with SMNI that he accepts the repercussions of his actions.
