The photo, which was uploaded on Facebook, shows a young female, believed to be under the influence of intoxicating liquor, being molested by her drinking buddies.
The viral photo prompted the Bacolod City Police Office to conduct an investigation if the alleged sexual abuse really took place in Bacolod, CoolBuster cited.
Some of the netizens who identified the female even commented that the photo was taken from one of the most visited-bars in Bacolod City along Lacson Street while others shared that it was taken from “wet and wild” party in the city. The photo that has been making the rounds online was taken from the DYNAMIC PULSE Party of Playmate Nation held in Marikina last February 14, 2015.
Not too long ago, a “council” called Pilipinas Underground apologized through its Facebook page for a viral photo taken in one of the parties on Valentine’s Day.
Here’s the full statement:
PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND would like to apologize about the viral picture roaming around the social networking sites recently. This photo was taken from the DYNAMIC PULSE Party of Playmate Nation held in Marikina last February 14, 2015.
The organizers of the said event is NOT LEGIT and REGISTERED under PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND, as one of the organization governing and protecting all productions over Metro Manila. We have sets of rules and policies to limit and secure not only the event itself but the patron as well.
The organization has no idea about this.
As much as we want to make a peaceful, respectful, and enjoyable events we do not have the power to control youths nowadays in creating parties like being mentioned above. Hence, we are calling the attention of all “party goers” to be keen fully in attending parties that are NOT LEGIT and REGISTERED production under PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND.
Soon enough, we will seek the help of the authorities to elimate and vanquish this kind of organizers in the field.
We, the PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND, is looking forward for your deep understanding and active participation to this advocacy.
Please spread. Thank you!
-Pilipinas Underground Council”
Let’s consider that something like this could happen on different bars, campus, at any party places, wet or dry.
Our personal view is that people should be held responsible for the choices we make when voluntarily intoxicated. If we get drunk and go out for a drive, our intoxication is not an excuse — it’s an element of a crime. Drunkenness impairs judgment, but we know that and bear moral responsibility for actions we take when our judgement is impaired due to our own choices. Obviously, it would be a different story if were drugged against our will or knowledge.
