Ryzza Mae Dizon's dignity violated in own show, says MTRCB
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has expressed concern over "child-unfriendly" scenes in "Eat Bulaga" and "The Ryzza Mae Show," which both include child actress Ryzza Mae Dizon.
MTRCB has called for a mandatory conference with representatives of the two shows, as well as Dizon's mother, on Thursday (September 5).
It said some scenes from the two programs "palpably violate the dignity of" Dizon.
MTRCB was referring to a scene in the July 29 episode of "Eat Bulaga" where comedian Vic Sotto spat juice into the face of Dizon; and the August 14 episode of "The Ryzza Mae Show" where a guest told Dizon "landing bata ka."
'LANDING BATA KA' INCIDENT.
Gelsa, the winner, was very talkative that when Ryzza asked where she lives, she answered, “From Cavite po. Bakit? Pupunta ka?”
And when Ryzza asked if she’s still studying, she said, “Hindi po, nagwo-work na ako. Ba’t mukha ba akong nag-aaral? Mukha ba ‘kong estudyante?”
Ryzza, as bibo as she is, answered back in her usual polite manner, but viewers could tell the 8-year-old host had been intimidated. From the time Gelsa went on stage, actually, Ryzza showed signs of uneasiness with her very short shorts and kirigestures, and honestly, we couldn’t blame the child.
To top it off, the Gelsa girl mouthed a word that’s a no-no to describe an 8-year-old, much more the host of the show that she’s in.
When Ryzza asked if she already has a boyfriend, Gelsa said, “Meron, bakit aagawin mo? Bata-bata mo pa ha! Landing bata ‘to… Landing bata ka ha!”
Ryzza acted alarmed. “Ate ‘wag ha. Dahan-dahan,” she said calmly, while looking at someone, perhaps a staff of the show or her mom. She perhaps knew that the behavior of the winner was unbecoming for a morning show, or she was offended by the word “landi.”
“Ikaw naman ang sungit mo sa ‘kin,” Ryzza added, but still not showing signs of anything other than being the host of the live show who is responsible for how things will go. Very professional, indeed.
The good part, and Ryzza’s revenge, came when Gelsa refused to get her prize, insisting on taking Ryzza home instead.
“Ayoko n’yan,” Gelsa said, referring to the P2,000 and a pillow. “Gusto ko ikaw!”
“Ay hindi po,” Ryzza answered. “Ayaw n’yo po ba ng premyo? Pwede ko pong ibigay sa iba.”To the audience, Ryzza immediately said: “Sino’ng gusto ng premyo?”
She then proceeded to give the prize to an old woman seated in the audience even when Gelsa took back her words and said she already wants it. The live audience cheered, probably not because of the prize being given to an old woman, but because Ryzza did the right thing to the bastos winner.
Gelsa was obviously surprised, perhaps not realizing that her bad jokes would be on her.

"The MTRCB hopes in the cooperation of those concerned in finding out what caused these scenes, who are responsible therefor, and what immediate and concrete measures can be done so they do not happen again. In this connection, the MTRCB reiterates its serious and urgent concern for the welfare of children, who are most vulnerable in media and entertainment," MTRCB said.
