The Baguio City council on Friday declared comedienne Candy Pangilinan as “persona non grata” by a majority vote.

Councilor Tomas Balisong said that the declaration was in reaction to Pangilinan’s remark during her pre-Mother’s Day show at SM Baguio last Saturday, May 9 where she reportedly greeted the crowd with “Tao po ako, hindi po ako Igorot.”

This means that the comedienne is now banned from going to the summer capital and her movies are also banned from being shown in the city’s theaters.

Candy has posted apology after apology to tell those who cried foul when she actually meant “Igorot statue.” She admitted not being able to say the word “statue,” but that was what she really meant. To prove this, Pangilinan’s group is planning to launch a fund-raiser to benefit Cordillerans.
