Not that we’re keen to defend the virtue of airport officials, but then he mentioned that the immigration staff were smoking. NAIA may be hideous and congested but we’ve not noticed anyone smoking in the immigration queues.
Second question: Kickass and John Carter were in town and we had no idea? Oy, our radar has failed us. So we consulted Google and found that Savages, the Oliver Stone movie, was filmed in Indonesia. Could Kitsch be mistaken about the location of the incident? Jet lag?
Of course it could’ve happened here but before you hang your head in shame at what the world thinks of us (They don’t), verify.
The report in the ABS-CBN news site is based on the same Letterman interview but there has been no independent verification. Who’s got a lead? Whose PR disaster: the Philippines’s, or Mr Kitsch’s (He’s got a movie opening here soon)?
Thanks to brewhuh for the alert.
0030. ABS-CBN has unpublished the report on its website.
It appears that Kitsch was not in the Philippines.
