Baron did what?!
Actor Ping Medina’s post on his Facebook account—about the horrendous thing a drunk Baron Geisler did to him on a film set—went viral Monday evening, and understandably so.
Short of the long: According to Ping, a drunk Baron Geisler peed on him during a scene, where Ping’s hands and feet were wrapped together and his mouth sealed with packaging tape. “Napakabilis ng pangyayari. Naramdaman ko na lang na may bumabasa sa dibdib ko. Medyo mainit at may amoy,” Ping wrote. “Umagos ito. Basang basa ang shirt ko. Umagos ito hanggang sa bibig ko. Buti may nakatakip na tape.”
It was horrible, to say the least, and we’ll leave it to you to read the entirety of the post.
Director Arlyn Dela Cruz earlier posted on her Facebook account an open letter addressed to Baron Geisler, telling the actor how she had already killed his character in the movie, Bubog. “What you did on the set, for the film BUBOG is unacceptable and cannot be justified by any claim of being in character,” a portion of her letter read. “Ping Medina does not deserve what you did. No actor deserves that. No person deserves that.”
She continued: “You wanted four days of shoot. No, more 2nd, 3rd or 4th day with you. I have killed your character and the story and script will stand without you.”
Baron meanwhile has also posted on his Facebook account, explaining his side of the story. Yes he did say sorry to Direk Arlyn but he also continued to say it was a big misunderstanding.
But here’s where it gets truly unbelievable: Baron blames it on her. “I asked you three times na direk may gagawin po ako then you just said gawin mo nalang sa eksena. Kung tinanong nyo po ako kung ano yun di sana naiwasan ang mga bagay na ito. You are our captain sa set,” he says.
“But you were trying to pull off a Brillante Mendoza, bulong ka sa artista na samapalin mo para magulat or maganda reaction. I was slapped many times. So I thought… ahhh… so it’s ok pala to surprise my co-actors sa set. So low po of you to discredit my name.”
Perhaps Baron had a point, but come on: Director Arlyn Dela Cruz didn’t ask because who in his right mind would ever think to take a piss on a fellow human being?!
It’s just way below…it’s even way below Baron.
