Not interested: Xavier School returns free ‘Maid in Malacañang’ tickets sent by Fil-Chi biz group

Xavier School has reportedly returned the free tickets to the controversial “Maid in Malacañang” movie sent by the Federation Of Filipino Chinese Chambers Of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII).

Social media posts showed the business group sent 300 free tickets to school administrators, a move confirmed by Filipino-Chinese civic leader Teresita Ang-See.

“Some business groups have been tapped by Senator Imee Marcos to buy millions of pesos worth of tickets to the film, Maid in Malacaňang, to be distributed to schools,” Ang-See said in a statement over the weekend.

“I thought I was already beyond shocked, but promoting a film that has been judged as a distortion of history by distributing free passes to students is truly appalling,” she added.

Ang-See said sending movie tickets to the schools was “tantamount to asking these educational institutions to promote outright lies, falsehoods, and historical distortion.”

“The promotion of this movie MADE in Malacañang in the nation’s schools is an insult to our schools and students. It displays total disregard for integrity, and disrespect for the truth and historical facts,” she said.

Produced by Viva Films, “Maid in Malacañang” stars Cesar Montano as the late President Ferdinand Marcos, Ruffa Gutierrez as the former First Lady Imelda Marcos, Diego Loyzaga as the young Ferdinand Marcos Jr., Cristine Reyes as the young Imee Marcos and Ella Cruz as the young Irene Marcos.
