Muntinlupa mayor wants vlogger declared persona non grata for ‘picking up’ woman

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon has called the City Council to declare a foreign vlogger and YouTuber persona non grata (unwelcome) after one of his videos showed him picking up a girl in Alabang, taking her to a motel, giving her P1,000 as “help” and kissing her.
During the flag raising ceremony on Jan. 9, Biazon also called on the police to step up efforts against human trafficking, particularly prostitution, that is happening in Muntinlupa.
Biazon said the YouTuber, who appears to be a German national, should be declared unwelcome in Muntinlupa for the video he took and posted on his YouTube channel and Facebook account.
The mayor said he was tagged in a Facebook post on Jan. 8 about the YouTuber’s video.
“Sa una, akala ko papakita pa niyang nagmamagandang loob siya na tinutulungan yung 18-year-old single mother na mabigyan ng kaunting panggastos. Akala ko ang ending ay kunwari dinala niya ito sa kwarto tapos bibigyan nya ng pera tapos hahayaan na niya. Pauuwiin na niya, binigyan ng aral. Obviously hindi iyon ang nangyari. Meron pang scene na pinost sa kanyang vlog na nagtalukbong sila dun sa kumot (Initially, I thought he was doing a good deed by helping the 18-year-old single mother and giving her money to spend. I thought the ending would be him bringing the woman to the [motel] room and then he would give her money and let her go. He would send her home after lecturing her. Obviously, this did not happen. There is a scene that he posted on his vlog where they were hiding under the sheets),” said Biazon.
The mayor said, “Ang parang lumalabas sa akin, parang napopromote na dito sa Muntinlupa, with P1,000 may makukuha ka (For me, it seems that it is being promoted that in Muntinlupa, with P1,000 you can get [a woman]). That is something we should not tolerate.”
