NAGLABAS ng official statement ang GMA tungkol sa pag-viral ng ‘The Boyet Challenge’ na inalmahan ng Autism Society Philippines.

“GMA Network aims to spread awareness and appreciation for mentally, physically, and differently-abled people through its Afternoon Prime series, My Special Tatay.

“From the start, the advocacy of the show is to help viewers understand better the plight of people with intellectual disabilities. 

“As such, we are one with the Autism Society Philippines in calling on netizens to treat people with autism with dignity and respect.

The viral videos that have been circulating on social media tagged as “The Boyet Challenge” was not initiated by the program and we join the ASP’s appeal to stop sharing and creating videos ridiculing people with autism.

“We are immensely grateful for the support the show has been receiving and we hope that it continues to inspire and impart valuable lessons to our Kapuso viewers.”
