MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Duterte Administration has been in the headlines recently for public statements supporting local ordinances that ban tambays (loiterers) in streets and public places. It has also been criticized for uplholding a ban on Filipino men who go half-naked outside of their residences.
Today, Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that the half-naked ban only applies to men who do not have a fit body or six-pack abs. “The beauty of Filipino men is part of our inherent natural resource,” Roque said.
So go ahead — if you have the body like Zac Efron, don’t be afraid to flaunt it. You are part of our tourist attractions.
