QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Not Subject To Fact-checking by Rappler – ABS-CBN has just announced that it was renaming its new prime-time TV series, “The Junketeers.”
The new show features Vice President Leni Robredo and other politicians and former government officials on their exciting journey through cities in Europe.
The first episode of the series documents the group’s visit to the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, Germany. The group was, however, criticized for photos taken showing that they were all smiles, despite the Memorial’s supposedly somber mood.
Robredo later apologized for the insensitivity of the photo shoot. And so did Ifugao Congressman Ted Baguilat Jr. who first posted the Holocaust Memorial photo on his social media account.
Soon thereafter, ABS-CBN decided to rename the series, “The Apologists”
