Shame on you, Boyet Fajardo

This was forwarded to me through email. I saw the disturbing video during last night’s news broadcast.

************************

Last March 13, 2009, Filipino Fashion Designer Angelino Boyet Fajardo created a scene, to the shock and horror of shoppers and employees of Duty Free Philippines alike, when a cashier politely asked for his ID after presenting his unsigned credit card. This is a standard operating procedure applicable to all stores to verify ownership of the credit card and prevent fraud.

Suddenly, the designer reportedly got furious and, at the top of his voice, started berating the cashiers and managers of Duty Free Philippines. He might have thought a celebrated person like he is, with all his accolades and fame, has gone unrecognized by the cashier. A new well-trained casual worker who is carefully doing his job. The designer further shocked bystanders by cursing the people there with words such as leche and p…ina, while angrily expressing surprise why the people there did not recognize him.

Store managers and officers were sought to appease the matter, explaining to him that it is all included as a standard operating procedure in credit card payment for the safety, not only for the company but also his own. Ignoring all this, he pulled out his phone and threatened to call on high positioned government officials whom he allegedly knew, like doing a power-play to make these people realize how important he is. He went on saying “Mga leche kayo! Hindi niyo ako kilala? Ako si Boyet Fajardo! At itong p…ina na babaeng ito (pointing to a lady officer) at ang baklang ito (pointing to the cashier) ay walang kwentang mga tao! I want them fired!!!”

His yelling and berating went on and on. He cannot calm down and as he appeared to have bloodshot eyes, like that of a drunk person and or under an influence. He threw his passport on the cashier’s face and later intentionally stepped on the cashier’s foot to say “Ay sorry, di ko sinasadya!” He goes on to say, that only if the cashier kneel down before him and/or allow him to freely slap the cashier’s face, may he get satisfied.

The ill-fated cashier, with all the onlookers watching, stand down and just simply gave in to probably he thought would end the matter. Crying in shame he slowly knelt down and apologize (for actually doing his job) before this self proclaimed GOD, perhaps for fear of loosing his job. No slapping was made to the cashier’s face but the incident landed a harsher and reverberating sound to the faces of the lesser people of this society.

Fortunately, his inhumane acts were caught on CCTV in which a portion was featured in YouTube.

With such disrespect, discrimination and humiliation towards a good worker, a less fortunate person and a fellow Filipino…

1. We are calling all citizens to stop patronizing Boyet Fajardo’s RTW labels such as Substance in SM department stores, Boyet Fajardo and Initials in Landmark and Robinson’s department stores.
2. We are calling on all malls to pull out or stop distributing his products in your outlets.
4. We are calling on the Commission on Human Rights, Department of Labor and Employment and all human rights and labor activists to take appropriate legal actions on this matter.
5. We are calling all foreign embassies to deny him of entry to your respective countries.
6. We are calling on the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines to dishonor him of his membership and profession.

…To give him a lesson and to help us stop him from victimizing the underprivileged over and over and over again.

  1. He’s a worthless person. With what he did just made him less-er of a person. He doesn’t deserve any respect from anyone of us. Really, shame on him!

    I support the campaign of not patronizing his products. What the heck, I don’t even know him

  2. Boyet Fajardo? Who the f—- is he? I don’t even recognize his name…
    He probabaly thought that his outrageous outburst will humiliate the store employees.He is gravely mistaken. Thanks to the advances in electronics, I am quite sure the whole Philippines saw how extremely rude this person is, exposing his primitive behavior right on tv.He hehehhe good for him. Honestly i didnt know that this kind of behavior still exist in this modern world…I guess there are still some out there who really didn’t learn anything about manners and patience.I sincerely hope the all of you who are aware of this woulld spread it sround the globe and boycott his product forever. For me this will be one of my lifetime goals…. spread and boycott all of his products.
    To Mr. Marvin Fernandez, I share your sentiments but you are the better person here. God loves the humble and despise the proud. Stand tall. Fight for what is right and you should sue Fajardo for all he’s got. You deserve it…. Do not give in to the temptation of accepting money or position from anyone….You need to sue him to the end and if he ask for forgiveness… go ahead and forgive.. it is good for your heart… but sue him anyway….sue him to his last centavo…

  3. Boyet? Boyet who? never heard, because his not famous. I saw the video and saw Budhha telling the poor man to kneel down upon him.

    To Marvin Fernandez, your a better person don’t forget that..God Bless you.

  4. we need to unite to teach this person a lesson he will never forget in his whole life.

    i support any move to teach this person a lesson….
