Boyet Fajardo: Creative Outburst

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 ·

Pagkatapos ng pamosong "Social Users" lamang daw ang mga Alabang Boys, at hindi mga totoong Drug Addicts, heto naman ang magandang palusot para sa mga Artists na biglaang nagagalit:

"Creative Outburst"

Creative Outburst. That was how Ricky Rivera, spokesman of Boyet Fajardo, describes Fajardo's abusive behavior over two staffs at Duty Free Philippines on March 13, 2009.

(Teka, eh sino nga ba si Boyet Fajardo?)

According to ABS-CBN report,

Fajardo got mad at two Duty Free employees after a cashier asked Fajardo to present an I.D. in support of the unsigned credit card he used. He reportedly said: “"Mga leche kayo! Hindi niyo ako kilala? Ako si Boyet Fajardo! At itong p...ina na babaeng ito (pointing to a lady supervisor) at ang baklang ito (pointing to the cashier) ay walang kwentang mga tao! I want them fired!!!”

Fajardo's outburst was caught on Duty Free's surveillance camera and uploaded on YouTube. It prompted negative reactions from bloggers, and an online boycott campaign of Fajardo's RTW clothes was initiated.

Rivera explains:

“Figure of speech ang kanyang ginawa eh. Bilang fashion designer, artist nga, ay minsan ay nagkakaroon ng mga creative outburst dahil na rin siguro sa pagod na nafi-feel niya ng mga panahon na iyon”

Isipin mo, may ganoon palang klase nang paglalabas ng emosyon. "Creative Outburst".

Pertaining to the boycott initiated in the Internet, Rivera said the online petitioners should consider Fajardo’s rising international status before pursuing the boycott.

“It’s sad because this happened when there are foreigners interested in bringing a Filipino brand abroad, in Switzerland, and United Arab Emirates, because his [Fajardo’s] creations are unique.”


Mr. Rivera, are you then passing the blame to the petitioners? Parang may mali naman yata dito. Kung maaapektuhan man ang popularity ni Boyet Fajardo (Boyet Who?), that's because siya rin ang may mali in the first place. We don't do scapegoats like this just because we want to preserve our kababayan's popularity.

We must be proud that Boyet Fajardo has been making names in the international fashion scene, however, this unpopular treatment he made in his own kababayans should serve as a lesson to him.

Your expertise in your craft will put you to your pedestal.
But it's your ATTITUDE that will keep you there.
