MANILA - The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has expressed concern over "child-unfriendly" scenes in "Eat Bulaga" and "The Ryzza Mae Show," which both include child actress Ryzza Mae Dizon.

MTRCB has called for a mandatory conference with representatives of the two shows, as well as Dizon's mother, on Thursday (September 5).

It said some scenes from the two programs "palpably violate the dignity of" Dizon.

MTRCB was referring to a scene in the July 29 episode of "Eat Bulaga" where a host spat juice into the face of Dizon; and the August 14 episode of "The Ryzza Mae Show" where a guest told Dizon "landing bata ka."

"The MTRCB hopes in the cooperation of those concerned in finding out what caused these scenes, who are responsible therefor, and what immediate and concrete measures can be done so they do not happen again. In this connection, the MTRCB reiterates its serious and urgent concern for the welfare of children, who are most vulnerable in media and entertainment," MTRCB said.
