Please Boycot Boyet Fajardo RTW Labels Whoever He Is

Boyet Fajardo who? Honestly I don’t even know who is this Boyet Fajardo and I don’t really know what his works looks like because I am not pretending to be someone from the circle of fashion elites. Which should be a wake-up call for him and from anyone else from the elite circle. Just because you are from the elite group you think you are Gods! Well newsflash! You are not! Because not everyone knows you by name, label or even your face, so don’t assume that your face or name can be your ID!

“Eto lang masasabi ko, hoy bakla wag kang masyadong mayabang. Bakla! Style mo bulok!”

Here is what happened:

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.

    Waw … honestly, I don’t know who he is. What he did was definitely below the belt. I pity the staff who had to kneel down. 🙁 He doesn’t deserve that.
