After entertainment reporter Gretchen Fullido recently filed sexual harassment and libel cases against ABS-CBN executives, Ces Drilon whom Fullido accused of libel allegedly tagged “TV Patrol” anchors Noli De Castro and Ted Failon over the case.
In a report by The Manila Times, Drilon during ABS-CBN’s internal investigation allegedly tagged De Castro and Failon’s name for making side comments on Fullido’s body, manner of dress, or behavior.
Drilon allegedly stated: “Gretchen’s accusations of sexual harassment against Chair (Favila) and Maricar (Asprec) also surprised me because many times, while I worked as anchor for TV Patrol, I witnessed [anchors]Ted Failon and Noli de Castro make side comments, in between breaks on TV Patrol, about Gretchen’s body, manner of dress, or behavior that, in my opinion, constituted sexual harassment or at least inappropriate behavior. But Gretchen Fullido only laughed off those comments. She never complained.”
