Who scammed Korina Sanchez, Rated K?

Dec. 04, 18 | 8:32 am

Veteran ABS-CBN broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez and her weekly lifestyle show “Rated K” were also victimized by Thai internet sensation Mader Sitang.

It can be recalled that Mader Sitang was featured on Sanchez show when she visited the Philippines last month.

In her interview on Rated K, Sitang shared stories about her life in the past, her transition, and her career as a human rights lawyer.

However, after her visit to the Philippines, Mader Sitang had an unfortunate encounter with her former producer and manager, Wilbert Tolentino.

Tolentino filed a petition to declare Mader Sitang persona non grata in the Philippines after he together with a Philippine entourage, went to Thailand to meet with Thai social media star who was supposed to sign a five-year managerial contract.

However, Mader Sitang left them at the airport when she found out that Tolentino did not have the money she asked for which was worth 19.5 million baht or around P31.3 million.

Tolentino then went to the Philippine Embassy in Thailand to seek legal help. He claimed that he learned in the embassy that Mader Sitang is not really a lawyer and did not donate anything to Yolanda victims, contrary to what many netizens know about her and to what she said in her Rated K interview.

Tolentino’s complaint led to Mader Sitang getting blacklisted in the Philippines after she was considered as an “undesirable alien” in the Philippines.

As of press time, Sanchez has not yet released a statement regarding the issue.

Mader Sitang became popular on social media for her videos which shows her dancing while throwing her head back and forth repeatedly with shirtless men in the background. One of her most viewed videos has gained over 16 million views as of this writing. Many netizens have created parodies of her videos.
