The Man Behind "20 Reasons I Dislike..." Video Apologizes

Mainit-init pa sa ating mga mata at tainga ang video na kumalat sa internet na may pamagat na "20 Reasons I Dislike the Philippines", heto at may bagong update na naman tayo tungkol sa usaping ito. Cebu-based American Jimmy Sieczka is the man behind the video that went viral almost as soon it hit the YouTube platform, is willing to apologize about the video that also did not like by some netizens, the Philstar reported. Ito ay matapos gumawa ng aksyon ang isang councilor sa Cebu na nais ideklara ang kano bilang isang persona non grata.

Mga ilang linggo na ang nakakalipas nang i-upload ni Jimmy Sieczka ang video sa kanyang website na Channelfix na may title na "20 Reasons I Dislike ____ (the Philippines.)" Marami ang hindi natuwa sa nasabing video at marami rin ang sumangayon sa mga sinabi ng Kano. Sa video ay inisa-isa ni Jimmy ang 20 bagay na hindi niya gusto sa Pilipinas gaya ng mga pulubi, pagiging mahilig ng mga Pinoy sa mga pampaputi, maduduming mga palikuran, matinding trapik, polusyon, mga sekyu na wala naman daw ginagawa kundi and tumayo at tumawa at mga ilan pa. Pwede mo rin panoorin ang video dito.

City Councilor Sisinio Andales Said he is filing a resolution to declare Sieczka persona non grata. Persona non grata is a term indicating that a person is no longer welcome in a particular area, Philstar reported.

Marami naman ang hindi sumasang-ayon sa aksyon ng Councilor at may mga nagsasabi pang dinadagdagan lang ng isa pang dahilan ang nasabing video. Mas nararapat na daw na aksyunan at itama ang mga puna ng Kano sa video kaysa sa mismong si Sieczka ang aksyunan.

Read Sieczka's statement below which he sent to

The following is my official statement regarding the "20 Reasons" video that I hosted:

I, James Sieczka, have considered the Philippines as my second country and Cebu as my second home. The subject video that was aired was made in good faith and as a legitimate and reasonable exercise of my right, "freedom of expression." There was no intention to scrutinize the city nor the people that governs the same. It's an honest observation and opinion that I myself think needs to be worked on not just specifically in Cebu. These are little things that we see around us as normal people and from the eyes of an ordinary man like me. But from all that's happening and me just trying to exercise my freedom of speech, I am very open and amenable for an apology, on the manner and means that I exercise my right, if the need presents itself. As a sign of my compliance for the duly authorized authority and rule of law, I am not ashamed to apologize to people that I offended in the process with the hope that you would reconsider in declaring me "persona non grata."
