Last night, January 30, 2021, the digital premiere of “Anak ng Macho Dancer” on Ktx.ph, one of ABS-CBN’s streaming platforms.
Simultaneously with the streaming of Sean De Guzman’s launching movie, screenshots and film clips of the highlighted scenes in the “Anak ng Macho Dancer” spread on social media.
There are also netizens offering a link for the full copy of the film, which immediately became the victim of piracy.
Sean expressed frustration when he learned of the piracy made in his first film.
He appealed to the public:
“Nakaka-disappoint at wala naman tayong magagawa at kahit anong sabihin natin na hindi mamirata, e, hindi talaga natin sila mapipigilan.
“Pero sana huwag na natin gawin dahil pinaghirapan ng mga tao sa likod ng camera iyang pelikula na iyan.
“Maraming nawawalan ng kita at trabaho.”
In a phone interview with Cabinet Files this morning, January 31, he also pleaded with fans watching pirated movies, “Please, wag po natin hayaan yung mga namimirata.”
