TV5 starlets RR Enriquez and Jeck Maierhofer are currently receiving a deluge of criticism from netizens after a video showing them bullying a passenger in another vehicle has gone viral.
Originally uploaded in the Facebook page of Top Gear Philippines, the one-minute video shows Enriquez and Maierhofer repeatedly honking their car horn to forcibly wake up a passenger sleeping in the FX taxi stuck in front of them because of an apparent traffic jam.
Based on the self-recorded video, Enriquez is the one on the driver’s seat with Maierhofer seated beside her. “Ladies and gentleman, ang gagawin po namin ay bubusina po kami para magising si Kuya,” she can be heard saying.
The two ladies then giggled uncontrollably after seeing the sleeping guy wake up. “Oh my gosh! Grabe, pina-follow ka pa e! Upload mo!” Maierhofer said, to which Enriquez said: “Kunwari buntis-buntisan!”
Watch the incident below:
“Nakikita niya kaya ako sa (screen)?” Enriquez asked, to which her companion said: “Hindi e. Hindi sya tumitingin sayo e. Antok siya.”
Enriquez is best known for being a former mainstay of Wowowee while Maierhofer is married to basketball player Rico Maierhofer of San Miguel Beermen.
They host Happy Wife, Happy Life together with Danica Sotto and LJ Moreno on TV5 during weekday mornings.
