Chito Miranda and Neri Naig Sex Video Scandal

Saturday August 3rd 2013, I checked Twitter and saw my timeline filled with people talking about what might be the biggest celebrity scandal of the year. Unless you have been living under the rock, you surely have heard or seen the Chito Miranda, the lead singer of popular band “Parokya ni Edgar,” became talk of the town on Sunday after screengrabs of the sex video showing him and his girlfriend Neri Naig being intimate circulated online. The video spread like wildfire through Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, porn sites, forums, chat rooms, etc. Netizens expressed their disgust at the actions of these two accusing them of being immoral and perverts.

Miranda told his Twitter followers that his room was recently robbed and among those stolen was his hard disk drive, where the sex video files were stored.

According to reports, the sex video which lasts for more than 7 minutes features Chito Miranda and the former Star Circle Quest finalist (Naig) both naked on the bed and making love. It was uploaded on YouTube Saturday morning but was deleted after a few hours.

The Parokya ni Edgar leadman made a public apology on the official Facebook Page of Parokya ni Edgar:

“We are truly saddened by the fact na may nag-leak na private video of me and my girlfriend, Neri Naig. Humihingi po ako ng paumanhin sa mga pamilya namin for this unfortunate incident. Thank you for your prayers.”The Parokya ni Edgar frontman also took his sentiments to photo sharing site Instagram via his account “chitomirandajr”

My thoughts on this?

There is no sense of bashing Chito Miranda or the entire group of Parokya Ni Edgar just for that freaking sex video. Chito made a mistake, and this should not represent the entire Parokya Ni Edgar as a group as well as their musicality. Besides, they were not introduced into entertainment industry as matinee idols with oozing sex appeal and wholesome image at the same time. You cannot expect someone from a rockband doing all pa-tweetums effect to the fans. They are in this industry to make people happy with their songs, to showcase their awesome musical skills. Parokya Ni Edgar may not be the best band in Pinoy rock music history but they happened to be one of the most respected bands in town. Another thing, they are not your typical pogi-rock band who only showcase their super lovelorn, cheesy music, lacking substance, and all their showcase is kung gaano sila ka-pogi.
