While those portrayed as house helpers of the Marcos family are Elizabeth Oropesa as Yaya Lucy, Beverly Salviejo as Yaya Biday, and Karla Estrada as Yaya Santa.
The controversial movie hit theaters on August 3. The movie is directed by controversial director, Darryl Yap.
Meanwhile, the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan or BAYAN wants to stop the release of the movie in Europe.
In their petition, BAYAN-Europe claimed that the movie is “part of the conspiracy to whitewash the role of the Marcos family in one of the darkest epochs in Philippine history.”
Here’s the petition filed by BAYAN-EU:
The European Union has yet to issue any statement regarding the petition of BAYAN.
On the other hand, VIVA and the people behind Maid in Malacañang are yet to react to the petition as well.
