The controversial video showing his altercation with a film student at the University of the Philippines quickly spread like wildfire after Khalil Verzosa posted it on his Facebook account on Sunday, May 15.

According to Versoza, they invited Geisler to act for a school production for an editorial design campaign. Due to their busy schedule, the production team failed to give the script to Geisler ahead of time. Apparently, this enraged Geisler who cursed and threw a violent fit at him at the set.

As of this writing, the video has over 3 million views.

On Tuesday, May 17, Geisler gave his side of the story through a lengthy post on Facebook. The 33-year-old actor said that it was taken out of context and was released to exploit his already damaged reputation.

“Limang araw ko ng hiningi ang script dahil kung passionate talaga sila sa ginagawa nila dapat 2 days before nila ibinigay sakin, hindi yung pag dating ko sa set bibigyan nila ako ng Idiot Board,” Geisler wrote in his post.

( I spent five days asking for the script because if they’re really passionate, they should have given it to me two days before instead of giving me an idiot board when I arrived at the set.)

Geisler also denied speculations that the video was staged as part of a social experiment.

In his interview with News5’s MJ Marfori, Geisler said. “Pumitik lang po talaga ako. How I wish na social experiment po siya. It would be a dream kasi maganda sanang plano po iyon eh but dahil dito parang ako po iyong nasisira eh, ako po iyong iyong napasama nasasaktan po ako ng todo.”

(I just lost it. How I wish it was a social experiment. It would be dream because it’s a beautiful plan but because of this, it appears that I am being ruined, I’m the one put on a bad light and I’m really hurt.)

Here’s Geisler’s full post.
