In a lengthy Facebook post, reporter John Paul Seniel accused Bigornia of threatening their DMNG engineer Al Lim Ramz during their live interview with Christopher “Bong” Go, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s executive assistant.

"Our DMNG Engineer Al Lim Ramz politely told you to excuse yourself from our camera since you became an eye sore to my live report," Seniel said.

"Mr. Bong Go and I were on cam, but you (Bigornia) immediately scolded him (Ramz) and even told him "sapakin kita," he added.

The Kapuso reporter expressed his dismay on how Bigornia has shown her foul treatment to the staff.

"Pero nakakabahala ang inasta niyo. Regional Media kami, oo, pero kahit ihilera ka sa amin dito sa region, namumukod tangi kami sa rehiyon namin dahil rehiyon namin ito. Kahit sa rehiyon namin, hindi kami pa star, we work with humility and authority," he continued.

His sentiment on social media already gone viral on Facebook amassing 13,000 shares and more than 5,000 shares as of press time. Some netizens even lauded Seniel of bringing up about the rude attitude of Bigornia.

"My salute to you John Paul Sarsuelo Seniel for courageously revealing the disgusting act of that lady TV reporter Doris. Indeed, what she did to you showed her true character - mayabang, feeling sikat at no breeding," Facebook user Jimmy Sta Cruz commented.

"Give respect to us davaoenos, dont you ever do that to our regional media. May displina ang Davao media.. and please behave.. Ur in Duterte's city.. OUR DAVAO CITY," Jude Arguillas expressed.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN said that they are now investigating about the claim and already contacted Bigornia to explain about the incident.

"Bigornia has given her side of the story and we are now evaluating the claims and counter-claims of the two reporters," the statement read.

The Kapamilya network also assured the public of their "commitment to uphold the provisions of our Ethics and Standards Manual."
