"Pinoy Big Brother Otso" housemate Banjo Dangalan has been force evicted after making a rape joke.
On the June 4 episode of "PBB", Banjo can be seen joking about his fellow housemate Akie Poblete over breakfast on how he wouldn't let him give him a hug at night.
"Nakakabitin sa gabi. 'Di niya ako pinapayakap sa kanya (Akie)," he said.
He added, "Takot ka ba sa'kin? Sa gabi lang, boy. Kuntento na 'ko."
After joking about Akie, he then turned his attention to Gino Roque, where he even asked their fellow housemate Sky to switch beds with him so he can "rape" him.
"Siguro ang sarap nitong katabi sa pagtulog. Sky tabi nga muna kayo [ni Akie], pagsasamantalahan ko lang muna 'to," he jested.
Although he said it in a seemingly jokingly manner, the female housemates already felt uncomfortable with him. The girls then talked to him about his inappropriate jokes, and he was later called to the confession room.
Big Brother reminded him that he has already been warned about his behavior of sniffing the girls' hair that made them uncomfortable.
But his rape joke isn't something that he can tolerate.
"Ang pananamantala sa kapwa sa kahit anong konteksto ay hindi dapat ginagawang biro," said Big Brother.
"At kailanman ay hindi ko maaring palagpasin ang mga ganitong klaseng biro sa loob ng aking bahay."
Big Brother then announced his decision to force evict him from the house, and Banjo couldn't help but break down in tears. He personally apologized to his fellow housemates about his behavior afterwards, hoping that this could be a lesson for all of them.
Banjo is a 27-year-old martial arts trainer who entered the "PBB" house aspiring to bring joy and laughter despite everything he's been through with his life.
