Comedian Atakstar Araña recalled getting set up and his legal battle against the perpetrator during the media conference for #DoYouThinkIamSexy on September 7, 2022.

Araña gave an update regarding the criminal case filed against him in 2017, citing how he fought the legal complaint in court.

“Tapos ito naman sa harrassment, na-ano na ako noon, na-trap or masabi nating, na-set up ako ng mga panahon na ‘yun na five years ago. Pero, nilaban ko talaga ng kaso until ngayon, ang decision na lang, court order na. So nasa 99% na po talaga na panalo. Tsaka ‘yung tao hindi na nagpapakita, pero kausap siya ng abogado ko, so may mga pinagusapan na.”

He then confirmed his realization about standing up against abusers.

“Dapat talaga ipaglaban mo lalo na kung inabuso ka. Kasi sa mga panahon ngayon, hindi naman po ako sikat– may tawag doon eh, mga nagte-take advantage, may pagsuhista, akala may pera ka kasi nasa sugalan ka. Pero, ang laking lesson rin sa akin noon na hindi na ako babalik doon.”

He also recounted his experience when he was in college.

“Noong college kami, mag-eexam kami tapos ‘yung kaklase ko walang pambayad, kulang ang pambayad, medyo may sobra ako so tinulungan ko siya. Pero, lalaki to ha–pero, hindi pa kasi ako masyadong mahasa noong mga panahon na ‘yun. Kaya siya ‘yung nag-offer ng sarili niya.”

As for social media, Araña detailed how he balances his social media usage and the value of his platforms for his career as a comedian.

“Napakahalaga ng social media talaga, pero ako naranasan ko na–kapag may anxiety attack ako, ang ginagawa ko talaga, parang pag natulog ako, totoo ito, ino-off ko talaga ‘yung data. Para wala akong marinig na notification, para masarap ‘yung tulog ko after ko mag-pray. 

“Parang kaya ko for one night pero hindi ko alam kung talagang one week or one month, kasi ngayon kailangan natin ‘yan eh, lalo na sa mga business natin, sa mga official shows, ‘yung mga kausap kong kumukuha sa akin, may official communication sa messenger, di ba sa iba’t mga platforms. So parang sa akin, napakaimportante, parang hindi ko ata kaya ‘yung one week.”

The cast includes Milana Ikimoto, Hershie De Leon, Ava Mendez, Dolly De Leon, Jojit Lorenzo, Atakstar Araña, Raul Morit, and Cecil Frio Paz.

Under the direction of Dennis Marasigan, #DoYouThinkIamSexy starts streaming on September 9, 2022 via Vivamax.
