Deputy Presidential Spokeswoman Abigail Valte said the Palace would leave to Bureau of Customs (BoC) Chief Ruffy Biazon to handle the controversy arising from the claim of Hollywood actor Taylor Kitsch who mistakenly blamed the country for his delayed entry into Indonesia.
Valte said Kitsch allegedly had a heated argument with Philippine airport officials but authorities have no records that he visited the country supposedly to shoot a film by Oliver Stone.
Valte added that Kitsch should correct the reference to the country. as it was evident that Taylor Kitsch was not here and his unfortunate experience did not happen in the Philippines.
In an interview with American TV host Dave Letterman last week, Kitsch claimed that a Philippine Customs officer nearly denied him entry due to lack of blank pages on his passport.
The officer also reportedly asked him for an iPhone in exchange for entry to the Philippines or just return to Japan where he came from.
After a long argument, the actor was allowed to enter the country
