Rouge magazine had made their name in the magazine world, but a negative publicity. Their cover model (Joey Mead) is wearing a Philippine flag body paint. The editor, I forgot to take note of his name, said that he is aware that the flag should not be worn and he also said that the law never states that the flag should not be (body) painted. Palusot!
I agree that its an insult to our flag and it deserve to be pulled out from the market plus they should pay the penalty for doing it.
