The Goofy Scandal

Goofy and Gladys - Goofy pushed a fan named Gladys
Philippines

Ok here’s what happened: I’ve just heard it on a morning talkshow that Goofy pushed his fan, which is an actress here in the Philippines. According to the two actresses, which are Gladys Reyes and K Brosas they were in a trip on Hongkong to promote the Kapuso foundation, it is a foundation of their home TV station GMA channel 7. They were staying at the Disney Hotel and saw Goofy, the mascot on the hallway. Gladys wanted to take a picture but then the tourist guide doesn’t allow them because he said that Goofy is tired. Being a big fan of Goofy, Gladys looked for another way and take some actions. Gladys fall in line and being just a small lady, she makes her way to the side of Goofy. When it’s just a second away the camera be clicked Goofy pushed Gladys away. So shocked of what happened they reported it to the administration but all they say was Goofy is tired. The two actresses won’t accept the reason and they said that Goofy shouldn’t behave like that in front of the public. K Brosas even joked that “ Goofy is just a cartoon character and you’ll never seen him get tired on their cartoon series even if he gets hurt or whatever!” and Gladys even joked too and she told Goofy that “ Hey! You are just a cartoon character and I am an actress so you don’t have the right to push and hurt me!” I was really laughing when I heard them saying those although it’s a little bit of their fault but then Goofy the mascot shouldn’t have to behave like that especially to his fans. If you belong on the entertainment industry you don’t have the right to get tired. You have to entertain your fans even if you are dead tired to please them. Fans makes their sales boost and they are the reason why Disney as a whole is still existing on our society.

If that really happened to our own Gladys and K, it's a shame on the part of the Disney management. These mascots, or cartoon characters or whatever, have a duty to the public and that's not to harm or grouch around because they're tired, but to entertain. What Goofy did back there wasn't funny at all.

I agree with you there ladygam! My goodness it's not going to take you hours to take a picture with your fans. The person should be reprimanded once the complaint has been filed. I can just imagine what that guy would do to the children who wanted to have a picture with goofy and they would just be shoved away.

it seems that people here have different reactions some go against goofy and some with the actess. as for me.. i understand gladys for pushing through in taking pictures cause it would be once or trice in a lifetime chance but i think as glady's an actress and also an entertainer should have understand that entertainers and actors are human too.. they have the right to get tired but of course not this way of hurting other people.

The deal was Tigger was just someone looking for a lawsuit. This was a big kid that kept pulling on this costume or something and Tigger just play socked him. The kid is the one that should have been reprimanded.

Never heard of Tigger's issue but just now. If that's what the boy do then it's his fault.

Unfortunatly unless this was caught on video tape I wouldn't believe it. Not in either parties defense, but this is how rumors get started. And the media in any sense always makes something on famous people a little extrememd don't you think.

I won't force you to believe it either, lol. The two actress are already famous here in our country and they don't need to lie on such things just to make them famous again. Actually, I haven't heard it on the news that it has happened and they only told the viewers when the talkshow host asked them. After the show, it's like nothing happened. It's like they are still happy even they get hurt by a mascott! No follow up news after that.

wahaha this is funny^__^ well of course funny for how our actresses reacted... but of course Goffy doesnt have the right to do that, he could have silently whispered to his manager (if ever there was) if he could take a break or have somebody to replace him during that time to avoid untoward circumstances....because what happen then leaves the whole management a negative impression.... hope this wont happen again^_^

Sounds to me that the actress is a spolied brat. Goofy should have just taken the picture and be done with it. The actress should have let it go when she found out Goofy didn't want to take a picture. She pushed the issue though and got pushed back, waa waa waa for her. Then they made a big deal about how they didn't get their way, another waa waa waa. I wonder what they would do if they ever got tired. Would they snub their fans or would they stay there 24 hours a day and get their pictures taken?

Spoiled brat, lol! The actress character here in the Philippines is kinda like that, lol. She's good to be a villain in some of her shows but she's very friendly and kind (I think most of all actors/actress that can portray a villain role). It has not been in the news though but they just had a story telling in a talk show so that's my source of information.

Oh my! Looks like this should be clumped together with that news about Tigger hurting a fan in Disneyland or something like that. Hmmm...seems like Disney characters are getting overworked. Hehehe. But, since they are mascots in Disney, and are supposed to be part of "show-business", they should know better than to hurt their fans. Looks like anger-management classes are in order for these cartoon characters. Hehehe.

Yeah, I think they do class that subject, lol!

have you heard the same story with Tigger the mascot in Disneyland, Florida? he was on caught on video hitting a kid who wanted to take a picture with him. so he was reprimanded. and that was just right, because people pay a lot to enter these theme parks to get a glimpse of them, not a hit from them. poor Tigger, he was caught on the act.

Is this true? haha. anyway, the admin should have scolded Goofy for doing such action against Gladys or other people. Gladys is their clients and customers are always right.

hi certified alice You forget Goofey is being played by an actor' and actors are human beings. after working all day a human being does get tired. Yes they do have the right to get tiredk but he shouldnt have pushed her, true. but your statement is pretty unfeeling as just because one is in the entertainment business doesnt mean that his or her fans own his whole life. We all have a right to have our work put into just so many hours. after we have worked that number of hours, we owe nothing to anyone, even the actors and a ctresses.

Uy! sasabunutan ko the disney character if I was the one in the shoes of Gladys Reyes! and for sure Gladys has more money than this character! They should treat people equally whether you are a black or brown.
