Maria Sofia videoed herself playing the Lupang Hiniran using her mobile phone. She then stood and put her palm on her crotch area instead of putting it on her chest. She also danced lewdly.
Erwin Tulfo, for the show News 5, talked to Teddy Atienza, the Chief of Heraldy Section on the National Historic Commission of the Philippines to inquire about the issue.
Atienza said the agency is already aware and the officials are not getting in touch with the consulate of Los Angeles, California to where she was located. They may also request for cancellation of her passport. It is also in the power of the government to put her on the black list, whether she is a Filipino or not.
