TV Patrol on Thursday reported that the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) was “alarmed” after watching it.

DSWD program management bureau director Patricia Luna reportedly said that they are now studying the option of filing a case against the adults who were involved, caused the slapping match to happen.

Luna reportedly said that while the boys are not accountable being minors, the adults clearly violated provisions of Republic Act 7610, otherwise known as the Anti-Child Abuse Law.
