Boyet Fajardo is a douchebag

This morning saw designer Boyet Fajardo–of the Boyet Fajardo Church of Boyet Fajardo–being defended on TV by his spokesman Ricky Ricardo (or whatever) for the tongue lashing he subjected employees of the Duty Free Philippine Fiesta Mall to for asking him for an ID to validate his credit card purchases.

He said that Fajardo’s alleged “creative outburst” might have been misinterpreted by the Duty Free staff. Perhaps when Fajardo said,” Mga leche kayo! Hindi niyo ako kilala? Ako si Boyet Fajardo!,” he was only greeting them good morning in his own fabulously gay and creative way.

And, really, Fajardo does deserve our sympathy, Ricky Ricardo (probably not his real name) argued. Fajardo is a top-notch designer who, while prone to going into creative outbursts and reducing store attendants to kneeling and crying in shame, nevertheless is bringing Filipino pride into the fashion world. Cussing out and threatening to have people fired for not knowing who he is is just part of the creative process, I guess.

Confronted with video taken from the Duty Free security camera, Fajardo’s spokesman nevertheless said that one cannot judge the fashion designer without knowing the whole story behind the confrontation.

Perhaps Fajardo was simply pointing out that the salesman’s mascara did not compliment his Asian features, and the weight of the realization and an overwhelming sense of gratitude brought the guy to his knees. Or maybe he was setting Fajardo up for a low blow.

It happens.

It happens.

Or something similarly inane that Ricky Ricardo wants us to believe to excuse his friend acting like a douchebag because he is a creative genius. An artiste, much like little children, must be suffered, I guess.

But really, it’s not just Boyet Fajardo enraged that a lowly cashier doesn’t know who he is, but every Filipino who thinks that the world owes him a favor because he thinks he’s somebody.  Or worse, somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who thinks he’s somebody. Every Filipino who ever threw a hissy fit (or fist) for an imagined slight to his ego. But mostly it’s Boyet Fajardo, I guess, if you don’t want to be creative about things.

No worries for Boyet Fajardo, though. Thanks to that  “creative outburst” we all know he is now. He’s Boyet Fajardo, and he’s a douchefag.

  1. His spokesperson described what happened at Duty Free is just Boyet Fajardo’s Creative Outburst and he didn’t really mean what he said and he’s apologizing.

    “Creative Outburst?” – this excuse only proves Boyet Fajardo’s contempt to other people especially those whose social class are lower than him which he thinks are dumb and idiots.

    I don’t think he’s really sorry and apologetic for what has transpired, he’s just afraid that he’ll be going out-of-business.

    His line of brands are Onesimus, Initials, Chancellor 9000, Boyet Fajardo, Boyet Fajardo for Men and I think there are much more that I haven’t known yet.

  2. Are you the Cashier who was the cashier on duty that day? Or is that your given name? Either way, welcome to indolent indio, such as it is.

    “His line of brands are Onesimus, Initials, Chancellor 9000, Boyet Fajardo, Boyet Fajardo for Men and I think there are much more that I haven’t known yet.”

    Huh. I’m never shopping there again.

  3. dont regard us employees of duty free philippines as idiots who cant recognized ill treatments froma mere greetings. there are witnesses and other customers who could attest to that.

    May this be a lesson for him not to feel high and mighty for just a cup of gold in his hands.

    i have nothing against this man, but if he behave this way, then i must do

  4. Hahahahahaha…..Cheers to Indolent Indio.

    Does Bayot Fajardo know the difference between his atelier and a public place like Duty Free for his creative outbursts?

    Are you God Bayot for making the poor guy kneel infront of you? Do you know that Duty Free has issued privilege pass for privileged mortals like us who can enter Duty Free even we don’t go abroad? That is why we are called the VIPs. Iam sure that you are not one of us that’s why you have to spell out your name to the cashier. Poor you…..

  5. creative outburst? wow, that is a new way of saving your public face. Ok fine, let’s get the whole story from you Boyet before we judge… ha!

    All I can say is, have a little shame sweetie. It might do you good.

  6. “His line of brands are Onesimus, Initials, Chancellor 9000, Boyet Fajardo, Boyet Fajardo for Men and I think there are much more that I haven’t known yet.”

    Get your facts straight Cashier. Onesimus and Chancellor 9000 have nothing to do with Boyet Fajardo. Boyet Fajardo’s creations are Boyet Fajardo Initials, Substance and Boyet Fajardo for Men.

    Boyet Fajardo gets the cheapest materials from China and uses cheap labor from factories in Cambodia.

    No Filipino factory worker will lose his job if we boycott Boyet Fajardo’s products.

    Again, FYI, Onesimus and Chancellor 9000 have nothing to do with Boyet Fajardo.

  7. “Boyet Fajardo gets the cheapest materials from China and uses cheap labor from factories in Cambodia.

    No Filipino factory worker will lose his job if we boycott Boyet Fajardo’s products.”

    Huh. Then there’s hardly anything Filipino about him. Except, I guess, his aversion to making a real apology.

  8. Good blogging Indolent Indio. I’ve been trolling the net for stories related to this ‘scandal’ and have yet to get my fill. Yours is one of the few that did not give me a furrowed brow. So, thanks.

    Great save regarding the brands associated to this ‘douchebag’ Fajardo (personally, I refer to him as a turd). We ought to get our facts straight specially when we’re asking people to boycott anything related to him.

  9. hi! this is late but i want to just clarify that Chancellor9000 has NOTHING to do with Boyet Fajardo. I am the son of the owner and trust me, i don\’t even know how Boyet Fajardo looks like.
