MANILA -- The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has summoned network ABS-CBN in relation to the "nude painting challenge" on the hit reality show "Pinoy Big Brother: ALL IN."

The MTRCB said it was "alarmed over alleged gender-insensitivity" in the challenge.

Last week, emotions run high when four housemates were challenged to pose nude for a painting as part of their weekly task.

Bong Osorio, ABS-CBN spokesperson, said the company has received the invitation and will cooperate with the MTRCB.

"We have received the invitation from MTRCB. We will cooperate and attend the conference on June 11," Osorio said.
