MANILA - Former sexy singer-dancer and newly-appointed board of censors member Margaux "Mocha" Uson said Thursday that she will not allow "soft porn" to be shown on primetime television shows.

Uson was appointed as Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) board member on January 3, palace officials said Thursday.

MTRCB regulates and classifies motion pictures, television programs, and publicity materials.

"Pagtutuunan po natin ng pansin na mawala na yung mga 'soft porn' sa mga teleserye," Uson said in an interview with Mario Dumaual.

(I will make sure that 'soft porn' won't be a part of drama series shown on television.)

"Kung hindi car sex scene, sa garden. 'Yung isa naman sa mga kwarto-kwarto...dapat magkaron na ng pagbabago sa telebisyon," the manager of sexy girl group Mocha Girls said.

(Some drama series show sex scenes in the car, in the garden, or in rooms... Change should also come to television.)

In a Facebook post, Uson slammed critics who questioned her appointment.

"Sa mga bumabatikos na kesyo magiging malaswa na daw ang MTRCB dahil sa pagiging open-minded ko eh hindi po kayo updated. Matagal na po yang mga video o picture na inuupload ng mga haters."

(To all the critics who said the MTRCB will become lewd because of my open mindedness, well, you're not updated. My sexy pictures and videos being uploaded by haters online are outdated.)

Uson said she had no plans of entering politics but accepted the appointment as she is an advocate of "volunteerism."

"Tinanggap ko po itong pagiging board ng MTRCB sa kondisyon na wala po akong tatanggaping sweldo... kung hindi naman, ibibigay ko po ang 100% na sahod ko sa Duterte's Kitchen (DK) at sa DSWD Centers/Projects," she said.

(I accepted the appointment to the MTRCB with the condition that I will not receive any salary... If that's not allowed, I'll give my full salary to Duterte's Kitchen and to DSWD centers or projects.)

Under Presidential Decree No. 1986, each MTRCB board member will be "entitled to transportation, representation, and other allowances" which shall not exceed P5,000.
