THE National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) is eyeing to take legal actions against social media content creator "Tukomi" for a prank they did.

In a Facebook post, NCMF said it has been notified about the post, and the Bureau of Legal Affairs is determining possible legal actions against the content creator.

"The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos has been notified about this incident. We have forwarded the information to our Bureau of Legal Affairs for the next steps in addressing the issue, particularly in determining the cases that may be filed against these individuals," the commission said.

NCMF also appealed to the public to refrain from spreading the video, and to avoid further engagements with the content creators.

The video entitled "Manghagis ng Itim na Bag ng Naka pang Arabo" was posted on Sunday, May 1.

In the last part of the video, it shows a man wearing Muslim traditional attire carrying a black backpack and standing outside a barbershop in an unknown location. He suddenly throws the bag inside and runs away along with frightened people.

NCMF Commissioner Yusoph Mando commented on the post, thanking a fellow Muslim who notified him about the incident.

"Titiyakin namin na maaaksyunan ng ating tanggapan itong ganitong klaseng content ng socmed (We will make sure our office will take action against this kind of social media content)," Mando said.

Tukomi immediately took down its video after receiving backlash. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the creators apologized to the Muslim community.

"Humihingi kami ng paumanhin sa lahat ng mga na offend na mga kapatid nating Muslim (We apologize to our Muslim brothers and sisters who were offended by our video) .We will address the issue regarding sa kumakalat tungkol sa recent comment trolling prank episode natin (our viral comment trolling prank episode)," Tukomi said.

The creators also uploaded another YouTube video on Wednesday evening, May 4, reiterating their apology for their video.

Tukomi is a Filipino YouTube channel run by brothers Oliver, Lester, and Hiroshi Tukomi, who are from Davao City.

Their pranks had stirred some controversy over the past years.

Around early December 2018, one Tukomi brother swam in the fountain pond at GMall the Peak.

They also gatecrashed a fashion show organized by fashion students in 2018, and it was also criticized by some netizens and the organizers themselves.

The Davao City-based content creators known as the "Tukomi brothers" are well-known pranksters who get their content ideas from suggestions of their Facebook and YouTube followers.

Their YouTube channel now has 4.16 million subscribers while they have 4.3 million followers on their Facebook page.
