Bautista's immediate apology during the very ocassion where he joked about Davao's women, and his second for that matter, did not do any charm to prevent the city council from issuing a resolution.

The festival had its last two days of celebration on August 16 and 17, wherein Bautista was hired by the event's organizers as an endorser of AyosDito.com.

Part of the resolution reads, 'Mr. Bautista willfully and arrogantly intended to propagate a culture of sexism and male chauvinism that promotes rude and disrespectful behavior against women'.

The above line was referring to a side but still related issue wherein Bautista posted on his Instagram a photo him with his arms 'draped' over three young women attending the festival, captioned 'Ito ang kabataan ngayon hihi', with the hashtags #Kadayawan #PasisikatinKitaHijaFoundation.
