The women's rights group Gabriela earlier condemned the act in the fashion show where actor Coco Martin walked the runway holding a female model on a leash.

On Facebook, Gabriela's Liza Maza described the act as "degrading and dehumanizing portrayal of women" which Bench should apologize for.

Meanwhile, Bench also mentioned in its statement that they "shall continue to uphold the dignity of women and our commitment will remain so."
