Good day!

I'd like to request for any related issuances by the MTRCB providing an explanation on why 2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten, a movie which was commercially released on the 15th of March, 2017, have been classified with an R-18 rating.

I'd also like to note that I'm talking about the explanation provided by the MTRCB, and NOT the permit (which excludes any explanation) that is issued that stated that the said movie is classified as R-18, which is already available at the MTRCB website as of the day of the issue of this request.

I'm looking forward for my request be granted. Thanks!
