Vice Ganda Finally Spoke Up After Making The Controversial “GMA Is Where You Belong” Joke!

Popular noontime variety show “It’s Showtime” viewers were shocked when Vice Ganda excalim out that most of GMA Network’s talents are switching to ABS-CBN. It was meant as a joke but everyone found it a bit too close to the truth. What happened?

Vice was hosting the segment “Ms. Q&A” in the “Wit Lang” part of the show. The certain episode was aired on Monday, last August 7, 2017. The comedian jokingly call out this particular question to one of the contestants:

"Kung sinasabing ang GMA ay ‘where you belong,’ ba’t sila naglilipatan?”
The audience laughed for a bit but Vice Ganda instantly saved himself and said, “charot lang” as a follow-up. He also issued an apology to his fellow judges at that time, Karylle and Bella Padilla. Both were originally from GMA Network as well. Vice’s statement was considered controversial because as of late, Aljur Abrenica and Richard Gutierrez – who are two of Kapuso’s main talents – switched to ABS-CBN.

Perhaps that was the issue that the comedian may have been pertaining to. The issue got so blown up that Channel 7 comedian Michael V. also shared his statements on the matter after people have repeatedly requested Kapuso talents about their opinions.

However, Michael V. laughed off the issue. He said:

“Pero Vice Ganda is Vice Ganda rin naman. Na nakilala natin siya sa ganung style, hindi natin maiiwasang… Hindi natin siya mapipigilan kung gusto niyang magsalita ng ganun, kasi may karapatan din naman siya to express, kung papa’no yung style niya ng pagpapatawa.”

Now, in the latest report released by Philippine Entertainment Portal, Vice Ganda finally spoke up himself and said that Filipinos obviously want those types of “shady comments.”

He added:

“Naku, gustung-gusto naman ng mga tao ‘yan! Yang mga shady comments, gustung-gusto nila ‘yan.”

He didn’t more explain his statement but according to the report, GMA Network executive Lilybeth Rasonable said that it was just Vice Ganda’s way of making a joke.
