Netizens Admires Joey de Leon’s Public Apology Over His Statement About Depression!


The netizens were admiring the Filipino TV host Joey de Leon’s public apology over his distasteful remarks on depression.

Previously, the “Eat Bulaga” host Joey de Leon dismissed as “just made up” an elderly woman suffering from depression. The statement of the comedian garnered negative reactions from the social media users.

The actress and TV host Maine Mendoza even corrected Joey de Leon on his colorful remarks about depression, but he stood on his grounds instead of correcting himself and admitting his mistake.


The mental health organization “Youth for Mental Health Coalition (Y4MH)” said that the comedian could make up by consulting health advocates to learn more about the mental condition because apology alone is not enough.

On Friday (October 06, 2017), the 70-year-old comedian made a public apology and also to his co-host Maine Mendoza over his remarks about depression, which took thousands of lives every year.

De Leon’s apology garnered positive feedbacks from the netizens and some famous personalities.
