Comedian Vice Ganda has received criticism on social media after an exchange between him and his co-host Karrylle was not received well by some fans of the noontime show Its Showtime.
The incident happened during the Tuesday episode of the said noontime show, February 2, 2023, where the two exchanged jokes about an incident between them and Vhong Navarro.
Before singing, Karylle told vice: “May request si Vhongskie. Kasi last time, nagre-rehearse siya sa umaga. ‘Tapos, binigay mo sa iba ‘yung kanta niya.”
Vice then gave his response: “O, ano’ng problema natin Karylle?”
“Hindi, natatawa lang kami. Kasi, prinaktis daw niya [‘yung kanta]” Karryle responded.
The comedian then gave a short response to Karryle telling her: “O, edi sana, kinanta mo.”
Karylle then followed up on the statement of Vice, but the latter ended the exchange by saying: “Okay na ‘yan Karylle!”
The netizens expressed support for Karrylle, believing that the singer has been shamed by Vice during the said episode.
Some accused Vice of picking the people who would get exposure to the show.
“Gets na they can joke about Karylle being weird and all kasi friends sila. Even ung alien jokes. Pero respeto naman sana lalo na sobrang buti niya on and off cam.” a netizen said.
“Dagdag kayo ng dagdag ng host na super awkward naman pakinggan. Kahit di fan ni K naaawa na sa kanya dahil sa treatment nyo.“ another fan commented.
In his tweet Vice clarified that he already apologized to Karrylle and set the record straight that they’re okay.
“Story time! Magkakasama kami ni K at Tyang and Anne sa dressing room. Di daw sya naoffend when i asked her. But i still apologized. So to simplify WE ARE OK.” he said.
However, some netizens still try to lecture Vice to be considerate next time.
“You need to be kind and considerate of your workmates. You don’t own the show and the show does not evolve around you. Whether she was offended or not, it’s a learning lesson not to be self-centered and also give others their “moment”. When others have their time, allow them to.” netizen @hellolady1998 said.
