Fans of ABS-CBN couldn’t hide their dismay over the latest joke of Joey de Leon during one of the episodes of Eat Bulaga.
During the Bawal Judgmental segment of the longest-running noontime show, one of its contestants talked when the veteran comedian made a joke.
“Buti pa kayo may prangkisa,” Joey said.
Some noticed that one of its hosts, Maja Salvador who’s a former ABS-CBN talent didn’t laugh at Joey’s joke.
Some quickly guessed that Joey was referring to the failed renewal of the franchise by ABS-CBN, which made them lose thousands of employees.
Kapamilya fans criticized Joey for his joke.
