An assistant of comedian Vice Ganda was facing controversy after several artists complained about her disrespectful behavior.
In an interview, Gene Juanich, who’s a US-based Filipino singer said that he was invited to perform at one of Vice’s shows in the United States.
According to Gene, they were disrespected several times by the said assistant so they decided not to perform any events related to Vice in the future.
Aside from Gene, another singer Garth Garcia also reportedly received bad treatment from Vice’s assistant.
“Gusto ko pong ipaalam sa buong entertainment world ang pambabastos na ginawa sa amin ng assistant ni Vice Ganda during the show. Bale reaction ko po ito at kompirmasyon sa reklamo ni Garth Garcia na naisulat sa PEP, na pareho kami ng naranasan sa tao ni VG.” he stated.
Gene also said that even Vice showed a bad attitude towards them despite being part of the comedian’s show.
“Ako mismo, e, nakaranas ng di magandang trato at pambabastos sa assistant ni Vice at si Vice naman, ni hindi namamansin sa amin as front acts at ni hindi man lang kinumusta sa backstage or mag ‘Hi-Hello’ man lang sa amin as local artists na front act niya.” he said.
“During our rehearsals po sa mismong stage, lagi kaming sinisigawan ng babaeng assistant ni VG na dapat daw, hanggang dito lang kami sa area na ito, very rude ang kanyang pagsasalita na para lang kaming mga langaw. Sila ang dayo at bisita lang dito sa US, kami ang taga-rito kaya dapat sila ang maging polite at magkaroon ng respeto sa amin sa pag-support namin sa show ni VG.
“Si VG, hindi mo man lang makausap. bawal ka makalapit sa kanya, kapag lalapit ka, sisigawan ka ng assistant ng, ‘Alis! Alis kayo rito!’ Grabe po, para kaming mga langaw lang na binubugaw.” he added.
As of writing, Vice has yet to give any statement about the accusations he was receiving from the US-based singer.
