Joey de Leon takes a swipe against TAPE Inc. on national television: ‘Yung mga peke, tigil na kayo’

E.A.T host Joey de Leon couldn’t stop himself from taking a swipe against Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) and rebranded Eat Bulaga.

During one of the episodes of TV5’s top-rated noontime show, Joey was set to introduce their celebrity guests for their segment ‘Babala! “Wag Kayong Ganun”, when he proudly proclaimed that they were the legitimate ones.


“Legit, kami legit.” said Joey. “‘Yung mga alam niya na, peke, baliktarin niyo ‘yung legit, tigil na kayo,” 

While talking to their celebrity guests Karla Estrada and Alex Calleja, who were part of the talk show Face-to-Face, Joey complained about some shows that have been using their title.

It can be recalled that face-to-face featured feuds between two camps, and its hosts were tasked to give advice and reconcile the guests of the show. That’s why Joey also tried to ask for some help from the face-to-face hosts.

“Ang sitwasyon natin ngayon ay tungkol sa mga shows na ginagamit ‘yung pangalan namin,” Joey said.


“Naawa ako sa mga ganung tao eh, mga walang sariling pag-iisip,” he added.

Netizens quickly guessed that Joey was referring to TAPE Inc’s continuous usage of Eat Bulaga title.

Joey, who claimed to be the one who created the title ‘Eat Bulaga,’ was reportedly having a trademark dispute with TAPE Inc.


TAPE Inc. already registered the Eat Bulaga title in 2011, but Joey said that they’re not aware with the filing made by their former production company.
