Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chairperson Lala Sotto made a short statement on the criticisms being received by her father Tito Sotto and Helen Gamboa.
In a report by Bandera, Lala was asked by her publicist Pilar Mateo about her reaction to the criticisms being received by her parents.
According to Lala, Tito, and Helen were doing the same thing for 44 years in Eat Bulaga, but this was the first time that the two faced issues because of their sweetness.
“Hello tita (Pilar) naman 44 yrs na sila ganyan sa Eat Bulaga never naman nagka-issue,” Lala said.
It can be recalled that on the July 29 episode of E.A.T, Tito received criticisms on social media after he passionately expressed a gesture of love to his wife Helen, whom he married 52 years ago.
Some netizens compared the actions done by Tito to Vice Ganda and Ion Perez, so some of them urged the MTRCB head to investigate her own father.
It’s Showtime fans also speculated that the possible suspension of the Kapamilya show may benefit Tito’s noontime show, E.A.T.
They even asked Lala to resign due to the alleged conflict of interest.
As of writing, there’s still no statement coming from MTRCB about the request from It’s Showtime fans.
