Vice Ganda couldn’t stop taking swipes against the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) and its chair Lala Sotto while hosting It’s Showtime.
It can be recalled that MTRCB imposed a 12-day suspension against It’s Showtime after Vice and his boyfriend Ion Perez allegedly committed ‘indecent acts’ during one of its segments, ‘Isip Bata’.
On September 8, 2023, during the ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ segment, Vice talked to one of its contestants who shared that she was not allowed to have a boyfriend by her brothers.
However, according to the said contestant, her brothers were in a relationship and not practicing the advice they were uttering to her.
Vice then talked about ‘double standards’ and the fans quickly guessed that the comedian was possibly also sending a message to MTRCB.
“May mga ganyan. Kung maka-impose akala mo naman di nila ginagawa, di ba? Yung pag iba, mali. Pero kayo, hindi niyo ginagawa?!” Vice said.
“Sa iba mali, pero sa inyo puwede? Double standard!” he added.

It can be recalled that several fans criticized MTRCB for its ‘double standards’ accusing Sotto of favoring her father’s show E.A.T, which is one of the competitors of It’s Showtime.
According to them, MTRCB should also suspend E.A.T for the violation committed by Wally Bayola after he cursed during one of its episodes.
