A group filed complaints against Vice Ganda and Ion Perez for allegedly violating the cybercrime law and other charges for still unknown reasons.
On September 11, 2023, the group Kapisanan ng Social Media Broadcasters ng Pilipinas (KSMBP) filed the charges against the It’s Showtime hosts before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
Atty. Mark Tolentino who represented the group said that they would hold a press conference on September 13 to explain why they decided to file charges against Vice and Ion.
Last month, the group met with the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) chairperson Lala Sotto to discuss the proliferation of ‘immoral’ content on some television shows.
It’s not yet known if the complaints they filed were related to the alleged indecent actions performed by Vice and Ion in front of several children during one of the episodes of the Isip Bata segment.
As of writing, Vice and Ion have yet to give any statement on the new charges they were facing.
Aside from the charges, It’s Showtime was also in the process of appealing the 12-day airing suspension imposed by MTRCB on them.
