The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chair, Lala Sotto, disclosed that It’s Showtime and its leading host, Vice Ganda, didn’t try to coordinate with their agency.
During the press conference about the 12-day suspension imposed by MTRCB against It’s Showtime, Sotto said that the people behind It’s Showtime, or the comedian, didn’t even reach out.
According to Sotto, their decision might been changed if the noontime show talked with them.
“No effort, no dialogues, no form of coordination or cooperation with us,” said Sotto.
MTRCB also insisted that their 12-day suspension against It’s Showtime is not that harsh as her critics claimed.
“I may add do’n sa harshness may mga gustong i-cancel na ‘yung noontime show, merong six months at may one-year, so which is harsh? We don’t want to entertain those suggestions, the board decided on its own, we don’t want to be persuade, so I don’t know what is harsh.” Atty. Paulino Cases of MTRCB said.
It can be recalled that netizens noticed Vice took several swipes against MTRCB in the past weeks.
“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.

Sotto then expressed her admiration to Coco Martin, who went personally to MTRCB to talk about the issue they faced after airing one of the episodes of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo.
“Wala talaga kaming masasabi kay Coco, I’m such a fan,” she said.
