Paolo Contis couldn’t hide his gratefulness to the officials of Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc. for their continuous trust in him.
In his statement, Paolo said he was only ignoring the misinformation and criticism thrown against him.
However, Paolo believed it was more important to look upon the positive side of the situation, saying that he remained an Eat Bulaga host despite the controversies surrounding him.
“Hindi naman talaga mawawala ang mga bashing and fake news lalo na sa ganitongn panahon. For now, we are very thankful na tuloy-tuloy ang work naming mga host. Masaya ako sa tiwalang binibigay sa akin ng cast, staff, lalo na ang Jalosjos family,” said Paolo.
“Tuloy lang kami sa pagbigay ng tulong at saya,” he added.
It can be recalled that Paolo was receiving criticism and swipes from E.A.T host Joey de Leon after he tried to defend TAPE’s stance over the decision of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL).
IPOPHL, on December 5, removed the trademark ownership of TAPE over Eat Bulaga branding, but Paolo insisted that the decision was not yet final.
However, several days after he made the statement, IPOPHL rejected the appeal of TAPE, putting Paolo in an awkward situation.
