MTRCB Chair Lala Sotto, nagsalita tungkol sa ginawa ni Vice Ganda kay Axel Cruz

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chairperson Lala Sotto made a statement amid the complaints received by It’s Showtime after Vice Ganda called out a participant of EXpecially For You on national television.

Several netizens asked MTRCB to suspend It’s Showtime again after Vice refused to apologize to Axel Cruz for calling him out.


“Oy, hindi pwede yun, that’s bad! Don’t do that, you ask for permission. Alam mo bang pwede kang mademanda sa ginagawa mo? Don’t do that, hindi ka pwedeng biglang nagnanakaw ng halik,” Vice told Axel during the May 31 episode of It’s Showtime.

Talent manager and entertainment reporter Ogie Diaz asked MTRCB’s chairperson, Lala Sotto, about her thoughts on the issue, to which the public official gladly replied.

Lala believed that Vice acted appropriately during the situation when Axel appeared to be attempting to kiss Christine, during their meeting on the noontime show.


“I don’t have an official statement. But, in my opinion, the hosts acted appropriately in the given situation,” she said.

Ogie believed that Lala was already careful with releasing statements following the criticism she received when she led the suspension of It’s Showtime.


It can be recalled that It’s Showtime was removed from the air temporarily due to Vice and Ion Perez’s actions during a segment made for children.
