Vice Ganda under fire after De Lima comment on “It’s Showtime”

  • Vice Ganda criticized over comment on ‘It’s Showtime.’
  • He compared Jugs Jugueta’s look to a “bloated Leila de Lima.”

Comedian and television host Vice Ganda was recently criticized over a comment he made at the The Magpasikat 2018 segment of It’s Showtime’sAnniBEKSary.

In the special segment, the other hosts played as the contestants of Miss Q & A. Jugs Jugueta, who was dubbed as Alakdawn Zulueta, was asked to describe the other contestants. This led to him describing Jugs Jugueta as someone who looked anomalous.

“Mukha siyang tiwali.”

Anne Curtis proceeded to ask what ‘tiwali’ meant and Vice immediately answered “Parang corrupt!”. A bit later he said, “Ang taray ni No. 1 oh, bloated si Leila de Lima oh. Mukhang nahiyang si Leila sa loob. May message ka ba kay Trillanes?”

Jugs answered, “Hoy, inaantay ka namin dito.”

Vice then received criticisms over his de Lima comment.

Sobra ka na minsan Vice . Ang pagbanggit mo kay Sen . de Lima kanina wala ka ng respeto. Siguro oras na para hinde ba kita panoorin. Hinde ka na nakakatuwa. Alalahanin mo sana walang kasalanan si Sen Leila . At ai Trillanes ? Sana tigilan mo na sila.

Dear Vice Ganda,

Lagi mong ginagawang katatawanan sila De Lima at Trillanes. Kung makulong ba si Trillanes, mawawala ba ang inflation? Mauubos ba ang shabu? And most importantly…


I just find it funny that after @itsShowtimeNa’s hosts performed acts that tackle societal issues inlcluding “bullying,” here is the ever arrogant @vicegandako making fun of the situation of senators de Lima and Trillanes. That “magpasikat” portion and the show scream hypocrisy.

Making fun of Sen. de Lima is not fun at all. It’s a reflection of the person making it.

Another netizen accused Vice Ganda of being brainwashed by President Rodrigo Duterte and their trolls.

What happened to you? Bakit ka nagpa-brainwash sa lowly trolls ni Duterte at kay Duterte mismo? It is bad enough that De Lima, a human rights defender, is in jail for no reason. It is worse that you have to make fun of her current situation. SHAME ON YOU & celebs like you!
