Vice Ganda, target of demolition job?

This incident sparked mixed reactions online.

Vice Ganda and his noontime show ‘It’s Showtime’ are currently under intense scrutiny and backlash.

This follows a controversial episode of the ‘EXpecially For You’ segment, where contestant Axel Cruz kissed searcher Christine without her consent.

Christine later posted a TikTok video stating she was not offended by Axel’s kiss. In response, Vice Ganda tweeted that he planned to apologize to Axel. However, during the closing part of the June 4 episode of ‘It’s Showtime,’ Vice retracted his apology plan after further discussions with Christine and the show’s psychologist revealed that Christine indeed felt uncomfortable with Axel’s actions.

A viral TikTok video later showed Christine in tears, speaking on the phone with the show’s staff, alleging that she was being portrayed as a liar.

This incident sparked mixed reactions online. While some netizens criticized Vice and the show, others defended him, noting an apparent ‘organized’ pattern to the backlash and suggesting a potential troll farm behind the attacks.

Former ‘Pinoy Big Brother Connect’ housemate Justin Dizon commented on Twitter, “Ano to? May demolition job kay Vice Ganda? Tapos sinabay niyo pa ngayong Pride month ha. Mga inggitera kayo. And don’t get me started with these low tier TikTok ‘influencers’ who share the same script.”

Comedian and influencer Ate Dick also shared the same sentiment.

Other netizens added:

Some compared the situation to the demolition job faced by Maggie Wilson, noting the similar and familiar attacks being directed at Vice.

Despite the controversy, Vice remained unbothered, appearing at Bang Pineda’s fashion show ‘State of Bang’ on Wednesday night.

Aside from being one of the country’s most popular celebrities, Vice Ganda’s show ‘It’s Showtime’ continues to be the leading noontime program. Known for being a proud Kakampink, Vice is also vocal about social and political issues.
