Vice Ganda and the GMA news subordinated are now all over the news and social media. it is a delayed reaction about Vice ganda making Jessica Soho's as a laughing stock on his May 17 concert. The two minute monoloque is about Soho doing a bold movie titled “Tinimbang Ka Ngunit Sobra,”. Vice Ganda joked about Soho having a hard time using a weighing scale, “Ang hirap nga lang kung si Jessica Soho magbo-bold. Kailangan gang rape lagi. Sasabihin ng rapist, ‘Ipasa ang lechon.’ Sasabihin naman ni Jessica, ‘Eh nasaan yung apple?”
Saksi anchor Arnold Clavio reacted through his morning program in DZBB. “Bakit mo binibiktima ang mga taong seryoso sa trabaho nila? Huwag mo silang kasangkapanin para lang makapagpagpatawa. Bakit hindi taga-diyan sa inyo ang gawin mong subject ng jokes mo? Bakit hindi taga-ABS-(CBN)?” he said. Other GMA News reporters followed shortly on twitter that focused on Vice alleged insensitivity to gang rape victims.
Jessica Soho reacted to the issue with an official Statement sent to GMA News Online:
Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert. I thank all those who shared my hurt and expressed their support but this should not be about me but about the rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable.
My say: The issue issue here is not about Soho's weight but the "gang rape". Rape is a very sensitive issue and should not be use as a joke. Anyway, Vice Ganda is known to this kind of distasteful joke and his fans (masa) loves her for what he is. No wonder he enjoys what he is doing and do not mind what others will feel with his insensitive jokes and comments. Being funny is not about mocking others, being insensitive or disrespectful. It's about sharing a good sense of humor for people to laugh together.
