- Joey de Leon got involved on several issues this year regarding his comments on TV and posts on social media
- During the presscon of 'Meant To Beh,' Vic reacts on the issues concerning his old friend Joey de Leon
- Vic and Joey's friendship have truly stood the test of time
During the grand presscon of Meant To Beh which is an official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017, Vic Sotto was asked for an opinion about the issues which involve his Eat Bulaga co-host Joey de Leon.
Joey got involved in two issues this year.
One is his comment about depression.
"Yung depression gawa-gawa lang ng mga tao yan. Gawa nila sa sarili nila (Depression is just made up by people)," De Leon said.
People say that he is ignorant and insensitive.
Then the most recent was his post on his Instagram account right after Hashtag Franco's death due to drowning.
He captioned a photo of him with:
“Nuknukan ka na ng katangahan pag sa DEAD SEA nalunod ka pa!”
(You are simply too stupid if you still drown in the Dead Sea.)
Vic said that you should be ready for bashers especially on social media.
He also said that we should be responsible on what we say and according to him Joey knows how to apologize especially if he believes he's at fault.
“Si Pareng Joey naman, sanay sa intriga ‘yan, e.
"Kahit na nung araw pa, marami nang pinagdaanan ‘yan.
“Yung paminsang-minsang naba-bash, e, kasama… kapag nag-social media ka, you have to be ready for anything.
“You have to be responsible for what you say, kung sa tingin mo…
"Kung ikaw man ay nagkamali sa iyong mga desisyon…
"Si Pareng Joey naman, nagso-sorry kung talaga namang… kung sa tingin niya nagkamali siya.
"Yun naman ang sukatan ng tunay na lalaki or tunay na tao, yung kaya mong i-admit na mali ka, mag-sorry ka.
"Sorry, ibig sabihin, hindi mo na uulitin.”
