- Luis responded and advised the netizen to take a chill pill and not be easily hurt over what they see on TV
Once again, Luis Manzano was called out on social media for his tactless comments on TV. One netizen has pointed out his offensive comments on Bayani Agbayani on the show "I Can See Your Voice".
A Twitter user under the account @aerdnawamilah did not really specify which episode or certain part of the show he or she was talking about, however, it was one punchline which was directed to the comedian.
The netizen even made a thread on why the behavior was worth to be called out.
“I have to point this out. This is not me being politically correct. This is me pointing out how intolerable the actions of this celebrity are," the tweets read. "@luckymanzano I’m sorry that I have to tag you, but I’m not going to be sorry what I’m about to say. This is a thread."
According to the thread that is now deleted, Luis' comments and 'jokes' are below the belt and are offensive--even to people who are not even Bayani.
“Hindi ako si Bayani pero nakaka-offend na talaga ang mga ‘jokes’ mo as the I Can See Your Voice host. They’re not funny anymore with your patronizing tone that is already degrading," the netizen lamented.
Turns out, the post was about his criticism of Bayani's English speaking skills.
“It’s always about his grammar, his lack of fluency in the English language, and his looks.”
Being known for engaging bashers online, Luis responded on the same day.
“You’re the only one with these comments and sees it this way, that must be a high pedestal you are on or you must be a fragile snowflakes," he tweeted. "Relax J talk to friends and family, leave the house and enjoy life!:).”
“If all you saw/heard were the ‘pronounciations and grammar mistakes’ then everything just flew past your head. Maybe you should do a mirror check and ask why you choose to notice these things and feel that negativity right away," Luis added in a series of tweets.
The reaction of the other netizens are divided: some are in favor of Luis' response and found nothing wrong with his banter, while others agree that there maybe times the actor-hosts jokes are not really funny, and a bit offensive.
Luis serves as the host of the show 'I Can See Your Voice". Bayani, on the other hand is part of the panel of the show. The two have expressed friendship even behind the camera.
