- However, one netizen was offended by his “Crown of Thorns”
- According to the basher, the comedian disrespected God by wearing it since Jesus Christ wore it during his Passion
Vice Ganda stunned many people with his awesome gown and attire at the 2018 ABS-CBN Ball.
However, KAMI learned that not everyone was pleased with his getup.
A netizen took to social media to slam Vice for wearing the “Crown of Thorns.” According to the basher, this is a blatant disrespect to Jesus Christ, who wore the crown during his Passion.
“This is outright offensive to all Christians because the Crown of Thorns represents a deeper meaning for us. Disclaimer: I have nothing against the person but rather the act thereof. #respectingreligiousbeliefs #kontinggalangnalangsana #walanabangibangmasuot #epallang
“For Us Christians, the crown of thorns is a reminder of two things: (1) Jesus was, and is, indeed ‘the king’. One day, the entire universe will bow down to Jesus as the “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16). What the Roman soldiers meant as a mockery, was in fact a picture of Christ’s two roles, first of suffering servant (Isaiah 53), and second of conquering Messiah-King (Revelation 19). (2) Jesus was willing to endure the pain, the insults, and the shame, all on our account. The crown of thorns, and the suffering that went with it, are long gone, and Jesus has now received the crown of which He is worthy. ‘But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone’ (Hebrews 2:9, emphasis added).
“There is further symbolism embodied in the crown of thorns. When Adam and Eve sinned, bringing evil and a curse upon the world, part of the curse upon humanity was ‘…cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you…’ (Genesis 3:17-18, emphasis added). The Roman soldiers unknowingly took an object of the curse and fashioned it into a crown for the one who would deliver us from that curse. ‘Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree’’ (Galatians 3:13). Christ, in His perfect atoning sacrifice, has delivered us from the curse of sin, of which a thorn is a symbol. While intended to be a mockery, the crown of thorns was, in fact, an excellent symbol of who Jesus is and what He came to accomplish.
“Nkakabastos na! Umabot na sa ulo ang kasikatan to the point na you don’t care anymore basta mkaepal ka lang. So downright worthless! Classless! Disgusting! Kaya nawawala respeto sa mga lgbt dahil sa tulad netong bastos na acto! Pweh,” the basher wrote.
Netizens bashed Vice’s basher and supported the comedian:
“Inggit ka ata??.. Kaka hiya pananalita MO Baka nga Mas marami PA Siya na gawa Kaysa sau!!!”
“Ang dami naman nitong drama”
“Unang una sa lahat kung may gusto kang patunayan daanin natin sa magandang usapan, at pangalawa kung kasalanan ang ginawa nya hindi tayo ang dapat manghusga dahil hindi tayo ang diyos”
In a previous report by KAMI, Vice responded to a netizen who bashed him for supposedly wearing designer clothes instead of using his money to help the poor.
The comedian is one of the most successful celebrities in showbiz today.
From being a stand-up comedian in comedy bars, he has become a movie superstar and the host of the Kapamilya program “It’s Showtime.”
