Joey De Leon’s “lubid” joke on the Gimme 5 segment on TV5’s noontime show “E.A.T.” has drawn the ire of netizens. The comedian replied “Lubid, lubid. Nakakalimutan n’yo” when a contestant on the program asked about things that are hung around the neck.
After the scene went viral, many netizens called on MTRCB — currently headed by Lala Sotto, daughter of “E.A.T.” host Tito Sotto — to penalize the show for Joey’s joke. “It’s Showtime,” a rival show of “E.A.T.,” was recently suspended for 12 days due to an allegedly inappropriate icing-eating moment between real-life couple Vice Ganda and Ion Perez.
In response to the public’s request, MTRCB released a statement regarding the scene, promising to investigate whether Joey violated “Presidential Decree No. 1986 and/or its Implementing Rules and Regulations.”
