It was last month, October 2019, when the ABS-CBN noontime shows Its Showtime, celebrated their 10th year anniversary.
As usual, the anniversary celebration gives their audience outstanding episodes for the whole month.
Aside from the annual Magpasikat challenge of the hosts, there is the Tawag Ng Tanghalan celebrity edition, where we saw celebrities competing and showcasing their talent in singing.
It was no doubt that we’ve enjoyed every episode as we are able to see former stars going back on television.
However, one supposed to be a contestant is now crying foul over his sudden cancellation on the said competition.
It was the comedian Gil Morales, popularly known as Ate Gay.
Previously, Ate Gay revealed that he was not able to appear in Tawag ng Tanghalan and the staff of Its Showtime has no explanation about this.
However, the unfortunate thing happened for the comedian. He shared through his recent Facebook post that he has no idea why he will no longer be part of the TNT Celebrity Edition. Apparently, he already did some pictorial and plugging about this.
A month after the show’s anniversary celebration, the 48-year-old comedian is now stating his sentiments again now over the host Vice Ganda’s statement in the recent episode.
“Huwag po ako .. TAO ako .. yung ginawa sa akin ng TNT di makaTAO…” Ate Gay said.
This is after Vice Ganda’s joke on one TNT contestant, last November 21.
“Totoo ba na masama ang loob mo dahil hindi ka naisalang sa celebrity edition, Ate Gay?” Vice quips.
“Kasi ang dami mo raw kasing chika sa Facebook,” he added.
But the host cleared the statement to the contestant by saying, “Hindi po kayo yun? Kahawig lang, oo.”
Although it’s just a joke, Ate Gay didn’t like it and found it offensive.
He then explained his side saying that the show’s management didn’t take time to explain to him why he suddenly canceled from the episode after his pictorials with the other celebrity contestants.
“bago ako magpost nagpapaalam pa ako sa manager ko at sya kasi ang kausap ng showtime at hindi ako..
“sensya na po pero makapangyarihan kasi mga binibitawang salita sa telebisyon at eto lang ang sandata ko para maipagtanggol ko sarili ko..
“last na ito bout showtime nagpapasalamat pa rin ako kasi namemention name ko… lab u all”
