Ace comedian Vice Ganda resumed today, Jan. 20, his tirades against an unidentified person whom he calls a clown during the noontime program “It’s Showtime” on the Kapamilya Channel.
Vice Ganda did not name the clown in his remark. But observers said that the comedian was obviously referring to Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque Jr.
The word war between Vice Ganda and Roque began when the comedian raised the issue of the right to choose the vaccine the people want to use on Jan. 12.
On Twitter, Vice Ganda said: “Sa sabong panlaba nga choosy tayo e sa bakuna pa kaya. Ano to basta may maisaksak lang?! Vaklang twoooaahhh!!!”
Roque declared: “Di ko sinabing hindi puwede magsalita kahit sino. Pero pagdating sa bakuna, kinakailangan na ang dapat pakinggan ay ang eksperto sa bakuna. Eh sino ang ating pagkakatiwalaan? Siguro po hindi mga komedyante.”
Vice Ganda uttered: “Ako, di ako clown. I’m a comedian. At may kilala akong clown. I’m a comedian, you are the clown.”
