TAPE, Inc., meanwhile, released an official statement signed by its President Romeo "Jon" N. Jalosjos Jr. and Director of Finance Seth Frederick "Bullet" P. Jalosjos.

The production company said they are "saddened" by the turn of events last May 31 but they "respect" the decision of the show hosts to leave "Eat Bulaga!" and GMA 7 Network, their home for 28 years.

"We are grateful to the men and women who worked tirelessly for the past 43 years to make our noontime show number 1. The success of Eat Bulaga is not dependent only on three (3) people but on the collaborative efforts of its talents, crew, and loyal viewers," they continued.

"...It is unfortunate, but life must go on. As with life, we have to accept changes but we have a duty to every Filipino," they added.
