Vice Ganda demonstrates he is still a man at heart after 'fat' swipe at Jessica Soho

Apparently you simply can't take the man out of Jose Marie Viceral (a.k.a. Vice Ganda) no matter how woman he looks. Jokes dished out by the popular Filipino comedian was simply un-womanly. As most women -- even certified babes -- who struggle with insecurities surrounding their physical appearance know at heart, jokes about weight hit home hard. But what really took the cake was Viceral's reportedly flippant regard for rape -- notably its particularly horrific flavour: gang rape.
During his concert at the Araneta Coliseum, Vice Ganda made fun of Soho's weight and "joked that if Jessica Soho were a bold star in a movie, the scene would have to involve a 'gang rape,'" GMA News Online reported.
Soho, class act that she is, responds with grace:
"Rape is not a joke and should never be material for a comedy concert," Jessica Soho, who is GMA's Vice President for News and Public Affairs, said in a statement.
"I thank all those who shared my hurt and expressed their support, but this should not be about me but about rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. The horrors they go through are unspeakable and should never be taken lightly, especially by way of a cruel joke," Soho said in a statement sent to GMA News Online.
There are many no-go zones when it comes to humour. Rape is top of that list along with a woman's physical appearance and her children. Some folks in showbiz and cyberspace simply cannot get that and create entire cult followings hinged upon a taste for vicious attacks against a person's personal circumstances which, otherwise, is really none of anyone's business.

Philippine society can best be evaluated by sampling the sort of people Filipinos put on a pedestal. Vice Ganda is at the top of his game and is considered a demigod by his legions -- millions and millions -- of fans. He attracts a hefty talent fee for every appearance and, as such, puts a concrete peso value on the solid business proposition the dysfunctional aesthetic tastes of Filipinos command. It is a business value proposition around which much of Philippine showbiz was built.

  1. Of course you can't take the man out of him, he identifies as male. Just because he's a very effeminate gay man doesn't mean that he's any less of a man. Your opening line stinks of transphobia.

    2. And I doubt it very much that he identifies as male.

  2. Ano po kaya ang reaksyon dito ng ABS-CBN management tungkol sa joke ni Vice Ganda? Such a very disappointing behaviour he did. Grabe, gawin ba namang katatawanan ang isang respetadong tao na mas may mataas na narating compare sa kanya. He is not deserving for a respect. Ang yabang porket sumikat ka? Public apology is not enough, He should be sued and be imprisoned. He even mentioned that Ms. Charo Santos is having fun na he made joke towards a personality from other network, the nerve. Siraulo

    1. ABS won't react. If you look at the rape joke part, Charo Santos had most of the laugh while Vice was making fun of Jessica Soho. It was a revelation of what kind of people run this network which prefer profit among many othee things.

    1. So much butthurt. Everything and everyone should be open to ridicule and criticism. If it was meant as a joke, take it as a joke. Get over it.

    2. And it is precisely that attitude that is one of the reasons why the Philippines is a basketcase. Because Filipinos can't discern when they've crossed a line.

  7. Basta ABS-CBN, walang moralidad. Most of their shows are promoting degeneracy and immorality. They make the Filipinos dumb.

  8. Anak ng titing, bully lang si vice. Pede naman siyang gumamit ng salitang mataba o anumang salita na mgdidescribe sa isang tao, ba't naman kasi pangalan pa ang ginagamit nya para magpatawa? Ang masaklap pa, cguro di niya kayang magpatawa kung di sya manlalalit ng tao. Pede naman nyang laitin sarili nya sa pagpapatawa. Ang ginawa ni Vice ay isa sa maraming klase ng pambubully. namamahiya sya ng tao para makapagpatawa...

  9. e kc po kung gumamit c vice ng pangalang Aleng Tale e cnu yon? ginamit nya ang pangalang Jessica Soho dahil kilala yon at mai imagine ng nanonood sa concert kung anu ang sinasabi ni vice ngunit hindi iyon makatao ang ginawa ni vice isang pambabastos iyon. oo hindi aq nakapanood pero sa mga downloaded clips na napo post sa fb maririnig mo ng mabuti panu sinabi ni vice ang gang rape at kay jessica sojo pa. ganun pa man kung sino ang may otoridad o kung may batas man na angkop sa nagawa ni vice na pagkakamali e hayaan natin ang may otoridad magbigay ng kaukulang parusa o penalty kay vice.

    nag sumikap c vice na humingi ng tawad kay jessica sojo pero inisnab sya nito. alam natin na hindi madaling tanggapin ang sorry kung sa ganung klaseng kasalanan.

    let's see what will happen next pag nagsalita na c jessica sojo regarding sa isyung ito.

  11. When one makes fun of another, and the latter is hurt and humiliated - it is bullying. Like sex and violence, bullying MUST NOT be shown to children. Its broadcast in TV shows, concerts, movies, etc., MUST be restricted.
