I never wrote my blogs for more than 5 months ago because I have a part time job at Loblaws Bayview which I started last March 2013. I will be busier on my studies on LINC and review on piano exams this August to accomplish my Associate Royal Conservatory Teaching (ARCT) diploma in 2014.
I’m not really surprised that a gay co-host of the noontime variety show who was behind insulting a veteran broadcast journalist and the “rape joke” on the segment “I-Vice Ganda Mo Ako” which happened last May 17 at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Jose Viceral (Vice Ganda) who distorted Jessica Soho because of overweight including a rape joke against her. This is very disastrous and humiliating not just for Ms. Soho but to all colleagues of GMA NEWS and Philippine media, too.
Vice Ganda did not really know the life of Ms. Jessica Soho. For me, Jessica Soho started as a simple correspondent from the Marcos administration. She survived perilous deaths such as helicopter crash, hostage crisis in Tugegarao, bomb explosions in Afghanistan and more. Jessica Soho is more experienced in broadcasting that she faced different dangers in the Philippines and around the world. She is an outstanding world class journalist that she obtained a prestigious George PEABODY Awards and became finalist of New York Film Festival.
Jessica Soho is a current Vice President of GMA NEWS and has two shows: Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (One Heart, Jessica Soho) on GMA 7 and The State of the Nation on GMA NEWS TV Channel 11. I salute her for A DISTINCTIVE, WORLD CLASS BROADCAST JOURNALIST!
Here’s my response for Vice Ganda’s “Rape Joke” on his stupid show last May 17. Many past comedians did not use vulgar words or such offensive words that can hurt everybody.
Rape is a most serious crime and not a joke because it adds insults or humiliates against women and children either past or present time. Women groups like Gabriela, etc will demand a huge protest or file a class suit against Vice Ganda sooner or later because of the disparaging issues to all victims of rape and such domestic violence against women and children.
Here’s my excerpt commentary at Facebook:
“I am strongly disappointed on the negative feedback for Vice Ganda because her jokes are foolish and offensive to the main celebrities, news anchors and hosts of different shows (or networks). Vice Ganda didn’t think before he will speak to the public. ‘My unsolicited advice for all Filipinos there to boycott watching all shows of Vice Ganda on ABS-CBN because it degrades spirituality and morality to us Filipinos.
Shame on you Vice Ganda because your words were inappropriate and offensive!!!'”
I have one unsolicited advice to Vice Ganda that he must think before to speak. Never attack people or religion. What if he will mock against Muslim brothers on his show? Will he hide in one place? For me, he will nowhere to hide because my brother Muslims are hot tempered and vengeful. He will be beaten and put to death by them because of insults and destructive blows against prophet Muhammad and the teachings of Quo’ran for his stupid punchline. NEVER DO THAT, VICE GANDA to my Muslim Brothers or any religious denominations because I love them as my brothers indeed.
I call to all Filipino viewers in my country must be vigilant on watching shows at all times. May I ask to all parents to guide and to monitor all your children on watching television day and night.
To all the members of Movie Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) must sanction or give warning to the hosts and anchors of all programs against Filipino viewers and welfare of women and children then decide whether to reprimand or to suspend immediately.
And finally to all the broadcast networks (ABS-CBN-2, GMA-7 and TV5) must have ethics to “authorize” sanction all the erring behaviors of your talents, hosts and anchors in your network company!
God bless everyone!
