Veteran comedian-TV host Joey de Leon once again made noise in social media.
Netizens link Joey’s latest Instagram post to Hashtag Franco Hernandez’s death.
Veteran comedian-TV host Joey de Leon received negative comments on his latest Instagram post. Netizens associated the post of the 71-year old “Eat Bulaga!” host to the death of Hashtag member Franco Hernandez.
On his throwback photo during his trip in the Dead Sea, between Israel and Jordan, it can be seen that Joey is floating.
He wrote, “Nuknukan ka na ng katangahan pag sa DEAD SEA nalunod ka pa!”
Recently, Hashtag member Franco Hernandez died due to drowning during his trip in Malita, Davao Occidental last November 11, 2017. Netizens found Joey’s post to be insensitive and replied negatively against the veteran actor-TV host.
“At this point Joey de Leon is just trying his best to gain media attention in which he lacks of. Pathetic. Ignore the fool and give the poor fella what he deserves. Retirement.”
“JDL just wanted people to laugh.”
“Hindi nananadya si JDL.”
“Paano naging tungkol kay Franco yon?”
Bruh. He wouldn’t even delete the tweet in the first place if it wasn’t about their rival station, and it wouldn’t be a throwback image about drowning.
Why defend Joey de Leon?”
“what the hell is wrong with joey de leon?! he also made a joke when rico yan passed. how crass!”
“Woke up to Joey De Leon’s shit head joke. What a morning aye?”
“This is just my opinion, if hindi nananadya si Joey de Leon, Why would he have to post that throwback picture with that kind of caption? Hindi naman siguro tayo tanga.”
“First ,issue about DEPRESSION, second, about sarcastic post about getting Drown of Franco, next? Hey joey de leon tanda!”
“A pathetic old man hitting a new low. Insensitive and disgusting! Wag kayong tanga tangahan, bastos talaga yang Joey de Leon na yan. How come some people still look up to him?”
“most of us are aware about dead sea but posting about it with a caption related to drowning now is not the right time, joey de leon 🙂 learn how to respect.”
“to Joey de Leon,
how insensitive of you para magpapansin at this point of time? sobrang attention seeker nyo naman po. you should know when to speak and when you should shut your mouth, lalo kung wala ka naman pong magandang sasabihin. 🙄😏”
Furthermore, “It’s Showtime” host Teddy Corpuz and Hashtag member Paolo Angeles also commented on the IG post. They condemned the allegedly ‘insensitive’ post of the “Eat Bulaga!” host.
“Sana binigay mo na lng muna sa amin ang maipagluksa ang kaibigan at kapatid namin, kahit isang araw lang. kahit ngayon lang. Nakakalungkot ka po. Ipapag pray po kita na gabayan ka ng puong may kapal,” Teddy wrote.
Hashtag Paolo also expressed his disapproval and called Joey, ‘bastos.’
“Tanda mo na bastos ka pa. Wala akong pake kahit sikat ka. Mga joke mo wala sa lugar. Sobrang bastos mo,” he wrote.
As of now, Joey has not yet released any official statement about this new controversy.
