Comedian and host Vice Ganda has been known for making jokes about the current trending events both political and showbiz-related.

During the show’s Bidaman segment, the host quipped that viewers should “concentrate” on the grand finals week of the competition, instead of waiting for Bea’s response to Julia’s statement.
“Tigil muna ang abang-abang sa reply ni Bea. Dito muna tayo. Hindi ‘yung isang buong gabi, nag-aabang kayo ng reply na ang daming napuyat,” he said, laughing.
The day after Julia spoke out, Vice took to Twitter and quoted a statement in light of the matter. His post gained thousands of retweets and likes.
“Gandang Umaga!!!! Make this day productive. Wag puro abang sa sagot ni Bea! Chugug!” he wrote.

The comedian was referring to the long Instagram post of Julia breaking her silence on cheating allegations with Gerald, Bea’s ex-boyfriend. Julia accused Bea of bullying for liking several social media posts that pertained to her rumored relationship with Gerald. However, instead of gaining sympathy, most netizens expressed their anger towards Julia and hoped that Bea will soon air her reaction to the post.
A part of her statement said: “You can play the victim all you want, but I refuse to be your victim.”
Inspired by the trending post, Vice made a playful impromptu dramatic exchange with BidaMan finalist, Wize.
Vice joked: “Lagi kang ganyan, pa-victim ka.
“I don’t care if you choose to be the victim, but I will never be your victim.”
He also mentioned the names of the persons involved in the controversy when he announced that It’s Showtime‘s hashtag for the day led the trending topics on Twitter.
“Tayo na ang trending! Kasi kagabi, ‘Bea,’ ‘Julia,’ ‘Gerald’ — iyon ang mga trending. So naiba na. Pasensya na muna, ha. Kami raw muna ang trending,” he said.
Days after the controversy started, Bea confirmed that she and Gerald didn’t have a formal breakup and that he just started not talking to her. The term ‘ghosting’ became the top trending topic on social media following Bea’s revelation.
Gerald recently aired his statements about the controversy. He said in an interview with ABS-CBN News that he and Bea were constantly fighting until he realized that the relationship was not healthy anymore.
Vice had also made use of the word ‘ghosting’ multiple times on the show.
He joked with another finalist named JR, whom he met for the first time during the episode. He said that was the case because their past romance had a bitter end.
“I just stopped talking to him,” Vice said imitating Bea’s statements in her past interview.
In a serious conversation in the August 6 episode of the show, Vice related the term ‘ghosting’ to a contestant named MJ. MJ narrated that he had left his fiancée without saying goodbye.
Observing that MJ felt no regrets about his past, Vice said to him: “Kaya namin ginagawa ‘to, we are preparing you actually. Imagine mo, si Gerald at si Bea, in-ininterview si Gerald, ta’s ganyan sumagot, sa palagay mo may manonood pa ng pelikula ni Gerald?”
Because of his recent shady jokes, Vice’s name once again trended on Twitter.
